Embellish Background Stamp Color Challenge and Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #16

Whew... that title is a mouthful!

The first challenge I'm participating in is Embellish Magazine's Color Challenge:

The colors are white, black gray, and yellow, which is a great combo! You also need to use a background stamp.
For my card, I used a squiggly stamp from a Martha Stewart stamp set and stamped it in rows on a yellow paper using a black ink (which looks gray, but it's not!). It was fun to create my own background! Then I punched the gray paper with a Fiskars threading water punch. The sentiment is from MSE and it's from the Baby Boy stamp set, and stamped in black ink. The large flower and the small flowers are from K&Company's Wedding Collection embellishments. I stamped a circle from the same Martha Stewart stamp set and stuck it between the top flower and the bottom one (which came together) to add some more black to it.

Hope you like it! :-)
The next card is for Waltzingmouse's Sketch Challenge #16:
Here's what I came up with:

It's sort of a mix of themes, because it's bright and fun, but also a little bit "serious" because of the middle paper and the Kraft base.

The leaves and hearts papers are from Marcella by K&Company and I'm not really sure where the rub-ons (the sentiment and the star) are from, but probably K&Company, too. The birthday hat is also from K&Company, from the Confetti collection. The middle paper is from a Marcella by K&Company pad. I doodled a dashed lone and a zig-zag on some purple cardstock with a Uni-ball Signo Broad white gel pen. I just added some scrap scalloped gray paper from the previous card for some added interest!

So, I hope you enjoyed!
