Some cards

My first card is for the Card Patterns sketch. I was able to use some coordinating Heidi Grace papers I got on clearance at Joanns awhile ago. It was difficult to get everything even, but I think the imperfections are what make a homemade card more treasured.

My second card is for the color challenge at the Play Date Cafe. The colors are purple, lilac, and lime green. This worked out perfectly because my niece whose birthday is tomorrow loves these colors!

Thanks for stopping by!
