Keesh's Challenge

I love looking at Keesh's work she creates such lovely cards/scrap pages plus her ideas are always so... terrific. This week I thought I would give her challenge a go (won't compare to her work of course - but I'll give it a go). The colours were perfect to create a 'boy' card this week. Hope you like!

Supplies: cardstock-ruby red, basic grey, baja breeze, whisper white; ink - ruby red, basic grey, whisper white; stamp - ahoy matey; punches - designer label, 1/2 & 1 1/4 circles; ribbon & paper piercer. (Stampin' Up)

Leah's Challenge

Another great blog I like to get insperation from is Leah's - she too does some terrific work. I absouletly loved the colours she chose for this month's challenge, because they are so nice and BRIGHT. I thought I would create a card for my niece Chelsea' b'day (it's not until August), but she's such a bright/bubbly girl - just like these colours.

Supplies: cardstock - pink passion, whisper white, lovely lilac, only orange; ink - pink passion, lovely lilac, only orange, gable green; punches - scallop circle, 1/2 + 1 3/8 + 1 1/4 circles, stamp - riveting; ribbon; paper piercer (Stampin' Up) stamp - small gebera (Kaiserstamp)
