Inkspirations, Stamping 411 and Clean & Simple Challenges

I've been busy in the craft room again! Doing more challenges. The first challenge is a sketch challenge over at Stamping 411, and it also fulfils the Inkspirations Colour Challenge.
I followed the lead of some of the Inkspirations Design Team, and avoided making a Christmas Card, although these are some of my favourite Christmas colours... 
I used three different stamp sets on this one.... Growing Green, Silhouette Sentiments and Upsy Daisy. The Designer Series Paper is not yet available, but is coming soon! It took me a while to figure out what to put in that box, but decided on the daisies in the end. 
The second card I've made is for my nephew Sam's 1st birthday! The time has passed so quickly! This card uses the Clean and Simple Fall to Layout 116
I used the Party this Way stamp set, paired with some My Minds Eye patterned paper, the inks I have used are Baja Breeze, So Saffron and Pumpkin Pie, which match almost perfectly with the colours in the paper! I really like how this card came together, everything worked on it, which was nice!
Don't forget my blog candy!
