Sweet Sketch Wednesday 159

I think it would take me ages to make my cards if it wasn't for inspirational blogs out there.  One of my favourites is Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  Love the sketch provided this week. My friend is celebrating her birthday next week, so I decided it was about time I used one of the Saturated Canary images I have. I've used Naveah.  The papers are Prima Meadow Lark Collection.  I'm quite pleased with how my flowers have come out (actually with the help of hubby as well - his suggestion).  I used 2 different flower stamps, then the white centre of the flower is part of a Marianne Creatable poinsettia die. I then added a coloured pearl in the centre of each one. I always find cards easier to post when the flowers are this flat.  I used a Sakura Gelly Roll pen to add the white dots on Naveah's dress.

Lazy Afternoon Birthday Wishes

I love this Lily of the Valley stamp called Lazy Afternoon.  Who wouldn't like to just laze in the sun under the shade of a tree. I've used the sketch at Sunday Sketch & Stamp Challenge 111 - Francesca's sketch. It was a lovely sketch to use and I may use it again.  The papers are Prima Sun Kiss Collection. The sentiment is by Stampin Up.  The challenge at Lili's Little Fairies is In the Garden.

Red, White & Blue

The challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenges 196 is Red, White and Blue. A perfect colour combination for a male card. The challenge at Charisma Cardz Challenge this week is Male Cards Challenge #23.  I've used an American Art Stamp and added white embossing powder on the image.  I've used a Martha Stewart punch for the picket fence, and I'm not sure if it is very clear but the 2 round circles are supposed to look like golf balls.  I've used a swiss dots Cuttlebug folder and used the opposite side of the paper to look like the pitted golf balls.
