Taylored Expressions August Blast from the Past Blog Hop

I am very excited to be part of the TE Blog Hop this month!  I didn't get to participate last month.  The theme this month is "Collectors Anonymous"...time to use up those precious items we collect!  I have chosen RIBBON as my collection item.  It is a really simple card, but I am pleased with the results.  Thanks for looking:

Items used:  All paper from Taylored Expressions "July Kit".  The green and pink ribbon are also from the July Kit.  The rose teal ribbon is from my STASH...LOVE THIS!  Sentiment came from Taylored Expressions "It's in the Bag" stamp set.  Stamped with Teal Stazon.

Now it is time to take a look at the rest of the Blog Hop folks samples - ENJOY!

2 Cards for Color Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers 1 for CAS-ual Fridays!

I was not very excited about these colors until I finished the first card, then I decided to make another.  I was trying to use too much patterned paper.  These colors called for a "simple" card.  Let me know what you think:

This first card is for 2 challenges:
