Triple Challenge Cards!

Hi Stamping Friends!

I have not one, but 2 Triple challenge cards to post today.  Both use color challenges from SCS, and both use layouts from Freshly Made Sketches.  Funny thing is, I tried to post the second one on Monday, but missed the FMS deadline by two minutes!  LOL  So it sat in my drafts.  I decided I might as well post another one with it.

My first card uses this week's color challenge (old olive, daffodil delight and pear pizzazz) along with today's Inspiration Challenge (this piece, in the Peat variety) and this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  I needed a card for my dear hubby for Father's Day.  I liked the yellow trim on the travel bag, and the green shades work well for summertime.  Combining the challenges was fun!

My card base is pear pizzazz, with a layer of very vanilla and old olive.  I stamped leaves, using one of my first stamp sets, "Simple Sketches," a 2-step stamp set.  After stamping, I ran it through the Big Shot with the square lattice folder.  I distressed the corners just a bit.  The main image is from "Lovely as a Tree," colored with markers, and with some sponging.  The sun was made with a sponge dauber.  The sentiment is from Delightful Dozen, and I added a spiral clip and some twine.  Inside, I used a computer generated sentiment, "You are my Sunshine"

Now here is the other card... I finished the Freshly Made Sketches challenge and hoped to link this card, but just missed the deadline.  The colors are from a recent SCS challenge (tempting turquoise, more mustard, and daffodil delight) and the sunshine theme went with one of last week's VSN challenges
My card base is more mustard.  I added strips of daffodil delight to a layer of tempting turquoise, then embossed them with the square lattice folder.  The sentiment is from SU's "Feel Goods", and the pennants are from a retired dsp pack... From the garden??  Not sure!  A large button from SU and some baker's twine finish it off.  I gave this card to one of my staff members.

Kinda funny...both cards have sunshine and square lattice embossing.  Funky coincidence!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
