90 minute challenge & HA inspiration!

Just a few cards and a quick post this evening. I was lucky enough to have the time on Saturday morning to play along in the Hero Arts 90 minute challenge hosted by sweet Barb. It really is too much fun & I always seem to get a little frantic close to the end of the challenge and once again ended up with black ink smudge on the front of the card! A white gel pen is perfect to hide little accidents like this! Here is the creation ...

and the inside...

Ended up adding some vintage clasps from my button jar for a bit of added bling!

One other quick card to share which was inspired by Kelly Rasmussen's inspirational photo from Fresh Inspiration Friday and page 10 of the new Hero Arts 2011 catalog ... Start with a message and the card will follow.
Here is the inspiration and the link to Fresh Inspiration Friday, check it out and play along too!
