Mini VSN Part 1

It's the Mini Virtual Stamp Night over on SCS this weekend. I did almost forget it was on! These are my cards for the first 2 challenges.

Challenge #1 was to use a chick or an egg on your card. I combined this one with Waltzing Mouse's Sketch Challenge #84 and Play Date Café's Challenge #118. Here's the colour inspiration for Play Date Café. This was such a gorgeous combo and worked so well for an Easter card. (Bit early for Easter really, but might as well make a start on all those cards I need!).


And here's my card for it.

Challenge #2 was to use flourishes. I just had to use my new Fancy Flourishes dies which arrive in my PTI goodie box this week along with this gorgeous Rosie Posie set. At first I wasn't overly fussed by this set - it is just another flower set and I have tons of those, but after seeing so many beautiful cards all around the blogging world, I just had to succumb to its pulling power and I am SO glad I did - it's just fab! I also used the colours from ColourQ's Challenge #123 and here is their colour inspiration picture.


And here's my card for it.

And that's all for this post folks! The rest of my Mini VSN cards can be found here if you want a quick peek.
