Three challenges in one..or two cards.

Hello, Hope you are having a great weekend.  I got some landscaping done before the rain moved in then a little baking this afternoon.  Stamping for tonight.  I started with the Playdate Cafe #128 Orange and Hot Pink challenge.  I used the CAS-Friday #49
challenge layout for the layout of the card.  Then finally I used the Papertrey MIM#62 challenge for the "Step-it-Up" challenge.
So this first card is a single layer with just stamping(die-cut window) and not layers.  The only extra was the little bit of bling in the star.  I always buy clear rhinestones and hit them with permanent markers to create the colors I need. To "step it up" I used a white base card and diecut the Framed Out #1 and #2 sets in Orange Zest and Raspberry Fizz inks.  The little flower was the heart border die cut from Raspberry Fizz felt and then I used just the rounded top portion to roll up and make the flower.  Leaves were some pins I found at JoAnn Fabrics and colored them with perm marker again.

This next pic just shows the layers.  Some of the diecuts
 I used two layers of pop dots with to give extra height.

Well that's all for now.  Thanks so much for stopping by
