A Mixed media and a CAS card

Hello everyone, it is my second post of the day, if you are looking for my ATSM DT post, please click here.

We are off to a clumsy start of the day both weather wise and at home front too. Its dark and drizzling, and cold outside, to match it up, my teenager son gets injured again while playing for his school Soccer team yesterday, they were versing another local school. Poor boy had his fair share of injuries this year. Just came back from the hospital, a clear X-ray, no fracture or dislocation, but cannot put his foot down and walk, so the doctor gave him crutches to help with that. He looks fine, another experience to add to our memories :D

Ok enough of my stories, now to the card. the first one up is an interesting card, I chose a white base and a white front to go on. I stitched some beads to create a border on the front panel, I had used a pale blue thread to stitch the white beads.
Then added a vellum layer cut in a circle, and I heat embossed the sentiment in white. Then I stamped a tiny home , and did some sponging in blue, and added a green burlap and some more sponging in brown. Finished off with layering the vellum on the sponged ans stamped scene.

A close up at the sponged scene, and the burlap lawn.

The Mixed Media Card Challenge
 This is a very simple looking mixed media card, but I had used many different mediums to make this card such as, beads, stitching, burlap, embossing, sponging and stamping. I hope it qualifies.
I made it on a home theme, as per the current challenge requirements.

The second card, I made it as a one layer card. This sentiment is one of my most used sentiments for birthday cards, and most of the time, I do it with either kites, or balloons, but all the cards are very different in their own way.
I sponged the kite bit differently this time by masking with post it notes, and used a pigment ink to do this.
Then I added some clouds with a super light hand, barely visible..with blue pigment ink.

Then the star sequins to finish off.
 Hope you like this simple card.

 The moment I saw the cue, I knew that I would be using this birthday sentiment. 

Design defined: Your focal image doesn't have to be in the center always.
