Muse Card Challenge #127 & Tag You're It Challenge #27

Hello there, blog friends ~
I have two cards to share with you today...The first is for the current challenge at Muse, with inspiration from Joan Bardee. Here is her card:



Here is my card:



I used PTI Rustic Wreath, a flower from Just Smile set and the bird is from Birds & Blooms. The sentiment is from Mama Elephant Love from Above. I finished the card with MFT Diagonal Stitched Rectangles.

My second card is for this week's challenge at Tag You're It, and for this challenge, Anja Curvers provided inspiration for us! Here is her card:

  And, here is my card:




For my card, I blended distress inks on the SSS stencil Deco Design and die cut the NBUS Coffee Cup from SSS, and Anytime Tags from Lil' Inkers. The sentiment is from SSS You're So Sweet stamp set and the twine is from Pretty Pink Posh. I layered everything with dimensional adhesive and placed it on a stitched card base.

I just realized that both of my cards also qualify for Virginia's View Challenge for the theme 'All Things Embellished', so I would like to enter the first card to her challenge, as well.  



So, that's it for me...Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great week,

Love both of these cards. Your Muse card is so light and airy. Love that open wreath. And I adore the beautiful ink blending and light stenciling on your second card.

Love the coffee card - so smart to let the background tag peek through the heart in the coffee cup!

What a gorgeous soft and delicate take on Joan's card, Barb ... those gold hearts are fabulous with the sweet bloom and lovely leaf sprigs! Fantastic sponged ombré on your tag ... the black is so striking with it! Hugs, Anita :)
