365 Cards - Days 16 & 20

I've made a ton of cards this week, but with sales in mind, and not challenges.  But I was inspired by two of 365 Cards' challenges this week:

Day 16 - Abstract Art:   I actually made this DP myself smooshing black and blue alcohol ink between two sheets of photo paper.  It came out completely different than I thought it would.  Darker.  A lot darker... but I liked the look - very 'space' like with nebulas of purple and blue.  That experiment inspired a science themed card with a great quote from Albert Einstein.

Day 20 - Super Sketchy Sunday:  I'm always inspired by SSS.  :D  Yay Pam!!  I bought this DP today for 20 cents in the Michaels clearance bin.  So cute... the flowers on one side, and wee adorable animals on the other.

Hope you had a great weekend.  Darn, they go by fast!!
