Two Cards, Finally!!! (F4A65, ODBDSLC61, TSC0520)

I'm back! I've had muscle spasms all week and have slept a lot. Making up for lost time. Boy, those muscle spasms can get you down!
The Free 4 All Challenge is called Opposites Attract, and we are to make cards with colors that are opposites on a color wheel. Blue and orange are my opposites. This is also for the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge which was to use plaid or gingham. I used plaid from the Pawsitively Prints DSP (retired). The boat is a single stamp from SU! called "Sail Away" and the quote is from the ODBD "Eternity" set. I used Pacific Point and Tangerine Tango card stocks and inks. I added orange eyelets (Brights, Retired) and Pacific Point Ribbon. Everything is from Stampin' Up! except for the Nesties and the quote.
This is another card for the Free 4 All Challenge because I used Red and Green. The main reason for this card, though, is the Twisted Sistahs Challenge which was to make a card with a red or light red (pink) flower on it and one other embellishment besides ribbon. The embossed flowers are done with the new Impressions Folder from Stampin' Up! called "Flower Garden". The stamped, colored and cut out flowers are from "Fast & Fabulous", a retired hostess set which I just love. The leaves are just cut out free hand. The ribbon is Real Red Satin, the sentiment is from "So Happy for You" (SAB), and I added that little watering can brad for my other embellishment. Everything here except for the brad came from Stampin' Up! Thanks for stopping by!!

Oh Carrol Ann!! Stunning cards!! I just love your card with the gingham/plaid and the scene you created with the boat. Your second card really pops with all the white and the gorgeous embossing. Thanks for joining the ODBD Shining the Light challenge this week!!

Such a beautiful composition of the bold image alongside the dry pressure embossed image on white. Wow!
