HHH, My Last for a While

So, sadly, I think this is going to be my last Hip Hop Hangover post for a while.  I actually wasn't even going to do one but since I have some cards already made, I figured I might as well.  

This first card was made for Lisa's Limelight Anniversary challenge to use the colors passion pink, summer sun, and chocolate chip.  I don't have those colors so I tried to come as close as I could with what I have.  The stamp is from Unity's Everyday Adorable.  Such a fun set!  I love it!  I used Stickles on the chick and the flower.  This actually has a lot of embellishments for me.  A prima, ribbon, dew drops, and a brad.  I also put Stickles on my brad since I refuse to pay extra for the glittery ones.  But I still think it manages to look clean and simple.  

This next card is the SCS card sketch from this week.  Again, lots more layers than I'm used to, but still looking rather clean.  Maybe I'm getting good at this.  :)  This is paper that my sweet friend and DT member Kristen sent to me.  It's Autumn Leaves.  The stamp is from Unity's March KOTM.  I added a little bit of Stickles to the flower on the sentiment and that's it!

Happy Friday everyone!  Check back tomorrow for a new EtsyInspired Challenge!

  15. They are both adorable! I'm with De - I wanted that first set SO bad! I realized when I went to bed on WEds that I'd forgotten to actually place the order. Maybe it'll be on sale again this coming week. I can hope, right?

    You are seriously rocking things lately. Whatever it is, can you send some of that mojo my way? I'm in awe, my dear!
