3 Cards - 2 Challenges

I couldn't decide between 2 colours of cardstock when I decided to do the Papertake Weekly Challenge, so... seeing as I was going to do the Magnolia Vs. Stampavie challenge also I decided to use the same patterned paper and but a different cardstock on each card. I was amazed at how that one element changed the whole look of the colour scheme. I also used the same colour inks to colour both images.

So this is the one I made for Papertake Weekly (using the hot pink card!!)
"Onto this weeks challenge which is to use spots and stripes on your project - you can make anything you like for the PTW challenge so yes to all scrapbook pages and altered items!"

And I made this one for the Magnolia Vs. Stampavie challenge.. (using Pear Bazzil Cardstock).
"*Week 21* A SKETCH FOR YOU - our Michelle has done a wonderful sketch for this weeks challenge".

Card ingredients:
Papers: MME Laundry Line
Distress inks (images and distressing)
For You Sentiment: Studio G stamps
Ribbon, Flowers & brads from my own stash.

This next card is one I made.. just because I wanted to, lol. I used the gorgeous Confirmand Matthew from Whiff of Joy. I just love how these BG Granola papers work so well together.

Card ingredients:
Papers: Basic Grey Granola
