Mom's First Challenges JCI46 and 2S4Y31

So I decided that it was time mom started doing some of these challenges with me. We sat down last night and made some really great cards. She did an excellent job and agreed that the challenge...color or layout gave her a direction. Way to go momma!

Well first we turned to Stacey's Jewelry Color Inspiration #46 for a really great color selection. On her blog it said that this will be the last jewelry color challenge because she is updating her blog...so I really hope that it isn't the last one ever. I love these!





Next we looked through several layouts and mom picked 2 Sketches for You #31. It was simple and provided a pretty open window for creating!
Here it is...Ta dah! Mom used the Square Scallop punch as a border for her flowers. She used the Sweet Stems set and I love how she just left the outline of each flower, without coloring them in. She also used the new Modern Label punch and punched it up with a background created by the Oval Scallop and a 3/4" Circle punch! I'm so proud of her!
