ATS Challenge... Anything Goes

I had some spare time today to throw together a last minute entry to the Anything Goes Challenge over at the All That Scraps Wedsday challenge blog.

Since I printed the digital image rather large, the card itself had to be kept quite simple.

I tried doing a yellow halo effect around the image, were the light from the sparklers would hit, but I don't really like the way that it turned out... ah well.

Simon Says... Black & White with a Splash of Colour

Another card made for the weekly challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Blog. This week the challenge was to make a mostly black and white card, with just a little splash of colour, so I grabbed this adorable Paper Smooches image and made this card.

I happen to buy a box of odd sized envelopes by mistake the other day, so the card that I made for this challenge is 3 3/8 x 6 1/4 to fit the envelope.

And, just for fun, I recorded myself making the card. Scroll down for the video.
