A couple of challenge cards

I made this cards for Gina K Designs release party challenges on SCS.

The first card is for Lee's color challenge to make a card using her favorite colors pink and brown. It is also for Rachel's cupcake inspiration challenge #13. Rachel has a new challenge each week, this is my first time doing one of her challenge, it is fun and I will be doing more. I used regal rose(SU) and pure luxury brown (GKD). The DP is from Basic Grey's Porcelain collection. The butterfly is from Take Flight and the sentiment is from Eclectic Summer Sayings and the foliage in the background is from Botanical Dreams all from Gina K Designs. I also sponged with pretty in pink and regal rose. The butterfly is colored with copics(RV21, RV23, RV25).

For the seahorse card Donna's challenge was to make a one layer card with only one type of embellishment. I have a very hard time with CAS cards I always feel the need more added to them. So on to the card, I inked the seahorse with versamark and then a spectrum pad and then I heat embossed using a hologram embossing powder. The stamps are from Eclectic Summer and Eclectic Summer Sayings both from Gina K. Designs. Thank you for stopping by.

Also I will be posting another card soon, and it is a good one.
