CC216, CCEEC Happy Birthday and SC226, CC216 and 2RedBananas Upsy Daisy

Happy Thursday everyone!!!

Here are two cards I made for some of the SCS Challenges.

This first card is for the CC216 - using Basic Black, Real Red and Old Olive!!! The Sketch is from the fabulous CCEE ladies - you can see it right here!!!

I used the beautiful Thoughts & Prayers Set. I know it's more a Sympathy Set, but I think it's way too pretty just to use it for a sad occasion, so I turned it into a *Happy Birthday* card!!! The sentiment is from the A Little Birthday Cheer Set.

I colored straight onto my flower image using my SU Markers Real Red and Old Olive. I dressed the flowers up with some small Silver Pearls (avail. Michael's). The Real Red panels were embossed with the CB folder - D'vine Swirl. At last I added the 5/8" Old Olive Ribbon and the larger Silver Pearls on the side.

*********************************************************

I combined this card for the CC216, SC226 and the 2RedBananas Challenge - wearing Stripes.

The DP I used for this occasion is from the Summer Picnic Collection. As you can tell I use the Sketch vertical to show off the striped DP!!! BTW - check out the awesome prize you can win for playing along in the 2RedBananas Challenge!!!

The Set is Upsy Daisy and I inked it all in Basic Black. The sentiment is from the new Great Friend Set that is featured in the Occasions Mini Catalog (Page 5).

To finish it all off I added some Silver Brads. Voila!!!
