Not one, but two challenges accomplished!

Ok, so today is supposed to eScape day - as declared by Stampin' Up!  I have tried to stay away from all the electronics, but I have done so much in my craft room I just had to share it all with everyone. I posted most of the things I made over at SplitCoastStampers (see post below) and I wanted to share a few on here as well. So here we go!

I was able to accomplish two challenges today.  Boy - it was lots of work, but the end results, I think, turned out really good.  As always, I like to do Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration, this is #13 to be exact.  Although I have not participated in all of them I find them quite fun to do.

Colors for this time around are:
Purely Pomegrante, Regal Rose, River Rock, Wild Wasabi and Whisper White

What a great color combo!

What's the second you ask?  Julie over at Paper Pleasing Ideas has this new thing she is doing with card sketches.  She is flipping them (go to this link to check out the details) and when I saw the first post she did, I thought that one day I would try it - the day has come and here is my stab at it.

Paper: Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi, River Rock, 
Regal Rose and Whisper White
Ink: Wild Wasabi
Accessories: Small Oval Punch, 3/4 inch Circle Punch, Corner Rounder Punch, 3-D Glue Dots, Snaps, a little BLING, Crop-A-Dile, Dimensionals and adhesive

Had lots of fun today with the Challenges.  Thanks ladies!  What a great way to spend my birthday - by the way - did I mention it is my BIRTHDAY TODAY!!
Yea me!

I hope you enjoy the cards!
