THE SUN IS SHINING

The sun is shining here in the UK today - and it looks like its going to be a lovely Bank Holiday weekend - which is great as it's my birthday tomorrow. There will be a little offering for my Joy of Sets members tomorrow on my blog with a blog candy giveaway!

I've done two cards today for two different challenges.  The first one is for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge #tttc046






I chose to use the Flip Flops, Sunset and Free which I presumed allowed us to do our own thing.  The sunset was created with lots of different oranges, yellows, reds and a touch of purple.  It actually looks a lot more orange in real life - some of its colour seems to have been lost.  The little Relax Flip Flops stamp is from an old SU one called A Little Love - I knew it would come in handy one day!  The remaining images are from SU Colourful Seasons inked in Rich Razzleberry.






My other card is for the Inspired By challenge which has offered an image and allowed us to use any of the elements of that image 





I chose to go with the colours of the image and the textures on those balls.



I've used an embossing folder here from Sizzix and inked it up in Tempting Turquoise, Berry Burst and Pool Party all from SU.  The little embellishments are retired Honeycomb Embellishments. I've added a tassel made from some thread - I think this card may be on its way to a friend who loves her gardening and I can add a pack of Forget Me Not seeds in there too.
