Card challenges

I never used to be much of a card maker, but I have been inspired to get busy by participating in some challenges this week.  Usually I make cards when I need one, but I have been trying to build up my collection of cards on hand - it is great to have something handmade when I need one!

The first is for the Mojo Monday Challenge #334.  First the sketch:
And now the card, which I made at 3.5 x 5.5 inches, using paper from Balloon Ride and Ariana:

I love how easy it is to make paper flowers with my Cricut!

Next up is the Atlantic Hearts Challenge sketch:
And my take on the sketch, again using Balloon Ride and Ariana:

Challenges and Sketches are a great way to inspire you to get crafty - especially if your mojo is on vacation!  I would love to see what you can come up with!!  Give it a try!

Happy Day everyone!
