SplitCoastStampers Color Challenge - Two cards

I'm sharing two cards with you again today.  (I better get some more made - I'm running out!)  They were both made for the Color Challenge on SplitCoastStampers - Melon Mambo and Soft Suede.

For this first one, I used my new scoring pattern, but added to it by doing the "radiating" scoring in both directions.  I sponged Soft Suede on the scoring.  I matted with Soft Suede, also.  The flowers are from the wedding section at Michael's and I colored them with a Melon Mambo marker.  The sentiment is from Repeat Impressions.  I added pearls for the flower centers.
For this second one, I used a new Martha Stewart punch I got on clearance at Michael's.  I scored a couple lines under it.  The sentiment stamp is from Hero Arts.  I inked it up with Soft Suede and then used my Melon Mambo marker to color the words.  I added scoring around the sentiment, also, and embossed the top section with my Swiss Dots folder.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
