Two new cards!

I have just got back from a week away with my daughters school on a trip to the Purbeck Hills with 73 children, we had a fabulous time and the weather was kind to us.  I needed to get into my craft room and have some relaxing time making a couple of cards.

This first one used the "Kaleidoscope Background" stamp from Simon Says which I have stamped and embossed in Silver and then coloured with Zig Brush Markers. I added the sentiment stamped onto velum and also a few pearls.  I am pleased with the selective colouring as it changes the look of the image.

I shall add this card to both the SSS Flickr Group challenge which is "Colouring" and the SSS Wednesday challenge "Wedding/Anniversary".

For my second card I used an image from Sugar Pea designs that I coloured and die cut, I then made it into a shaker using My Favourite Things Shaker die.  The sentiment is from Simon Says.

I shall add this to the Die Cut Divas challenge "Animals or Pets"

Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
