Not sure about this one

Hi!

Have you ever created a card that you just were not sure about. Whether it be the stamps, the layout or the overall look of the card?

That's me on this card.
It was one of my samples for last week's sketch on SCS. Although I had a lot of comments and was favourited several times I just wasn't feeling it.
I love colour and that might be the issues.
Stamps: Lighthouse
Paper: Cream, Black, DSP
Ink: Black, Barely Banana
Moving onto this card. My second sample for the same sketch.

Paper: Real Red, White, Barely Banana, DSP

Happy Birthday Flowers

Happy Hello!

Spring and warm temperatures are keeping us busy outside these days. Having a new puppy keeps us hopping too....lol

I've got a couple of cards to share today that I created last week for some challenges.

This first one was the SCS #640 sketch. I found this Splendid Sunflower stamp and die from MFT in a tote on my craft room floor. No idea how it ended up there but I was pleasantly surprised to find it! 
Stamps: Splendid Sunflower
Paper: White, Early Espresso, Barely Banana
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Early Espresso
Accessories: MFT Sunflower Die, MFT Tag die, Sewing, Grommet, Twine, Dimensionals

This next card was created for the Freshly Made Sketch #283 and the Colour Throwdown #438.
I believe this stamp was a free one from PTI years ago called Botanical Blooms.
Stamps: PTI
Paper: White 
Ink: Cameo Coral, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, Black
Accessories: Felt, MFT fence die, MFT Banner dies, Mat pack and paper piercer, Dimensionals
