More Sketch Challenges!!

Good morning everyone......I have been a busy stamper this week!! Our church craft sale is in a few weeks so the crunch is on...I have lots of things started and only a few things finished. Hopefully, I can get the majority of the projects and card sets finished next week. We will have two grandkiddos this weekend so I won't be doing much stamping...especially since Caitlyn is only 3!! Anyway....
I made this card for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #19. The background paper from Webster's Pages was distressed and sewing was done around the edges. The star from Sewing Box - Hugs was stamped on the Webster's Pages dp, cutout, and popped with dimensionals. The sentiment from Oven Fresh Gingerbread Joy was stamped on white cs and sponged with soft sky. The Baker's Twine and button were added to finish it off.
Recipe:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Kraft, Webster's Pages Home for the Holidays
Accessories: Baker's Teine, Button, Sewing Machine
I made this for the Our Craft Lounge Sketch Challenge #35...the Oriental Garden set images were colored with copics and the lanterns were cutout and attached with glue dots. Sewing was done around the edges and the ribbon is the only embellishment...yikes...I must be sick...LOL!!!
Recipe:
Stamps: OCL Oriental Garden
Paper: Vanilla, Basic Gray, Basic Grey's Ambrosia dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Ribbon, Martha Stewart Scallop Border Punch, Sewing Machine

Thanks for stopping by this morning...have a great Thursday!!!

Two very different cards. I like the warm, homey, old-fashion, applique quilt feel of the first card and the elegant, Asian feel of the second.
