Flowers and Baubles


Here's my card for the OWH sketch challenge 150, and it's also for the OWH ODBD December challenge to use flowers on your card. The images and sentiment are from HA, and I used scraps of dsp to put this together. The flowers were stamped and embossed with clear detail ep on pink cardstock, then fussy cut and popped up on foam tape. I added spica glitter pen accents to the flower centers, and I'm very happy with the way this card turned out.

This card was done for the Addicted to CAS ATCAS#2 challenge which is "bauble." The HC ornament dies were stamped & embossed with silver ep using SU's baroque motifs set, and studded with tiny red gems. The sentiment is from SU's more merry messages and was also embossed with silver ep, and the "chains" that are holding the ornaments are stickers! A couple tiny red bows and this card was done!

It feels good to get back into my craft room again after so many days with other priorities! Thanks for stopping by today, and now I must head to the post office and actually mail those cards I've been making all year :) Make it a fabulous Tuesday!

Carol, this first card is spectacular. I love the black and pink together. Your second card is outstanding. Great idea to use the Baroque Motif (I love that set) for your baubles. The stickers and bows are darling. I hope you have a great day and get back into your craft room again this afternoon. Talk soon.

Hi Carol! Wowsers! Your sketch card is awesome! Love the flowers, checks, and dots. I have some yellow check paper that is demanding to be made into a CASE card!

Your ornaments card is really cool, love the stamp set you used and the gems add great sparkle.
