Two challenges together !

I've just realised that both of the challenges I'd made cards for finish tomorrow, so I've put them on one post ! The first card is for the Truly Scrumptious challenge which is a sketch and also 'Good enought to eat'. I've just realised, while writing this post, that I've missed off the flowery detail...hope I'm forgiven ! The second card is for the Crafty Creations which is to use one colour in as many shades as you like.

So, this card was made using a Craft UK stamp which I've stamped with black Memento then shaded with Pro Markers. I've then cut it out with Labels 3 Nestabilities and sponged some Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint Distress inks around the edge before removing the die. Then I rubbed some more ink around the edge to leave the white border.

The background papers are My Minds Eye and for the horizontal pieces I've stamped the flowers from a Rubber Stamp Tapestry set called Yumys Garden. I've added Glossy Accents to the heart and dotted some stickles on the 'hundreds and thousands' on the cake. The buttons are from my stash and I've stitched around the edge.

I started the below card by making the background with Weathered Wood and Faded Jeans Distress Inks then I've stamped the flower, which is from the Bloomin' with Beauty Stampin' Up set as is the bee, with Faded Jeans.

I printed the sentiment on my PC then cut it out with Labels 13 and used the same Rubber Stamp Tapestry set to add the flowers.

The ribbon wasn't quite the right colour so I rubbed it against the Faded Jeans Distress Ink.

Well I can honestly say these are the last of my Mother's Day cards ! The stall went quite well today, so we were both pleased. We need to start planning for Father's Day now !
