Random Act Of Kindness and #GDP081

Welcome back crafters :)

Today's blog is about Random Acts Of Kindness.
I have made this set of cards for the group that I am part of on FB called Random Act Of Kindness Card Group. If you love the feeling that giving gives you, then you will adore this!
 When I joined the R.A.K group I was asked to add my address to an International Address file. Then each month we decide whether we are participating and if so, add our names to the list in each monthly event. We then choose Random names from the list, find the corresponding address in the file and send out Happy Mail...Who doesn't love receiving something nice in their mail box, especially a hand made card from the other side of the world! I received one from the Netherlands only the other day! That was so special.
If you love sending out smiles (cards) then you can ask to join the group too...Click HERE

These cards are also my entry for Global Design Project #GDP081
The design Team have for us this week a colour challenge.
I do enjoy a good colour challenge :)

The colours are Night of Navy and Whisper White
with a free colour choice :)

I made 5 cards almost identical except for the FREE colour choice. 
Each card has a different colour. 
I am really struggling to choose just one card to enter, so I decided to enter them all! 
Whoops lol
The card colours above are as follows.
Back row: left Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Delightful Dijon.
Front row: Bermuda Bay and Real Red. 

Individual cards with Front and Inside Views

Doesn't that single colour stand out against the white and Navy!!!. 
It reminds me a little of the 'In The Lines' DSP

For the focal images I used the stamp set 'Helping Me Grow' stamped onto a Whisper White an oval stitched shape. Then this backed with a layer of Night of Navy cut with the largest scalloped framelit from the Layering Ovals framelits set.

The background stamp I used is the splash from the 'Touches Of Texture' stamp set. 
It gives a spritzed effect with the colour. 

I have used Night of Navy plus the same colour as the focals for each card.

All cards except the one below have a Night of Navy card base. 
Each card sentiment is from the 'Special Reason' stamp set (wowser I am using this set soooo much!) and has been heat embossed in Whisper White onto Night of Navy.

This card above has a Whisper White card base, because I placed the Whisper White layer on to the Night of Navy crooked and had to trim it! The joys of creating hahaha
But it still looks good, Doesn't it ?

#Helpingmegrow #Specialreason #Bermudabay #Richrazzleberry #Delightfuldijon #Realred #Melonmambo #KOCreatiosncards #Stitchedshapes #Layeringovals #Touchesoftexture  #RAK
I have added 5 sequins to each card front, just to add a touch of bling.
Just to keep each card a little different, I have added the sentiments in different positions and in differing style banners.

I hope you have enjoyed these cards.
