365 Cards & Card Positioning Systems

I've got three more cards to show off--it was a very productive naptime today. For 365 Cards Day 109 - Color Scheme the challenge is to make a feminine card using these colors:

I also used CPS Card Sketch 20:

The patterned paper is some KI Memories I bought at least a year ago. I think it's supposed to be Thanksgiving paper, but it had all the colors I needed so I used it anyway.

For 365 Cards Day 111 - Say it with Stripes: "your challenge is to create a card with Bold Colors and Stripes." I used more of my favorite American Crafts papers to make this:

And finally for 365 Cards Day 112 - Everlasting Love: "Create a wedding card, and use the word "Love" in the sentiment."

I really like the way this one turned out. It's simple, but sometimes simple is nice. The metal "Love" is a clearance bargain from Michael's, and the patterned paper is Martha Stewart (also on clearance).

I may have time tonight to finish up my argyle card and complete the week of 365 Card challenges. On a side note, my 2&1/2 year old son is making Father's Day cards for Daddy and Papa. (He loves gluing scraps of patterned paper to cardstock to make his cards.) I had to laugh when he sat down, looked at his paper, and said "Now what?" I feel the same way sometimes. Thanks for looking!
