365 Cards - #164 & #165 Colour Scheme & Shape Up

I am playing catch up due to illness. So here are my cards for 365 Cards for days 164 and 165. The first one here is day 165 and the challenge was Shape Up - A Star had to be the dominant shape on your card. I chose a deceased SU set All In The Stars which has hardly been inked up. The SU DP is also a deceased one and the ribbon is from my stash.

For day 164 the challenge was a colour challenge and I had this DCWV Butterflies & Blossoms paper stack which had the pastel version of the colour scheme so I used it for this challenge.
As you can see both cards are fairly simplistic but to be honest at least I got them done because my bed has been calling my name all week. The outstanding part of this card is the fact that I have used my very first set of Nestabilities for it. I received this set of Nesties in the post today from a very kind and generous friend to which my sincere thanks go to and to top it off my bestie Sonya turned up and had bought me a new paper stack from DCWV plus some flower embellishments so with two parcels arriving in the one day I was a very happy camper.
Okay until later on this evening with a brand new days challenge. Seeya.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
