A few challenge cards...

Hi all!
Today, I celebrated my birthday, I spent the day in Newcastle, and Stockton, near the beach. We had fish and chips and had a general relaxing time. Then, when we got home, my best friend and house mate decided he was going to bake me a cake. So, while he was doing that, I got to go paper craft... He understands me so well :-P
I made two cards to fulfil four challenges the first card was made using the 2 Sketches 4 You Sketch and Curtain Call Colour Challenge
And here is my card, I used stamps that were an inspired purchase from my bloggy buddy Annmaree
The second card I've created is for the Mojo Monday Sketch, and the Colour Q Challenge. I love the simplicity of this card, the colours look so regal. I was actually half tempted to straighten the image....
I decided not to put an oval sentiment, but added a small "Joy" sentiment on the inside. Also, I just realised I was missing the Mustard... Darn!
Don't forget blog candy closes in just under a week! So, get in quick!
