Everything But The Kitchen Sink Challenge & Embellish Ribbon Color Challenge

Hey everybody! Well I have some exciting new to share with you. My good blog friend Kelley, has offered to take some cards to the Children's Hospital in Nashville too. So I sent her 230 of the cards I collected, so that means that we will have reached 3 Children's Hospitals on Valentines Day! How amazing is that? Thank you so much Kelley and to all of ya'll for helping! :)

Ok, I wanted to show you a card that I made for Chance for Valentines Day. I started working on it last week, when I was working on the EBTKS Challenge projects, using a box top. But I didn't get it done in time to post it on the Challenge release day, so I sat down today and finished it. Then I noticed that one of the ladies' entries in the challenge has the same idea! I guess great mind's think alike! :)

It's a pretty simple card, so I let the focus be in the inside. I also noticed that it was almost the same colors as the Embellish Ribbon Color Challenge too. I changed the color pink that I was using and went with the lighter pink.

Here was the box tops I used for Chances card.

Here is the outside.Here is the inside. I stamped on the picture, the words- FOREVER... This is a picture Autumn took of us at the park a couple of weeks ago.
I also needed a card for my Mom's Birthday. My brother and sister's and I and all of our families are bringing my Mom out to dinner tomorrow night, so I thought I would use the Embellish colors for her card. Here is her Birthday card. I don't know if you can tell, but I didn't clean my leaf stamp very good from the last time I used it and when I tried to use Versamark, it had a little bit of color in it. I really like the effect though! It kind of matches the blue. :)
There is still a couple of days left for the EBTKS Challenge, and there is a great prize up for grabs and the winner will be a guest designer too! :) So come by the EBTKS blog and check out the details and play along with us!
