Flowers & Birdies

Hi there!

I've got a few cards to share for several challenges today.  First up is for the Inky Paws Tropical Theme challenge at Newton's Nook using the sketch from CAS Colours & Sketches.  I'm also going to enter it in the CAS on Friday Exotic challenge.  I love this NN flower die and there isn't a flower that says "tropical" better than a hibiscus!  It came together quite quickly so I made it with a couple of different background colours and different sentiments.  

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Watermelon Wonder, So Saffron, Lucky Limeade, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Smile sentiment from Dog Days of Summer) Newton's Nook, (Thank you from Many Thanks) Altenew, (Happy birthday) Hero Arts
Inks:  (VersaMark) Tsukeniko
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Dies:  (Hibiscus) Newton's Nook, (Wonky Stitched Rectangle) My Favourite Things
Glitter:  (Clear Wink of Stella) Zig
Gems:  Recollections

Next up is a card using the Reverse Confetti Sketch For You to Try and the colours from The Colour Throwdown.  I paper pieced the adorable RC birdies and the patterned paper stripe is also RC.  I ended up making two but added extra stripes on the second card.  

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Raspberry Ripple, Daffodil Delight, Gumboil Green) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (Pattern Play 6x6) Reverse Confetti
Stamps:  (All from The Tweet Life) Reverse Confetti
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Glitter:  (Clear Wink of Stella) Zig
Gems:  Recollections
