a couple of challenges with one card...and a baby shower invite

Hello, friends:}


As promised, I have some Nina Brackett goodness to share today:}
 
My first card was created for Nina's sketch challenge [ends April 10], SPCC#42 color challenge, and Moxie Fab's Picking Up the Pieces challenge. I love this digital cake image by Nina Brackett (Squigglefly), as well as the sentiment. Super pretty! As soon as I saw the color combo over at SPCC, I knew I had to make a wedding card! And then as I was paper piecing the cake, I knew it was good for the Moxie Fab challenge! I love love love when I can make a card that fits several challenges:} I know it is hard to see--but the eggplant card stock is metallic. The top and bottom of the cake has been embossed with polka dots, and the bow and the cake's middle layer was spritzed with shimmer mist (perfect pearls). I know these pics are not the greatest--so if anyone has suggestions for photographing metallic paper or white embossed designs...please leave a comment!! 


My second card is the baby shower invite for my friend, Court. I had to block out some information on the card, but you get the idea. All images used are Nina Brackett's Squigglefly digital images. ACK--love love love these birds! I paper pieced them as well. The branch I used my watercolor pencils for a soft effect. Love these invites. Simple. I actually got the idea of using birds and making a CAS invite from the picture on the right. **NOTE:: When I first started looking at designs, I didn't write down the names or blogs of where I saw these. I'm getting better at writing these things down! There is hope:}
Well...I'm off for a meeting and tutoring...and more and more! Thanks so much for stopping by! I've got the cutest card to share for tomorrow for another Play Date Cafe challenge!! Super fun! Love when we visit:}
Until next time~
Love, Sav
