This week there are several challenges that have my mind turning... The Mojo Monday Sketch #231 along with the Ribbon Reel Challenge of Newsprint inspired me to create two card.
My first card started from newsprint pattern paper from the Bo Bunny pad of paper:
The newsprint paper led me to create a masculine card with a travel theme. I used kraft glassine on the bottom half embossed with an embossing folder. I mixed in Artistic Outpost images from Route 66 and Diesel Punk to create my tags and banner. I turned the layout into a pocket card with two tags.
After that I wanted to create a feminine card using the same idea of tags in a pocket:
I also played along with the ColourQ #127 challenge this week for my colors. The velvet flower trim is a beautiful coral and came up a little dark in the photo. I used the Memory Box stamps for the background and the die is a Memory Box butterfly. The verse is from Verses Rubber Stamps.
