A Sketch X's 2

Hello everyone, I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Easter weekend! We had a quiet day around here, so I got a little stamping in while dinner was cooking. I made this card for the Sweet Stop Sketch #105 found here. I colored this Sweet'nSassy image with Copics and used Websters DP for the background, adding embossing on one panel with a Sizzix powdered sugar ef. I added 2 small paper flowers and gemstones, and had to add the little bow to cover up a cutting error on the oval panel. Oops!!
I had enough scraps left over from the first card to create another for the Stars & Stamps sketch challenge #66 found here. For this one I used the SU! bird punch, and a Sweet'nSassy sentiment. The butterfly was done with a MS punch, and the heart punched border was done using an EK punch. The embossed panel was done with the same EF I used on the card above, only I sanded it just a little to show some white core. All the DP is by Websters.
We had a picture-perfect day today with all the windows open and we even got the screens in the storm doors. Right now a thunder storm is rolling through, but I don't mind at all after the gorgeous day we had :)
Wishing you all a great week ahead, and thanks so much for stopping by!

I LOVE the bow! Don't you just love it when an "oops" turns into something wonderful! Both cards are darling. Hope you had a wonderful Easter, too, Carol.

Carol, both of these cards are adorable. On your first card, your' oops is covered beautifully. I love that ribbon. I, of course, love Bethanny and your papers are just great. On you second card, again, I love the papers and the embellishments all look so nice together. Love the colors also. Now I need to get working on some cards myself after I run a few errands this morning.

Gorgeous card, Carol! I feel like I am in a food coma, and I really didn't eat that much. Too much sampling I guess. Hope you have a great weekend.

Both the cards are just adorable. I'm so glad you had a gorgeous Easter. It was sunny all weekend while visiting my son and in the
90's. Just couldn't have asked for a more perfect Easter.
You are turning out some awesome cards, Carol!
