Card Challenges

I've been down for the last few days with a bug so have been busy blowing my nose and making cards. I have two cards in this post made for various challenges. The first is a card that I made using a lovely stamp by Penny Black which I colored with distress inks and mounted on various dps and embossed the background using a cuttlebug embossing folder. It qualifies for two challenges:
PB Allsorts Challenge
C4C Sketch
Here is a close up of the image:

You can see the little "water" droplets that I made using "Crackle Accents". Have a closer look...

And here is the second card, made for Penny Black Saturday Challenge and also
Card Patterns.

I also colored this cute kitty with distress inks, used a scalloped nestability to mount it as well as 3D adhesive foam pads to raise the image up a bit. The papers are all from my scrap stash, and machine stitched. A close up below:

I'm actually not crazy about this card, but its done and I suppose I will find some use for it. Maybe its not bright enough for my taste, I don't know.Oh well, they can't always come out as you want them to, can they?
