365 Cards days 182 - 180

here's another load of cards that i made for the challenges over at 365 cards :D

i found some sweet sporty paper from a DCWV stack (Grade School pack), and added a fun puffy sticker from SEI along with some orangeness (ribbon, button, twine). the challenge was to use something with a ball on it. see that football and baseball? :D

(my sister took this picture, and i think she did a great job with the composition... probably gonna try this spot again :D thanks Cece!)

i couldn't just submit one card for this day's challenge. i'm not quite sure i met the criteria, either--these cards don't have any "white space" but they do meet the principle, just with a different background color.

i pulled the same riboon trim for both cards as well as the chipboard accents (from Colorbok, i think) and flower border (from K & CO).

i had a lot of fun with this card. i used October Afternoon (the red and white pattern), and then tore out a page from a book i use for cards. i cut out that sweet little vintage bird cage from a Hambly transparency--i think i'm going to savor that "paper" for as long as possible.

oooh, and don't forget--to add to the vintage "touch" i put some velvet ribbon and houndstooth paper on there. and i free-hand stamped the sentiment "fly free..." overall, this is a sweet card, don't you think?
