Better Late than Never!

I'm a day late and a dollar short with these two challenge cards, but that's nothing new for me! LOL I had my granddaughter for the day yesterday which pretty much commanded my full attention. First up is the FTTC37 which is our choice of four similar sketches. I chose sketch A for mine and stamped my just-received Flourishes Forest of Trees in Hunter Green. I put some polar white flower-soft and dazzling diamonds on it for some sparkle. The dsp is from a Jo-Anne's glitter stack (thanks Heidi). I used a G studio stamp set for the circle sentiment, stamping the snowflake off once with Baja Breeze and the sentiment with Hunter Green. I used a 1-1/4, 1-3/8 and a Marvy scalloped punch for the layers, a Nestability for the circle, and Dew Drops for interest.

Next up is Mercy Kerin's MTSC43 sketch challenge. First I smeared my small CB embossing folders with Pretty in Pink, then embossed them, and layered them with PIP cardstock. I stamped the card stock base with PiP ink, using the Stitched backgrounder. The main panel was cut with the Nestabilites Labels 4 in PiP and white. The sentiment by Verve was done in cool grey, and the ribbon and button were from my stash. The butterfly was done with a MS punch and the 3mm pearls are from Hero Arts.
Now I need to work on Wednesday's challenges..........and most likely they'll be posted on Thursday :) Ok Pat, I can hear you chuckling all the way back here in PA LOL
Have a wonderful day everyone!!
