Mini VSN for Hope

Tonight is the Mini VSN over on SCS, and so far, all the challenges have lined up with the challenges I still need to do for the Hope You Can Cling To challenges for the month of October.  I've got two-fer's for ya!
The first card is for Birthdays are a Piece of Cake, which is to create a birthday a birthday card and use paper piecing.  I also used Inspired by Cloud 9, which was to take inspiration from one of the patterned papers that are posted + add something sparkly.  I chose the candy cane paper and took the red and green motif and my sparkle was Candy Cane Stickles, of course.
Stamp Sets: Pun Fun
Ink: Wild Wasabi (inked the edges of the label), Momento Tuxedo Black
Copics: R39 (for bow and balloon)
Paper: Regal Rose, Confetti Cream, Phoebe DSP by Basic Gray
Accessories: Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon, Candy Cane Stickles
Punches: None
Big Shot:
Labels 9 Nestabilities
Challenges Used: HYCCT12, NOV10VSNMINI1

The next card was an interesting one... The HYCCT challenge was to do a non-square card, and the VSN challenge was to use the spotlighting technique.  I'd never actually done the spotlight... guess it turned out ok.
Stamp Sets: Because I Care
Ink: Crumb Cake
Copics: R22, R24, R27, R46

Large Circle Nestabilities

The last card (for now) is for the Ribbon, Ribbon, Ribbon challenge, as well as the Calming Pastels challenge.  I think the ribbon piece is pretty self-explanatory, but for the pastels, I chose to watercolor with the pastels on watercolor paper using a stencil.  I like how this looks, but think I'll use watercolor crayons next time.
