A Couple Challenge Cards

There were a bunch of fun challenges around blogland last week - and speak of challenges I'd love to have you hop over and play along with my Inspiration Challenge on Stamping Around!!  There's still time and there's a great prize!   But I also played along with the Paint By Numbers challenge on Nichole's blog last week. Since my user name everywhere is "jmasse" (how original is that?!) this was my color palette to use:

I used Scattered Showers to make my card - the color palette was actually fun!  It's difficult to see in the photo but I stamped the cloud image from Scattered Showers Additions on the white cardstock using Versamark and embossed it using Clear embossing powder.  I love how it's "there" but not glaring at you! 

The rest of the card is pretty self-explanatory. 

Cardstock: Terra Cotta Tile, White, Orange Zest (Papertrey Ink)
Patterned Paper; Bitty Dot (Papertrey Ink)
Stamps: Scattered Showers, Scattered Showers Addition (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Versamark (Tsukineko), Orange Zest, Raspberry Fizz, Ripe Avocado (Papertrey Ink)
Accessories: Raspberry Fizz ribbon, Twine, Button (Papertrey Ink), Clear embossing powder (SU!), foam adhesive,
I also made a quick card for a CAS (clean and simple) challenge on SCS.   The inspiration card was just beautiful so I took the layout and made this birthday card using Everyday Button Bits.  The colors make me happy so it seemed perfect for a birthday card!

Cardstock: White (Papertrey Ink)
Patterned Paper: We R Memory Keepers
Stamps: Everyday Button Bits (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Black (Memento)
Accessories: Vintage Buttons, Raspberry Fizz Twill (Papertrey Ink), Copic marker, rhinestone
