Sketch Saturday & A Spoonful of Sugar

Yesterday evening, I stumbled onto another amazing weekly challenge called "Sketch Saturday". They are having a Design Team call and I thought I'd have a go. There is a lovely sketch posted and you need to make two cards. You can see the details here. Well, I needed to make two cards pretty fast. Luckily today was beautiful and sunny and the children played happily outside all day. I watched them out of the window as I made these cards. I decided I could use the first card to enter into the Spoonful of Sugar Challenge as well. This week you need to use 3 different ribbons. I have used brown & aqua ribbons and there is a wide sheer black ribbon running across the card with the thinner brown ribbon on top.

First Card: Beaming
  • Stamp: Magnolia School Collection 2008, Sentiment from Verve
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: PaperTrey Aqua Mist, K&Co
  • Coloring: Copic markers
  • Embellies: Ribbon-Verve & Flourishes, SU! Hodge Podge & Jewel Brads, Prima Flower
  • Tools: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, Scor-Pal
Second Card: Joy to the World
  • Stamps: WOJ Charlotte & Charlie Winter Collection, Verve Sentiment & Snowflakes
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: Ellen Hutson Corn Blue, Wasau White, CM Metallic
  • Coloring: Copic Markers
  • Embellies: Dew Drops, May Arts Ribbon, Stickles
  • Tools: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, Snowflake Embossing Folder, Scor-Pal

Thanks so much for stopping by and a Special "Thank You" to Jo of Sketch Saturday for offering this opportunity!

You can see all of Charlotte's sparkles in this close-up!
