SSSC#212 - Feather Finery

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.
 
For this week's sketch I created two card using the Papertrey Ink stamp set Feather Finery and water-colored backgrounds.  For the above card I did a wash of turquoise on the background, then heat embossed a white feather off center.  Then I layered a yellow feather on top of that which was stamped in yellow with the white dots heat embossed.
For the card below I flipped the sketch and used a wash of three colors for my background.  I kept this card simple with two feathers with silver dots, the bird, my sentiment and a few sequins.

SSSC#211 - Happy Birthday

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  Karen has another great sketch for us to create with and we hope you'll take the time to join in.
I made two cards one for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge above and the second for the Fusion Card Challenge #6 (bottom card).  I used the PTI stamp sets Ruby Rose, Natural Beauties, Think Big Favorites and Background Basics: Medallions.  I had fun mixing up the different flower stamps from within the two floral sets and used some bright colors to create what I hope are cheerful birthday cards.

SSSC#210 - Delightful Dahlias

 Hi there!  It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.
 For my card I used the PTI stamp set Delightful Dahlias with the coordinating dies to create a birthday card.  I also used this month's PTI Color Play Combo for the colors on my card.  I don't have raspberry fizz or new leaf inks but I used what I had instead.

PTI February Blog Hop - Happy Mother's Day

Good morning!  Today is the Papertrey Ink February Blog Hop The inspiration for this month's hop is Spring.  I don't know about you but I'm ready for spring, this winter has been a long snowy one and the thought of seeing something green and growing sound wonderful.
Although roses aren't necessarily the first spring flowers that pop to mind, I decided to use them anyway to create a floral Mother's Day card. I used the new Papertrey Ink stamp set Garden Grace with the coordinating dies.  For my layout I used the Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #116.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!
