2 sketches

Today's posting are from a couple of sketches I found over on 2 Sketches 4 You. The girls are conducting a Design Team call and I thought I'd give it a try. The first sketch uses the stamp set Eastern Blooms with Tangerine Tango and Ballet Blue. I also added in some black embossing to pop it a bit. I used Crystal Effects to cover the main flower and it dangles from some black grosgrain ribbon.

I used the set Say it With Scallops for my next entry along with some of the new Stampin' Up! designer paper. It's an interesting color combination but I think it works quite well. Orchid Opulence (which I hate) and Regal Rose.

Here's a close up of the faux brads. Whenever I add them to my cards I love the way they turn out. And they are so easy! Just punch out some small circles, I used my crop-a-dile, glue them to your card and add a glob of Crystal Effects onto them. ta-da! ain't it pretty?

Both these cards are great! Love the orange one, and I'm not usually one for the color.
Good luck with the DT!
Something for you on my blog.
