Bunches of Thanks and Roses

Hi Stampers!    I have two cards to share today -  both from Split Coast Challenges...

My first card was made for the Featured Stamper challenge.  Congratulations to Lana (Lunar Lana) on being chosen the first Featured Stamper for 2012! I had not been in her gallery before and enjoyed checking out all her wonderful creations!

Having a similar bunny stamp - I chose to case her Bunny Ride card.  I used a different bunny, different colors, added a ribbon (to cover an ink smudge!) and made mine a Thank You card.  I loved all the fun colors and patterns on Lana's card - I used strips of patterned paper rather than quilted squares.

And this card was made for the color challenge - Hostess Betty gave us a lovely combination to work with - Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade and Basic Grey - and the dessert option was to use something new.

Well, I've gotten several new things recently and used them here - 3D flowers die from Sizzix, Madera Corner die and small pinwheel posie from Memory Box, and Polka Dots embossing folder from Life Style Crafts!

I used Liquid Pearls on the foliage and added rhinestones to the centers of the flowers.  I didn't stamp a sentiment because I'm not sure what I will use this card for yet -  it will definitely have to be hand delivered!

Wow, Julie - I love both cards. Your coloring on your bunny is fantastic, and your flower card - with all of it's dimension should be framed for the wall. Amazing.
