First challenge cards ... Indigo Blu

Here are cards the first challenge cards I have ever made:
I had 3 stamps to use a bird , leaves and a sentiment
For the first one i took a piece of Kraft card
stamped the leaves randomly (in black) on the front
I then stamped two on a piece of green patterned paper and cut them out. 
Two mats where then cut (using a spellbinders die)
the bigger one in brown and the smaller in white. 
The sentiment was stamped on to the white one
and ink around the edges using distress ink
A strip of ribbon was put done the middle,
en the sentiment added, and finally the leaves.

The second card is a a5 whte card,
I coloured with the same distress ink
The leaves were done the same way as the card above,
 as too were the mats, but this time i added a gold layer
and stamped the bird in the middle
Thanks for taking the time to read please come back again,
and see what new challenges /  creations I have made
