Two new (to me) Sunday Challenges for fun!

Hiya...........it's been a miserable cold Sunday here in the country, with rain on and off.  The boss and I did get a walk in though.....between showers! Take a look at this beautiful rainbow I snapped over the river.



I have a card to share......... but please be kind it was so hard to get a photo.  Black cards are a challenge and the dull day didn't help.......roll on summer.....I hope we get one this year!

I made this card for two challenges. Jay Gee's Nook Challenge # 21 which was a beautiful photo inspirational challenge:



I picked the little bottom left hand corner and the lace  from the ties for inspiration.



The first photo was taken inside ......horrible colour cast....sorry!


Second photo taken outside .....a little better but not much......I miss my 50mm lens...boo hoo!

This is also my card for this week's CAS-UAL Friday Challenge #62


My black background has a scored bottom section with the tag popped up on foam dots.

The sentiment and heart come from AnnaBelle Stamps lovely "Love Birds" 6" x 4" set.

Hi sue! what pretty creations! I love the embossing and colors. So beautiful and elegant! Hope you are well my friend. I know what you mean about the weather. We're like a yo-yo right now. Back and forth with rain and heat/humidity.

This is really pretty Sue... the score lines on the background add so much detail and interest and I love that piece of lace. Thanks so much for joining us at Jay Gee's :)

Great card, Sue -- sometimes the photos just don't come out the way we'd like. However, the pic of the rainbow can't be beat!

You sure nailed the inspiration photo. I get the feeling of old time Hollywood. Any signs of that pot of gold?
