365 Cards Days 95, 96 & 98

I have three more cards to share for 365 Cards challenges. I really thought I was going to finish the whole week of challenges, but there two days I am stumped on. For Day 95 - Wacky Colors Wednesday: "Let's try BLUE, PINK, and ORANGE - try to stick with those colors as much as possible (that's the challenge part)."

The patterned paper is from a huge DCWV slab I got from my MIL for Christmas a few years back. It was one of the best gifts ever. The colors in this piece were perfect for the challenge.

For Day 96 - Fun With Fabric: "Any piece of fabric will do, except for fabric ribbon, buttons, or flowers. Of course you can add those things to your card, but they won't count as the fabric." I was excited when I saw this challenge because I have a huge fabric stash as my other favorite hobby is sewing.
I love this piece of fabric I got at a supply swap from Mari who makes wonderful handmade bags. I stamped the "Happy Birthday" on white fabric and put a little batting under it, so it looks like a little pillow. I iron fusible interfacing to the back of my fabrics so it's as easy as working with paper.

And finally, for Day 98 - It's an Anniversary!: "My husband and I are celebrating 11 years of wedded bliss today, so I want to see anniversary cards....with a catch (of course). Make the dominant color white -- what!? Oh yes, it can be done - it just requires simplicity." So, Happy Anniversary to Pam and her husband.

Thanks for looking!
