Another two for today

Hello bloggers, 


I am back to show you another two cards I made this afternoon. The first one is a pure case of cheating, yes, cheating!!! Want to know why? The image has not been stamped by me but is from a beautiful gift wrap that I bought some years ago. I just added some ribbon and rhinestones and here is my card... pretty, isn't it?
I am going to enter this for:
http://papertakeweekly.blogspot.com/ - anything goes
http://tuesdaythrowdown.blogspot.com/ - spring
http://everybody-art-challenge.blogspot.com/ - spring


No cheating here, I promise!!! 
Have used a Hero Arts cling stamp... stamped it twice with two different distressed inks - crushed olive, wild honey and also my apricot stamp pad. 
The sides have been distressed with crushed olive and wild honey. 
This card is for fall, right? I realized that much later... I don't know what is it with me? In summer I am drawn to fall colours and in winter hues of spring attract me... Never mind the fact that in Indonesia we don't have any seasons!!!

Happy crafting with loads of hugs for all your encouragment,

Monica

Hi Monica, I haven't visited in a while, and you have been busy. I LOVE what you've been working on! The greens and yellows are so "Springtime". Love these cards!

Naturally Me Creations said...

Both cards are just lovely! :) I love how you used the torn paper for matting in the first, and i like the "faded" look of the colouring of the second.

So....since you have no seasons...what is the weather like over there then?

Monica, both of your cards are beautiful! I love the colors and the beautiful flower image of the second card. I think it would work for summer or fall. Yellow always reminds me of warm weather.
