Feeling Challenged

Happy New Year!

Hope you all are enjoying the start to the new year!  We met up with good friends of ours at a water park last night- the kids had a blast! We got home and I was feeling a little challenged so I made a few cards.  The first one is from Retro Sketches.

The paper pack used on this card is Clementine and the stampset used is State of Mind (ctmh retired).  I love this combo and am pleased with the clean and simple look to the card.

The next card was a little more challenging for me.  I think it was the color combo- although I LOVE these colors together, I just could not figure out how I wanted to lay it it all out. The patterned paper is from my 6x6 minds eye Christmas collection, stampset is Just for You (ctmh), ribbon is retired from Stampin Up!

I entered this card into a few challenges:

Thanks for checking out my creations and have a great night!
