Spring colours

For this card, I used the layout from CAS Colours and Sketch's #267 and the colours from Color Throwdown's #488. I like the result enough that it's shortlisted for my daughter's birthday card!
The card:

Made using:
Papermill Freehand Lines stencil
Simon Says Stamp Artsy Flower Parts stamps and dies
Stampin' Up Whisper White heavy cardstock, ink (Cucumber Crush, Pool Party, So Saffron, Basic Black) and Candy Dots

Daisy Delight

I've had a break from making cards - and then a break from making them in response to challenges - but here I am again. There's not a whole lot of stamping on this card, but as I was responding to Retro Rubber's latest challenge (#84, a lovely spring image), the stamps are all from at least a year ago - the daisy from Grateful Bunch (2016 - 2017 catalogue), the sentiment from Crazy about You (2016 - 2017) and the grass from Sheltering Trees (2015-2016).
I used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch - #267 - for the layout. I sponged some clouds to begin, and then added the die cut ones for impact.
The card:

Made using:
Stampin' Up ink: (Soft Sky, Cucumber Crush, Lost Lagoon, Rose Red); paper (Shimmery White, Lost Lagoon, Soft Sky), stamps (Grateful Bunch, Crazy about You and  Sheltering Trees, watercolour pencils (M.elon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry) sparkly dot thingies (forgotten their name!) and dies (Up and Away)
