Creating some Cards

It's been a while since I made any cards and I saw a couple of challenges I wanted to  enter.

I saw this challenge at Poppy Stamps blog and I have quite a few of their dies.  
You needed to play tic tac toe.  I chose the diagonal with flower, yellow and twine.

Here is what I created:
I started with the chicken fence back ground using some Tim Holtz distress ink- Mustard yellow and TCW stencil
I sprayed the sunflower diecut with some gold Colorshine
A little twine and then I thought it needed a little pop of colour and I added the orange butterfly.
3 little pearls from Teresa Collins

Will also link up with Simon Says Stamp challenge where you need to add some shimmer.

My second card is for the Memory Box challenge #13 where you needed to water color. 
I used a water pen and again some Tim Holtz distress ink- mustard yellow, persimmons, mowed lawn and corduroy.
The sunflower die is from paper trey ink
My memory box die is the celebrate

and........ Here it is!

Hope you enjoy my creations from today!
