More Elite Challenges

These are the other 2 cards that I completed for the Elite monthly challenges. Every month the SU group that I'm a part of has three different challenges: a stamp set (which you saw yesterday), a colour combo, and a sketch. It's not compulsory to take part, but just a way to kick start your creativity. What I really like about it is seeing what everyone comes up with. We all start within the same parameters and yet end up with completely different results....IYKWIM?

So, here's my card for the colour challenge...Wild Orchid Nights (Carol comes up with the BEST names for these)...Wild Wasabi, Orchid Opulence and Night of Navy:
I used Office Accouterments (about to retire) and the small leaf is from Lovely as a Tree. The hodgepodge hardware is Styled Silver, the Rhinestone brad is from the Pretties Kit, the 5 Petal Flower Punch and the Designer Label punch were used, and the ribbon is the long retired Light Orchid...but I love it and it goes perfectly :)

This next one for the sketch challenge and was based on a card in our current (not for long) catty. And Lauren said I never do clean and simple anymore!!!!
This one has 2 about to retire sets...Bold Butterfly and Wonderful Words. There's some White taffeta ribbon, silver brads, a large clear button and the CS is Kraft, Pixie Pink and Not Quite Navy. I really like this colour combo...which I *invented* all by myself for once ;)

There we go, a couple of fairly simple cards for a Monday! To tell the truth, I have a BAD case of Mondayitis today....or maybe it's just the lack of chocolate in the house :) So here's hoping your Monday was/is alot cheerier than mine!
