The second card also qualifies for the Friday Mash Up FM41 Thank You with DSP Challenge along with the Stamping 411 SSC238 Sketch Challenge and the Hand Stamped Sentiments HSS100RP Pleats and Ruffles Theme Challenge (hopefully crimped paper qualifies as a “ruffle”).

Thank You- Two Cards, One Color Challenge and More!
This week’s ColourQCQC19 Challenge colors are bright, bold and fun, so much so that I decided to create two different cards utilizing the CQC119 colors along with a few other challenges! I hope that you will take the time to visit their blogs and leave some comment “love” for their Design Teams- they work so hard at keeping us inspired and motivated each week!
In addition to the color challenge, the first card uses the sketch from this week’s StampingQueens SQSC21 Challenge along with the Friday Mash Up FM41 Challenge (Thank You card with DSP).
To create this card:
Use the Big Shot™ with the Petals-A-Plenty Textured Impressions™Embossing Folder and emboss a piece of Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink and Pumpkin Pie DSP.
Also with the Big Shot™, cut a doily from the Paper Doily Sizzlit Die from Whisper White cardstock and hand trim the doily in half (this one was the second half from a previous project).
Punch a few flowers from the Melon Mambo, Whisper White and Pretty in Pink embossed cardstock using the Boho Blossom Punch and one flower from Melon Mambo with the Blossom Punch.
Use the Flirtatious DSP and create the tag and lower layer of the background. Assemble the card layers- add the 5/8” Basic Gray Satin Ribbon bow, sentiment tags and Rhinestones to finish off the card.
Stamp Sets: Tiny Tags
Ink: Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Gray, Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie DSP, Flirtatious DSP

To create this card:
Use Stampin’ Write Markers in Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Basic Gray to color the floral spray image from Fresh Vintage and stamp the image onto Whisper White cardstock. Punch out with the 2 ½” Circle Punch and mount onto a paper doily from the Flirtatious DSP pack.
Punch the border of Whisper White and Pumpkin Pie DSP with the Eyelet Border Punch and crimp both pieces with the Crimper Tool.
Assemble the layers- add the ribbon, sentiment, bow and pearl to finish off the card.
Stamp Sets: Fresh Vintage, Short and Sweet
Ink: Stampin’ Write Markers in Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Gray and Pretty in Pink

These colors did seem a bit daunting to me at first but I had fun creating the cards. In my opinion, the second card is more my “style” but the first card will be perfect for a friend of mine who loves pink and flowers :-)
Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed these cards. If you have the time, please leave me a comment to let me know which one you like the best!
Have a wonderful week and take the time to relax and possibly create a project! Most of all, have a great time and God Bless!
