Combined Challenge Cards

Hi all, I've been busy combining challenges again!
I have 2 cards to show you today, both fulfilling 2 challenges each. First up is the Colour Q Challenge and Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch
I seriously struggled with this card, I went into it having no idea what stamps I was going to use, or even what theme I wanted. It seemed a really odd colour combo to me, so I think that's part of the reason I struggled so significantly. 
The second card fulfils the Clean & Simple Sketch, and the Stamping 411 Colour Challenge
I actually wasn't going to use the Upsy Daisy stamp set for this one, but it looked so good in the sketch, that I decided to anyway. These colours are completely out of my comfort zone, I don't usually reach for my Subtles Collection, so this was a little odd for me.
Anyway, Thanks for looking
Jess

I like the silver embossing on your snowflake card. The color combo on the second card is so soft and pretty.

I think both these cards are lovely. I have a thing for snowflakes - so I think the first is my favourite.

Hi again, Jess! Nice to see you at the ColourQ challenge again. Sometimes a color combo gives us trouble. At first you are really challenged, but then they get easier and learn so much from them. I hope you had fun with this card, it is lovely. Thanks again for playing!
