VSN - Part 1

Tonight begins VSN, and I'm so excited!  The first card that decided to show up is for the Silver Lining challenge to make an inspiring card with silver.  I tried to make a silver ring around the ribbon, but the pink ink just made the silver look lighter pink, but it shimmers, and I like the way it looked anyway.  Wasn't quite what I was going for, but kept it!  I outlined the ribbon in silver Gelly Roll pen too.  I decided to keep it simple and let the ribbon speak for itself.
Stamp Sets: Ribbon of Hope
Ink: Regal Rose, VersaMagic Platinum

This next little cutie was for The Look & Feel of Clouds challenge to use cotton of some kind. The challenge talked about comfy and cozy, and to me, NOTHING is more comfy than my flannel pajamas, so I used flannel; I'm sure there's some cotton in there somewhere.  I used the scalloped oval punch to simulate my cloud.  I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch for this card.
