I will show the first one today and then the others over the next few days. Here is a sneak peak of the other two cards ;0)
Onto the card for today's post, niece #1 who turns 10 in February. I needed to mail her card to Switzerland so I had to be proactive on this one. I was up pretty early this morning so I needed some inspiration before starting (and time to let the coffee do it's thing). I hopped on over to Freshly Made Sketches and found the card sketch #118 so I decided to use this sketch. Keeping it simple at an early hour (for a Saturday!).
I didn't know what color combinations I wanted to use so I hopped next to colourQ to see if I could get some inspiration. I liked the combination in colourQ challenge #223 so I decided to use this combination.
Now, I wanted to stay with current colors and both Bravo Burgundy and Poppy Parade are not active colors at Stampin' Up! so I changed them to Raspberry Ripple and Primrose Petals.
I must confess, I was a little disappointed when I got to my stamp room because I thought I had a stamp set I was going to use for the cards but it turned out I didn't buy it yet. I guess I decided to get Starburst Sayings (from the new 2014 Occasions Catalog) with my next order. Anyway, it didn't take me long to revamp. Here is my card. I hope she enjoys it! Come back later this week to see the other cards in more detail!
