Two cards from me today

Betcha all thought you had escaped me today - no such luck!! I'm running late as I've been busy with my Whiff of Joy project of the month and got totally carried away with it (as you do), but managed to also get a couple of cards done today as well whilst waiting for the paint to dry (that's as much of a clue as you're going to get till next week!!)

pink-gem-frog
My first card is for two challenges - Papertake Weekly has a fab sketch, love working with Dawny P's sketches so had to get this one under the belt. I used a bit of metal (no surprises there then!) so this card also qualifies for My Time To Craft. I received my new DT kit from Janet at Pink Gem and had to ink this cute little frog up straight away.
pink-gem-frog-1
A close up look at the gold gems and the dragonfly (that was silver so had to be coloured with a Krylon gold pen cos silver didn't look right with the colours). No inside pic (forgot to take one and it's too dark now)
pink-gem-frog-2
Recipe:
Stamp - Pink Gem Designs Frog Prince and sentiment is from a Scrappy Cat Birthday set
Distress ink and H2O's
Papers: Basic Grey Ambrosia
Tools: Martha Stewart Scallop Dot border punch, Stampin Up tab punch, Cuttlebug bubbles folder
Embellies: Gold gems, Dragonfly charm, Anita's ribbon

xXx---xXx---xXx---xXx---xXx

woj-rr-pink-green-1
My second card is for this weeks Lili of the Valley challenge - three of my Just Magnolia teamies are on the DT there and I am ashamed to say this is my first time entering their challenges (beetroot now). The sketch is a fab one, nice and simple, not too many layers and makes for such a quick and easy card.
woj-rr-pink-green-2
I had to sneak the beautiful roses in again from Wild Orchid Crafts - I love love love them!! I gave them a mist with Gold Radiant Rain shimmer mist, unfortunately the pic does not show the shimmer. Hope you can see the depth the roses give to the card. Did I say I LOVE them lol!!
woj-rr-pink-green-3
The inside, plain and simple
woj-rr-pink-green-4

Recipe:
Stamps: Whiff of Joy Kneeling Willow and sentiment from the Swirls & Sentiments collection
Colouring mediums: Distress ink and H2O's
Papers: Raspberry Road
Tools: Spellbinders Labels One and Ribbon Tags, Martha Stewart Branch punch, Martha Stewart ZigZag punch
Embellies: Roses, Prima Hydrangeas, crystal gems, Hobbycraft Ribbon
