Flourishes Challenges and Our Daily Bread Day Three

Good Monday morning, fellow stampers ! Hope you had a great weekend ! Mine was busy but good .
Today I am posting two cards to complete three challenges I wanted to play. I love a good challenge and these have been so much fun . Flourishes has a new blog look and they are celebrating with daily challenges which end today so check them out if you are looking for a couple good ones. My first card is for Flourishes Day 5 which is to use pink and green . Now...someone kick me ! I LOVVVVE pink and green ... together ! In clothes, on paper, in home decor , in gardens ... well, you get the idea ! Lilly Pulitzer made famous this color combo years ago in her resort wear collection and it's still a hit today . Now my card isn't quite what I visualized but I did use Flourishes Sweet Pea set and the color combo. Don't you love that bright , Springy pop of color ?

My next card is for Flourishes Day 4 which is to use " sparkle" and for Our Daily Bread Anniversary Challenge Day 3 challenge which is to use silver or gold . We have my nephews wedding this weekend and the color and simplicity is for them . I have used the I Love Roses set from Flourishes and embossed the base in silver. Silver trim, a button and some gems round it off.

So what do you think ? I have a couple sketches I want to try today so we will see if I can squeeze some time in the stamp room .
Thanks for stopping by ... I so appreciate your comments and I love visiting your blogs ! Hugs !
