MY Favorite Things' First Cards and Challenges

Hey there! my dear friends, readers, and visitors! It's Super Bowl Sunday night as I write this post. We had a massive blizzard here at the Midwest today, so I've been home all day long doing one of the things I like to do the most: crafting! 
I own quite a few Dienamics dies, Ink pads, (which are my favorites) from My Favorite things, but for for some reason I did'd have any of their stamps, last week I ordered a really cute one, (BB Sweet birthday wishes). The other one at the top of my wish list is out of the stock right now, so I have to wait. (BB you have my heart)
I've been a follower of the MFT blog for a long time and finally I decided to entered their challenges: Color Challenge No. 14 and the Sketch Challenge No. 213
Being challenged is one of my favorite ways of crafting, I love the pressure of good challenge, such as time, or colors, that's how I got into blogging (10 Minute Craft Dash).
I had heart broken over my card for the sketch challenge, but I just decided to get over it, and go on with the card! (see my Instagram for details on that LOL)
It took me a long time to make this card (sketch challenge), I tried different colors of mats, and I came with all of that! That is the only stamp with images and sentiments that I own from MFT the other one is a stripped background. So my options were limited. The card for the color challenge was much quicker to make
I hope you like these cards and enjoy them, supplies bellow.
