OWH Birthday Bash Color Challenge & A Bugs Life Cards

What a wonderful day here.  Not too hot or too cold.  The sun is shining through the soft fluffy clouds that are scattered across the brilliantly blue sky.  I just love this time of year.  Wherever you might be, I hope that God has blessed you with a beautiful and wonderful day too.

I just wanted to quickly share with you a couple more of the cards that I have created using the challenges found on the  OWH Stars & Stamps blog.  If you haven't been over there lately, please take a moment to stop on by.  As usual, there is a lot going on and I am sure you will find something that catches your fancy.

The first card I created was for the Birthday Bash Color Challenge sponsored by Paper and Such.  Stop on by and take a look.  There are a lot of really cool ideas.  Their challenge was to use kraft, red, and black or blue.  

I tend to use what is at hand.  And since the Recollections All Seasons paper pad is out I chose it.  It worked well with this challenge.  When I purchased the pad, my intent was to use it to complete some Christmas cards for the OWH organization.  I love the classic look of these papers.  

I created the sentiment using Microsoft Publisher for Mac and printed it out on vellum.  I like doing this because I can just copy, paste and then easily print out a whole sheet of sentiments to use.  Any that are left over are trimmed to size and filed away for later use.

The second challenge was A Bugs Life theme.  I spent a lot of time looking through my stash, and apparently I don't like bugs.  There was hardly one to be found.  

I did find this cute pink dragon fly that I have had in my stash for a while now.  It was on a sheet of black alphabet stickers.  Unfortunately I have no idea who they are made by as there is nothing on the page, front or back. 

The flower paper is by the Paper Patch.  A sheet of Black - small dots on white and a sheet of Black - tri dot is from Making Memories.   Again, I have had them in my stash forever.  The nice thing about acid and lignin free paper is it does it's job and does not yellow or fade.  

And last but not least, a clean white ribbon to add a little flair to the card.  I really like the way it finished the card.  

Thanks for stopping by to visit.  Have a wonderful weekend!
