My Favorite Things - You Could Be a Card Design Superstar Contest

Hi All!

Today I want to share with you my entries for the My Favorite Things - You Could Be a Card Design Superstar Contest - 2016!

I almost missed the boat on this one, as I just heard about the contest last week! Wish I had more time to come up with another card (three is the maximum you can enter). But I guess two will have to do!
Well... what do you think of my first card?

How cute is this little guy!? 
I love how using a clear acetate on the bottom of the card makes it really look like a speech bubble ;)

I will link a list of the supplies I used below this post, but here is a list of the specific Spectrum Noir Markers I used (FS3, FS6, TN3, TN5, IG1 and the Blender).

Here is what the inside looks like.

I used adhesive black foam for my letters to add some texture and dimension.

It's clean, it's simple, it's fun... and that's what I was going for. I'm pretty happy with it since I feel like I'm still a newbie at this whole card making craft! Plus, it was easy enough that I'm going to make a few more to have on hand for birthday's that I have coming up soon!

And onto my second card...
In contrast to the first card this one is a lot darker and actually a little gloomy.

 Here is a close up of the glitter fun foam clouds and the distressed sky.

It gets a bit lighter and hopeful on the inside of the card. 

I think this is the perfect card this card to brighten up someone's day!

Hope you've enjoyed my entries to My Favorite Things - You Could Be a Card Design Superstar Contest.  Wish me luck, and if anyone one out there still has time today you should enter as well or at least take a peek at some of the entries (they are AMAZING) and very inspirational!

Thanks for stopping by!
