Seconds, and Thirds!

I warned you that I might make more cards for the Color Throwdown ... turns out it happened quicker than I thought it would - what is that saying about striking iron? 


There are a few Amys in blogland that admire very much... one of them is hosting this challenge - the other has a total love of all things green, and just happens to be guest designing! 

These are for you, girls! and ctd444

Lil Inkers Stitched Woodgrain Coverplate; MFT Stitched Heart Grid;
MFT Slate cardstock; PTI Woodblock Prints [discontinued?]
 
All the same players, with the addition of the MFT Big Hugs
[this card is for Tom for Father's Day - yes.  there will be one heart missing]

I thank you for sharing part of your day with me ... xx

amazing designs....what a pretty background! I just love all the stitching...makes me want to run right out and get these myself!

My heart's a-racing in seeing these two beautiful and handsome cards! Dazzling...and adore that stitching! Of course, the missing heart on Tom's makes me teary-eyed (maybe a separate little heart with wings would let him know Dad is watching over him...). Love 'em!
Hugs~c

You nailed it with these 2 beauties, Michele! I love how you played with the color palette and the stitched woodgrain pattern...oh, my! Not to mention the Woodgrain Prints which are so striking! I also love how you paired the hearts and die cut sentiment...Two really great cards and the 2nd one is perfect for Tom! I'm inspired, my friend :)

This colour combo totally agrees with you and I'm so in love with that woodgrain die thingy, it makes the card look like a quilt!!!
