Tonight and This Morning

I made this card last night. I chose my colors to participate in the Play Date Cafe's inspirational challenge:
On the inside I stamped, "Thank You".

I used Judy's sketch from The Sugar Bowl blog:

I colored in my Gorjuss Girl stamped image with Prismacolor pencils and blended with Gamsol. I added Stickles to her cute little wings and paper pieced her dress with paper from The Angel Company. All of the patterned paper used on this card are from the same pack of paper I got from The Angel Company. I machine stitched on all of the patterned paper pieces of paper and the white piece behind the little Gorjuss angel.

I made this cute card this morning. Over at Cute Card Thursday they're having a Primary Colours (red, blue, and yellow) challenge. I don't think I'd ever made a card with the focal colors being the primary colors, so this was a fun challenge to participate in! Then over at Dutch Dare Card Challenges the challenge is to "Felt Like It" - add felt somewhere on the card. My friend, Melanie had just mentioned recently how she had been making felt circles with Nestabilities, so I thought... I'm going to try to make some felt flowers with my Sizzix die cutter. It worked really well! I lined the red flower with Stickles, sewed the flowers together, and sewed on the button after tying the ribbon on the button. I used the Whiff of Joy stamp that I colored it in with Prismacolor pencils and blended with Gamsol. The patterned paper is from The Angel Company, the solid colors are from JoAnn Fabric & Crafts. I used the Whiff of Joy blog sketch:

What do you think? Did they turn out all right? I sure enjoyed making them! :) Thanks for looking!
