Neutrals Cream & Black & A Bit of Bling

A couple of quick cards today for a couple of quick challenges.  I don't often combine challenges (I think that's kind of cheating), but this week two of my favorites are walking hand in hand down the same road.

OLW 81 over at Jennifer Styles blog asks for cream & black with bling.   LIM 57 over at the Less is More blog asks for Neutral color.  Both ask for a clean and simple design.  Well, I think these fit the bill.  All cardstock is cream, with images and sentiment in black ink.

Thanks for peeking!

Carol, Great cards. I love the image you used in your third card. Funny, I had the same Agapanthus stamp out along with the Agapanthus stamp from Great Impresstions. Ended up using the Great Imp. stamp.
