Still More HYCCT Cards

Here's another mostly pink group of HYCCT cards.

For HYCCT 1215A, we were challenged to make peaceful pink cards.  I used a lovely sketch by Anya from Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge for my layout.

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse Stamps:  "Fancy Phrases"
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
Papers:  white, pink
Other:  SU! Textured Impressions "Vintage Wallpaper" embossing folder, Spellbinders Shapeabilities Kaleidoscope Pendant die, Hero Arts Art Flowers and pearls
Card size:  A2

HYCCT1218 challenged us to be inspired by vital signs such as heart beat and temperature.  I was stumped on this one for a little while, but then I remembered I had this quilt stamp that had warmth in it, so that's what I decided to use.  This card is an odd size, 4" x 6" but the proportions weren't right when I tried to use an A2 base.  It fits in a photo card envelope (with some room to spare).

Stamps:  Whipper Snapper Designs "Homespun Quilt"
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black and Memento Tuxedo Black
Papers:  white, pink
Other:  Copics, Spellbinders Shapeabilities "Fancy Tags 2"
Size:  4" x 6"

 We were challenged to be inspired by a musical for HYCCT1212.  This one also had me stumped for a bit, but then I realized I had the perfect set of stamps to use for "Climb Every Mountain" from "The Sound of Music."  I used Copics and Prismacolor pencils to color the image.  The sky is a very pale blue and doesn't show up in the picture very well.

Stamps:  Our Daily Bread Designs "Keep Climbing" image and sentiment
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Versafine Onyx Black, Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Papers:  white, dps from K & Co.
Other:  Nestabilities circle and petite scalloped circle die, pewter brads, Copics, Prismacolor pencils, odorless mineral spirits, sponge
Card size:  A2

Finally, for HYCCT1215B, we were challenged to sparkle and use lots of glitter and gems.  The dp has glitter stripes on it, and I added as many gems as I could!  I used Julee's awesome Mojo Monday #261 sketch for my layout.

Stamps:  Verve "Birthday Bash"
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
Papers:  white, dp from DCWV "The Sorbet Stack"
Other:  Hero Arts Art Flowers and gems, rhinestone flourish from Recollections, Nestabilities circle and petite scalloped circle dies, MS leaf punch
Card size:  A2

Thanks for stopping by!

Edited to add:  Thank you to Our Daily Bread Designs for selecting my Climb Every Mountain inspired card as the customer card of the day back on November 7, 2012.  I really appreciate the recognition, and I love using Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments.  Thank you so much!
It was a completely unexpected blessing that really brightened my day during a stressful stretch of exams.
