Wee Memories April Blog Hop!

Hello!  So happy that Saturday is here again!  And with it brings another great Scrappy Saturday Challenge!  This week we are doing our monthly blog hop and I am so happy that you are here!  You should have arrived here from our guest Designer this month, Nerina!  If you get lost or find a broken connection please check back with the Wee Memories blog!  

This week our sponsor is Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker! 

  We have a really fun color inspiration challenge this week!  Just find some color inspiration from the challenge badge, easy!


We were provided with some paper from Nikki Sivis and I made two cards with it! 



For the first card I embossed the flower by Hero Arts in chestnut embossing powder.  I distressed the edges and stamped a thank you sentiment from HA too.  I finished it with some bright yellow twine by the Twinery!  For the second card I let the patterned paper stand out.  I distressed all edges with a TH distresser and vintage photo ink.  I stamped another thank you sentiment from HA and added some ribbon and a button!

I hope you enjoyed my cards!  Thank you so much for stopping by today and I very much appreciate your comments!  Your next stop is ANN!  This challenge is open until Friday April 7th  11:59 pst!  Hope you have a great weekend!

I love these soft, muted colors. They are so beautiful! I like how you created 2 cards with the same palette, but they are so different from each other.
