Pretty cards ...

Hello there!

Today I am sharing 2 more cards that I created for some challenges!

This first card is based on the following Retro Sketches challenge:

As you can see, I kept the fun "randomness" of the sketch and made use of different textures to add dimension and make the card that little bit more "interesting".

I even managed to throw in a few cute heart ended straight pins!

The next card that I am sharing is based on the following I Spy Sketches challenge:

I slightly altered the sketch by putting the scalloped edge on the top ... I wish I could say that this was on purpose ... but I accidentally glued things on upside down before I realized!  Good thing there are no mistakes in scrapbooking :)

I chose to use this beautiful wooden butterfly and twine to add some dimension.  I also made good use of my sewing machine around the edges of the card. 

Thanks for stopping in today!


  1. Love that you used the wood-grain paper on a card. You have some mad-cluster skills going on too! The color combo and pattern mix really make card 2 srand out. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Love the woodgrain background on your card..very eye catching!

  3. Great job on N@'s sketch - I'm so stumped! Love all the texture and colours. As for your 'mistake' in the second - I call them happy design surprises! lol!

    1. That's a great philosophy Ardyth! Serendipidity!

  4. Nice dimention, love that woodgrain background. Thank you for playing along at RetroSketches ; )

  5. love these two cards! the first one with all of the bits and bobs all over it is so darling and the second being a little more clean is very pretty!

  6. Love your card for the retro sketch - it really stands out!

  7. Love the butterfly "bow" and the scalloped edge along your main panel! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week over at iSpy Sketches :D
