Two cards for four challenges

I'm hoping to have multiple posts today, as I'm participating
in Papertrey Ink's Stamp-a-faire 2016 today,
but I'm starting off with two cards that I made for several challenges.

First of all, I created a card using MFT Wednesday Sketch 290:

Here's my card:

I had started scoring a piece of white cardstock for another project, but set it aside. 
I decided to trim it and stamp flowers and leaves on it using MFT Modern Blooms.

I inked up a scrap from the scored piece with Altenew Mango Smoothie
and PTI's Limeade Ice and diecut them using a banner die.
I stamped the sentiment (from PTI's KIS: Thank You) in versamark
onto a piece of Tropical Teal cardstock and heat embossed it in white.

I also have a card that I was inspired to make by this week's 
Muse Challenge #175, by Jenni Murray:

I decided to use the Colour Throwdown #402 colour combo:

Here's my card:

I applied some ink to my background with my blending tool
and layered a piece of white cardstock overtop from which I 
diecut a MFT circle die.
I stamped my flowers and leaves using MFT Flashy Florasls,
using the same colour of ink for the different stamp steps, 
but changing the intensity (I used my MISTI to stamp several times, if necessary).

I stamped my sentiment (from PTI's Spring Woods) 
in Versafine onyx black ink.

Thanks for looking!
