Never Give Up

I am going to double up on a few posts as I don't want my cards to get lost in the mix before I mail them off.

Last year I enjoyed participating in the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges over at SCS and am hoping to keep up with it again this year.

My card above was for the challenge issued by cakath with the theme HOPE AND COURAGE.  I thought this sentiment was perfect and I wanted to just use a simple image so colored these flowers.  

I used the current Sweet Sunday Sketch for this card as well and some of my all time favorite papers from My Mind's Eye.

Card details:
Stamps: Budding Blossoms and Borderline from Verve Stamps
Cardstock: Dark Chocolate, Coral Necklace, Very Vanilla and My Mind's Eye Lost & Found-Blush
Inks: Chocolate Chip, copics
Embellishments: pewter brads

My second card is holiday themed using one of my favorite sketch challenge sites, Retro Sketches.  I've been slacking in participating in these lately but was inspired this weekend when stamping.

I'm not a very good mixer of patterned paper but thought this looked good.  I think I would have layered it if I had more room on my card, but wanted to make a traditional Arielle card- square.  I love her style!

This card was also created for the Moxie Fab Challenge to make a Holiday card.

Card details:
Stamps: Sea-Sons Greetings from Our Craft Lounge
Cardstock: Rustic , Cherry Cobbler, Kraft Like a Rockstar Ivory, Handmade Holiday by Simple Stories
Inks: Dish All the Dirt Brown, Chocolate Chip, copics
Embellishments: Kaiser Craft pearls, twine, Rustic Wooden Vintage Buttons
