Mr. & Mrs.- Medallion

I received this great medallion stamp from a Stampendous Blog Hop just in time to make this card for a wedding last week.  I like to use the colors from the wedding announcement when I have time.  The Mr. & Mrs. stamp is from Stampendous also and it was the perfect stamp for this one...

Simple but elegant, don't you think?

Paris in the Spring time...

I started this card for a challenge at CR84FN but ran out of time to post for this color challenge to use Grape, Blue, and Green:

But I also wanted to share this new Stampendous I Love Paris stamp which I was lucky enough to receive as a Blog Candy Bonus!  Pretty cool, huh?  And did I say Bonus?  Yes, there was more...I have another card to post later with another stamp I received from the Blog Hop...and I might as well enter this for the August Challenge-Focus on Sentiments over at the Stampendous Blog.

Here's a shot of the whole card:

I love this color combo!

Sentimental...and a Sketch

This card is for two challenges also...I was really excited to finally use this new sentiment stamp from Stampendous for the Sentimental Journey August Challenge to use a sentiment as the focus on your card.  I bought this little sea horse charm in silver and colored it with Copics so it would match the brad in the burlap flower a little better...I think it looks a little more realistic in brown than it did in silver.

This one is also for the Mojo Monday 253 Sketch Challenge:

This one took on a mind of its own...totally not the color or patterns that started out in my head...LOL!

Painted Flower Birthday

I worked on a couple of challenges this weekend, this one is for Mojo Monday 253 Contest:

and for Simon Says Stamp and Show: Challenge Paint:

  I used some Tim Holtz Crackled Paint in white and then sponged on some Antique Linen Distress Ink, and also painted a little on the punched text flower. (pages torn from an old Almanac)
