My first card is for the SSS87 sketch challenge over at the Sweet Stop. I dug through my stash of DP and found this gorgeous retired SU! paper and decided to use it for the challenge. There's a twist to the challenge and that's to use stitching, either real or faux. I drug out the ole beast and actually sewed on my card today. I used the SweetnSassy Christmas Candle image and sentiment, coloring with Copics and adding stickles for some sparkle. The ribbon is by SU! and also retired. The sentiment was embossed with brown ep and a few golden nail heads were added. Note to self: buy new sewing machine needles so your stitches don't skip!
Here's another card I made using the same retired DP, along with old olive, chocolate chip and ruby red. This card was made for the QFTD40 over on SCS and this week's queen is Reddyisco/aka Jo. I chose this card of hers to case, since I've always loved this Rubber Stampede image! I swapped the flower for a snowflake and changed the sentiment panel a little, adding some gold deco pen accents to the sentiment and Santa's glasses.
It's been a busy day here at my house with company all afternoon, but I love it when friends stop by! It's that time of the year :D
Have a super weekend and thanks for stopping by here too!
