Elegant Lines and a few challenges!

Remember yesterday when I said I stamped a few things but just wasn't thrilled with the outcome?  Well, here they are.  I know, I don't have to share everything, but they aren't horrible... just not thrilling me either.  I think I would really like the first one without the So Saffron ribbon- maybe with a Baja Ribbon instead, but since the Diva Color challenge for today included Baja Breeze, So Saffron and Regal Rose.  Plus, I am all out of Baja ribbon until my new order arrives in a few days!  I colored in the parts of the embossed areas using an Aqua Painter and ink from my inkpad lids.
This was my first take on this challenge and it's just a little too sweet and pastel for my liking I guess.  That's why I changed the sentiment from "Because I Care" to a baby card- more fitting I guess.  

My sketch for these two cards is from the Clean & Simple blog post HERE.  I hope you'll join the Divas today for our color challenge.  Be sure to hop on over to the blog to see what everyone came up with you! 

Hope you had a little bit of sunshine in your life today!
