You go Girl and Your Day

I hope you had a happy Easter. I went to my girlfriend Helen's house. We both cooked so it was fun. She made grilled veggies, chicken, steak, and garlic bread all on the grill. I made my famous cheesy potatoes and apple salad with homemade pineapple topping. It was a good day and good food. No pictures of the food though.

I made these two cards for two challenges on Splitcoast Stampers. One was the TLC321 Same but Different Challenge, and the other was the CAS116 Artist's Rule of 3 Challenge. In the Same but different challenge, the cards had to have the same supplies, but there could be sutble differences. The same things were the papers, and basic layout, sentiment shape, black accessories and black ink. The differences are: The layout of the patterned paper, one had ribbon, the other didn't, one had no layers under the sentiment, the other did, one had flat-back black pearls, the other had flat-back black rhinestones.

Both were relatively simple cards. Doesn't mean it took me any less time. I've said it before...I struggle with CAS (clean and simple with a lot of empty or white space) cards. The shape for the sentiment is from the Cricut, but they were hand cut. I had a shape sitting there so used it on the cards.

The You go Girl card is for a coworker who is leaving the company to work at another place. The Your Day card is for our Admin for Admin's Day.

Update: Ashley, the coworker who is leaving the company, the You go Girl card, LOVED it. She said, "Did someone make this card for me? It's so neat." She is crafty so she appreciated it. 

 Supply list: Bazzill, The Paper Studio, Recollections, G Studio stamps ($1 at Michaels), Cricut shape, Recollections flat-back pearls, Zaz flat-back rhinestones, Ribbon, SU Melon Mambo, SU Green Galore.
