Inspiration & Silver New Year


Good Saturday Morning!
I'm glad it's the weekend but unfortunately I'm not feeling the greatest. I hope to be back to my normal self by Monday.....also hoping that you all are off to a great weekend!!

The first card is for the Ways to Use It Challenge on SCS. We had to add silver to our cards---I believe I accomplished that very well! My second card is for the Inspiration Challenge on SCS. I chose this cake for my inspiration or should I say the colors. I tried to make a climbing rose but it didn't work out....oh well.

I'm going to make some more cards and hopefully I'll like those more. Have a great rest of the weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!!

  1. I'm still cleaning my craft room and hope to be back into the challenges on Monday.

    I love the silver one! The black really sets it off and I love the design.

    The other card is great too. As a matter of fact, I love all your cards. Have a great weekend. I'll be back Monday!

    Your Birthday Wishes card is so pretty. I really need to dust off my baroque motifs set. Thanks for the inspiration.
