365 Cards Day 198 and 199

I am really having fun with the challenges at 365 Cards.  Day 198 was a "Word Wednesday"  this week's word was playful!  Here is the card I created using Webster's Pages papers and October Afternoon letters accented with Glossy Accents.  I love the bright colors and the balloons!

Day 199 was Earth Tones only.  I made this card by using a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 kraft cardstock background that I rounded the corners on.  Four patterned papers were cut 1/4 inch smaller and had corners rounded.  Before I adhered the last layer, I copies a tiny photo of my grandma on a cream notebook paper and trimmed it down, wrapped the card four times with hemp from Lawn Fawn and added the sentiment and paper rose from Wild Orchid.  This photo was taken in the early 1920's at the beach at Blackpool.  I really love it and think it makes a great romantic card image!

Have a wonderful week!
