The Outlawz Card Challenge Entries

Good Evening Chickees!

It's been a suuuuper busy week for me and I apologize profusely for not commenting on blogs as much as I should and.. I haven't had time to check e-mail either!  Hope to get caught up on that tomorrow at work!  (It's okay.. I'm the boss!)

The first card is for the Sunday CAS Challenge, CAS0724,  at The Outlawz!  The colours we were to use were orange and bright yellow...well... I sure found those in my stash somehow!  The card is super simple to the point it could be boring but!  I tried!
The ribbon is from WalMart and the stamp from Stampin' Up!  The embossing was done with the CuttleBug.  The only ink I used was for the sentiment and it was butterscotch Adirondack Dye Ink.
The second card is going into The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge, CC0726.  This week we are to use the colours Blue, Yellow and White.  Well.. sometimes I think out of the box, but I'm way out in left field with this one!  hehe! 
I used yellow gold smooth finished paper instead of sunshine yellow.  The tree is from Penny Black (Fantasy) and was stamped in VersaMark and embossed in white.  The sentiment was done the same way and the maker unknown.  I used alcohol inks for the background in three different blues.  The brads were the last four gold ones I have.  The sheer gold ribbon is also from WalMart.
My camera is not doing this card justice at all.  For once I'm happy with what I made and I can't show it off properly!  Eeerg!  You'll just have to take my word for it!
Thanks for looking and don't forget to check out The Outlawz!

Both of these cards are terrific Sheree. Wonderful embossing on the first card and cute bow. That is a beautiful tree image on the second card.
