Happy Friday everyone! I hope that you are all having a pleasant day and are looking forward to the memorial day weekend. I don't have anything special planned but it will be nice to have my husband home for a few days. The weather report here is pretty favorable also so maybe I will actually get some nice pictures taken of cards I have made. Well, providing I am able to create some that is. For today I have 2 more cards to show you that I created for the challenges in the Gina K forum.
This first card I love the color pallette of. I took my colors from the dp I used which is from cosmo cricket purchased at All that Scraps. I matted that onto celery, pink bazzill bling and attached to a blue bayou card base. Each of those layers were highlighted by faux piercing with a white gel pen on the bayou layer and choc chip on the other 2 layers. I colored my sundae image using my prismacolor markers and outlined with stardust stickles. I then sponged around the image with celery ink and faux pierced that with choc chip. I glued the image onto a giga scalloped circle punched out of bazzill bling. I paper pierced the scallops around the circle and attached to my card. I added double stitched bayou ribbon and the your're so sweet sentiment. The sentiment was cut out using the word window punch and the technique given by gina k on her blog extending the word window. I cut out 2 ovals, matted them and adhered the sentiment on top of them and add that to the card. At this point I looked at my card and the top corner just seemed so bare and "needed something" so I decided that primas would do the trick. I went into my stash found some that coordinated nicely with the paper and used shimmer brads and glue dots to attach them. Voila...card finished. Here is the sketch that I followed for my card.

This second card I am not that wild about and not fond of the sketch either but it gave me a chance to win a stamp set (which I didn't by the way LOL)so I played along. I will be redoing this card and will of course share the new updated version. Some mentioned that this sketch remined them of an elongated toilet seat and I have to say I agree. I started out by cutting a bunch of ovals with my CM cutting system. I cut 3 ovals and matted them onto one another. I cut out my stork image using my mega scalloped circle punch. I colored it using my prismamarkers and added stickles of course for some sparkle. I added 3 eyelets on the celery layer and tied celery ribbon through them according to the sketch. I added 3 pink rhinestones along the bottom again according to the sketch. I intend to use the oval images for the most part but attach them to a regular card base so when I finish that I will post it. But for now here is the card for you to see in it's "before" state. Oh and here is the sketch if you want to see.
