Sunday's Stamped Backgrounds

Just a couple of cards I made today with stamped backgrounds, as opposed to using some of my huge hoard of patterned papers!

This first one is for Viva La Verve's Sketch #4 for January - a CAS sketch which I turned into a non CAS card! You know I do don't CAS! This one is also for SUO Challenge #37 to use your favourites from the Stampin' Up mini catalogue or main catalogue. My mini goodies will be arriving here tomorrow, but I did get a couple of freebie sets a little while ago for participating in different events and this one is a cute set called Charming. I used the flowery circle and tulip type flower to make some background paper and although the tulips are not quite right, I do love how it came out. I also used the colours from CR84FN47 to use red, pink and light blue. Here's their colour swatch...


And here's my card for it.

And my next card is for Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge #82 and Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #108 to be inspired by the photo below. I used the colours yellow, blue, green and cream from the photo and the idea of flowers, although the flowers aren't the same type, but nevermind. I'm sure you can see the inspiration in there! Anyway here's the inspiration photo...

And here's my card for it...

And that's all from me for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!
