Clean & Simple Class

Hi there!  W'ere half way through the week and I hope it is going well.  I'm taking the Clean & Simple Card Making Class with such talented instructors so I thought I pop in and show you my cards for the first day of class.  This first day was sketch inspiration.  Three sketches were provided and I decided to make cards for two of them. Ultra CAS with Verve stamps for the flowers and Hero Arts for the sentiment.  The color inspiration came from the ColourQ Challenge this week.
The second one you can see I rearranged a bit.  I masked off the edges and used spray mist to create the sky.  It bled a touch on the left, but I'm still pleased with the result. 
What do you think?  This is only the second time I've taken an on-line crafting class.  I'm really enjoying it!  And...I'll be back tomorrow with cards for days 2 and 3. 

PS Please excuse the photography...I'm fighting with my camera :)

  4. Did you really mist that background on the 2nd card? Looks great! I was nervous to try that technique, but yours looks so even! Great card! The first one is also a cool take on that sketch. Your cards always make me want to try a very similar card!!
