Blushing Paris & Courage

I made this card for two challenges - the sketch challenge over at Split Coast and this week's Color Throwdown.

I stamped a collage of images over a stamped wire grid background - all my stamps are from Rubbernecker  I popped up the layered mat stacks on foam tape and added some Tiny Twinkles for a little glitter!

My second card was made for this weeks Split Coast Color Challenge - Night of Navy, Bashful Blue and Crumb Cake.

My card is almost a no layer card (just one layer color framing!) I stamped the corner garden in Night of Navy ink on a white panel. Then I masked a circle in the top corner and sponged the blue sky with Tumbled Glass. I removed the mask and sponged over the ground and the moon with Frayed Burlap - I wanted it to be a kind of stormy night to go with the sentiment.  I layered the image to a panel of Night of Navy and then onto a white card. I added pale blue rhinestones to a few flower centers. Then I stamped the sentiment directly on the card.  The corner garden and sentiment are from  Rubbernecker

I'll be back on Friday with my WMS Blog Party card -  hope you're joining in and that you'll stop by to see my card!
