Today's National Scrapbooking Day, so I spent some time this morning making a few cards. We went to the park, and tonight I will spend some time scrapbooking. Here are the cards I made for a few challenges. The first one is for:

CAS-ual Fridays
A Day For Daisies

For this card I was to use a Day For Daisies image and add something lacy. For CAS-ual Fridays, the challenge was Tic-Tac-Toe. I chose polka dots (on her scarf), bling (there are black sparkles on the lace, and black & white. I chose the lace because I thought it went excellently with the image. The word art is from Word Art Wednesday. This is the third time I've used this particular verse. I really like it!

Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy
Stamps: digital images from A Day for Daisies and WAW
Other: black lace from my stash (not CTMH), Black Sparkles

The next card is for:

Less is More - use complimentary colors
CAS(E) this Sketch

I chose to use the colors orange and blue that are across from each other on the color wheel. It seems that when I play at Less is More, I never leave enough "white space." Well, today I hope I left enough "orange space" for them. :)

Materials used:
Cardstock: Sunset
B&Ts: Dotty for You, Pemberly
Stamps: Pun Fun
Ink: Outdoor Denim

The last card is for:

Sweet Stop Sketches
Our Creative Corner - Anything Goes

I thought my black washi tape was perfect for this card because of the colors - light pink, black, kraft, and cream. I also got to use my new floral ribbon; isn't it pretty?

Materials used:
Cardstock: Black, Kraft
Pattern paper: Rosewood from Colorbok (not CTMH)
Stamps: Card Chatter - Sympathy
Ink: VersaMark, White Daisy
Other: White Embossing Powder, Colonial White Rosette Ribbon, black washi tape from my stash (not CTMH)
