Tuesday Morning Sketch 745

I quarter turned this sketch for my card. I used a stamp from Unity Stamps for the verse and used espresso distressed oxide ink. The plaid paper is design paper from my scrap pile. I used a Sizzix oval die and a Sizzix flower die with Sizzix leaves die as well. The centers of the flowers are pearl embellishments. I thought this would make a great Easter card for the upcoming season. 


Allsort Challenge 768


I made this card for the Allsorts challenge 768. The criteria was to use shades of pink. I inked the inside of a 3_D embossing folder with pink distress oxide ink,  and then pressed my white cardstock between it. I really loved the look I achieved by that. The floral digital is from Power Poppy and is colored with copic alcohol markers. The sentiment is from Unity stamps and was stamped in versafine clair black ink. I mounted thiis front onto a pink cardstock base. I added a few pearls as embellishment. 

You can find the details of the Allsorts challenge here where you can also find the linky to play along:

Celebrating International Women's Day - Festive Friday challenge

My supportive sentiment for this challenge for the International Women's Day is "She is brave."
I also used pink, blue, and embossing.  I did use florals pieces although I would not call this a bouquet. I inked the inside of my embossing folder to get this lovely background. Those 3-D embossing folders are amazing! This one is from Sizzix.
