A sketch card

I have been inspired by many cards made by Paula Reid. (Thank you Paula) I have seen many wonderful cards that she has created, including the ones she makes as a DT member for Trying Stampin' On TuesdayIt has been a while since I have made a card based on a challenge blog and I thought it is about time that I did.  I wanted to take part last week, but ran out of time.  I needed a birthday card for a friend so I thought I would use their sketch this week - challenge #102 as a starting point. 

Here is my card:

And this is the sketch it is based on:

Stamps: Easy Events, Itty Bitty Banners
Cardstock: Lucky Limeade, Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White
Ink: Lucky Limeade, Wisteria Wonder (markers)

A shaped card

It was a friend's birthday today so I thought I would make her a shaped card using the Labels Collection Framelits.  I also thought it would be a good chance to use a new stamp set, Mixed Bunch, that I got at the end last year.  Finally I got the chance to use it. 

Stamps: Mixed Bunch, Itty Bitty Banners
Cardstock: Midnight Muse, Very Vanilla, 
Ink: Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit
Other: Labels Collection Framelits, Bitty Banners Framelit Dies, Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder,  1" Circle Punch, Blossom Punch, Festive Paper Piercing Pack, Paper Piercing Tool and Mat, Dimensionals, Pearl Basic Jewels

Thanks for dropping by.

Enjoy your weekend.
