A Sketch and a CASE



Happy Saturday Peeps!!!

Toady I have two cards to show you. The first one is for the weekend sketch challenge seen here.

I varied the sketch just a bit, not on purpose, but because I didn't look closely when putting it all together. My side element is behind the bottom piece, and in the sketch it is over. But all in all I think it still works.

I started with a base of pretty in pink. The colors on this card is a bit different than my usual, but my DD loves pink so I thought I would work with it some.

I used the SU set "Upsy Daisy" for the image. I inked up the flowers with pretty in pink ink and then used my certainly celery marker to ink the stems. I used my nesties and cuttlebug to cut out the scallop and the rose red scalloped mat. The DS paper is from an old retired pack, Spring Fling. I used a cuttlebug strip embossing folder for the side piece and punched a couple of butterflies for the accent element.

This next card is a total CASE of this cutie patootie card by my blogging buddy Beth from Big Sky Paper and Design. Love her blog!



The card is made with just two layers, I know, a shock to my card making system, but I do LOVE it. I was so happy to see that this set, Season of Friendship, made it into the new catalog. It is one of my faves!

The only thinks I changed from her original is the way the "grass" is done. I used a strip of certainly celery and used my paper snips to "cut" the grass look. I added some sticky rhinestones to the center of the flowers.

Well, that is all for today, Thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!

The embossed "rick-rack" pattern on the first card really adds a lot -- funny how such a simple thing can add so much.

Thanks for sharing!
