A Couple Challenges

I had a whole afternoon in my stamping area, so after I cleaned my desk (which took a few minutes about an hour) and made a couple of DT cards, I decided to play with some of the new things that I got over Christmas.

First a card for this week's Mojo Monday challenge...

I watercolored my new Zinnia Bouquet from Taylored Expressions with Distress Markers, and used a new Verve set for the sentiment.

Then I made a card for Jen's Deconstructed Sketch...

This one uses itty bitty sun, cloud, and fox dies from Taylored Expressions as well as flags and a border from MFT and a hill die from The Cat's Pajamas.  I didn't even stamp on the card at all!  I used micro brads for the fox's nose and eyes instead of the tiny pieces that were included, just to add some extra dimension.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Oh I love these cards, those Zinnias ( I think that is what they are called) are beautiful love the colours +++
I love the tucked up corner and two banners peeking out on your second card

like both the zinnia and fox cards - colours are great!
(I usually take over an hour)
