Wedding Anniversary and a Mermaid!

So here are two cards I made this weekend. These cards have been so much fun to make!!
This Wedding Anniversary card was made using TGF Digi Stamp KissyKissy, printed on SU Whisper White SU cardstock. I used the SU Manhattan Flower Stampin Up set for the background and Basic Black Cardstock for the card. Colors used to color the bride and groom and flowers was Baja Breeze and Pale Plum. I also used some Bermuda Bay and Perfect Plum to add more color. Close to Cocoa was the color I blended with for the hair. The Happy Anniversary stamp was from Michaels.

All in all I am super happy with this card. It opens from the middle for a trifold with quotes on the two sides. I am going to check later today to make sure I have the right colors named.

Here is the other card I made. This one was for the W.O.W. Challenge on The Greeting Farm's website. I loved this design and combination so much I made 7 cards of this design. I'll take pix of them later, those ones are for sale for $4 each.

This card was made using some scraps I had left of water designed paper, SU Kraft color paper and SU Creamy Caramel. The mermaid's hair was hand hut out of Bermuda Bay cardstock and SU Pale Plum was used for the seashell top and starfish. I used the crimper for the bottom colored paper and the Sand Stamps from the Safire Designs (that is no longer in business :() To top it off, I used the liquid pearls for the pearls in her hair. Gosh this was a lot of fun! Enjoy!
