Good evening!  I'm slowly catching up on some of my card making and things at home are finally starting to slow down.  I seem to have lost my mojo for a few days, but tonight I'm here with two cards for you and I hope you like them.

I wanted to make a card for this week's clean and simple challenge on splitcoast stampers.  I thought this week's challenge sounds like a fun one!  It's a color challenge using dark blue and white.  I decided to use a stamp set that I haven't used before.  This image is from a retired SU set called Kindred Spirits.

I stamped my image and then ran it through my big shot machine using my square lattice embossing folder.  I only embossed the top 3/4 portion of my card stock.  I wanted to leave a little bit at the bottom that wasn't embossed so that I was able to add my sentiment.

Just below my embossed area I stamped my sentiment and then just below my sentiment I added two score lines using my simply score tool.  The bottom of my midnight muse card stock was cut using the finishing touches framelits.  And since I wanted to keep my card simple I decided to just add a few basic pearls for my embellishment.

This is a card I made a few weeks ago for a splitcoast clean and simple challenge and that week's challenge was a sketch challenge.  I was debating whether or not I liked the way my card turned out and if I should post it.  Yep, not every card I create makes it onto my blog, but anyway..... here you go :) 

This was easy enough to make.  It was just a matter of coloring my stamp using my SU markers and then stamping my sentiment.

My mojo has gone walkabout too. Every card I've made this week hasn't been up to scratch IMHO! But yours are really lovely, I particularly love the thanksgiving one, the angle you've tilted the big flower thing is perfection!

Both of these are gorgeous. I love the first one with the embossing, just elegant and your second one, the colors are beautiful.
