Week of May 21-27 (Thursday)
Art Impressions has some wonderful images of old guys and old gal. But they also have this sweet baby with a balloon. Their challenge this week is to create a card with lots of white space. So… here ‘tis!  (The paper actually has a tiny bit of pastel color and texture. Years ago I added a few drops of food color to a bottle of bubbles then blew them across white card stock. The results? Small pale circles, blotches and drips. 
Also entered into another challenge for CAS (Clean & Simple)= lots of white space!

Art Impressions Challenge-White Space 
Cute Card Thursday Challenge-#479 CAS 

My second card is made with a wonderful sentiment from Beccys Place digital set called Iris Garden.  The photo of the flower bouquet is cut from an old calendar, framed by a cutout in yellow vellum (not sure if you can see the details, but it has yellow curlicues). Finished with gold photo corners. The frame and flowers allows entry into two other challenges.

  1. Two wonderful cards Kathy, well done!
    I remember those years when we were all playing around with food colouring, bubbles, shaving foam, pouncers and whatever paints we could find... I ended up with lots of interesting paper too.
    I like how you kept lots of white space on your first card, it really helps show off the image. The second card is so pretty and feminine, the flowers are just beautiful. Great idea to recycle the calendar page.

  2. Beautifully framed card, the vellum gives a lovely look! Thanks for playing along with the Power and Spark Challenge this month!

  3. Beautiful cards and how adorable is the baby. So cute and absolutely precious! And a great take on the challenge! Thanks so so much for joining us at the Ai challenge! :)

  4. Lovely flower card thanks for joining us on Artistic Inspirations, Louise DT x
