Paper players challenge card and pinterest inspired

I had two cards to make today which were for birthdays that happened several weeks ago and I am extremely late on doing. As both the recipients are crafters I've been a little stuck but then decided to go with something from Pinterest inspiration and also to follow a sketch challenge for the other.

So first the pinterest inspired one ...

This time I used the blending foam to cate a sunset background, masking the sun circle in lovely oranges and reds and yellows. Then I stamped the tree swing silhouette and the sentiment. This I mounted on some red mirror card ... Usually reserved for Xmas cards but brought to add a different touch to this. I added some twisted organza ribbon and added it to the Kraft card.
Inspiration for this card can be found here

The next card I used the paper players sketch challenge to do a fresh and different type of card ... Very clean and simple I think!

I used a long thin card base in a bright yellow, layered red, poppy parade paper from su, and the white card. Added the red organza ribbon and a tag punched with my su fancy frame punch, and then stamped the lovely Dylusions stamps I bought in the sale a few weeks ago.

I did make other things too tonight but this is my post for tonight! Other things to be updated later!
Thanks for stopping by and looking and as usual comments are welcomed!
Happy crafting!
