Colorful cards...

If you are looking for my CAS(E) this Sketch ! #41- Guest Designer post, please click here...

Today, I am back with two more cards, my first card is inspired by CASology week 57- PICNIC and ATCAS #19 - SUMMER. I think summer and picnic go hand in hand so combined these two challenges. The picnic reminds me of a bright and clear blue sky and lots of greenery. So, I incorporated this in my card...
To make this I used the sun rays mask that I created on a scratch paper for my previous post. I did some masking and inking to create sky and  some greenscape. I then added a picnic umbrella coz my picnics can never happen without an umbrella ;) ,actually I am allergic to sun rays :( 

The challenges are -

Now to my second card, this card is a little different from my usual creations coz I added a some 3D elements to my card. I love experimenting :), its so much fun. So, this one was inspired by Festive Friday #15 which says - make a holiday project with children's theme, I was also inspired by the colors there :), I made it 3D because Make My Monday challenges us to create a card with some dimension. And finally, The Sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #99  is apt for this one :) So here's my card...
To make this I first cut out 9 ovals from my Nestabilities oval die, I colored each with colors on Festive Friday, I then scored them vertically in the center and stuck 3 ovals together to create a colorful ornament. I then cut 3 scalloped circles on my card base and then hung these ornaments by sticking them from behind. Finally, I hand drew the dashed flourish and added sequins. I am sure kids would love such a card :D

The challenges are -

2. Make My Monday  - ADD SOME DIMENSION
