Sketch Saturday and Papertake Challenge Cards

I've two more challenge cards ready today, the first is for Sketch Saturday which, as usual, is a lovely sketch to work with.


Papers are Kaiser, the sweet image is coloured with Ranger Distress Inks, I punched the circles and added PM pearl brads and the white Inkessentials pen came out again. The lace is absolutely exquisite and has a beautiful silky sheen to it.
The second card is for the Papertake Weekly Challenge which is 'Get Into Shape!' - to use three shapes on your work. I bought one of these new Smirk stamps yesterday, only 99p, and some of the matching papers, tags and ribbon, thinking they would be useful for younger girls' cards. I stamped the image three times and used Nestabilities to create the three layered scalloped circles, which are my three shapes. I coloured with Distress Inks and glittered the balloons to co-ordinate with the glitter on the paper.
Tomorrow I'm setting the challenge over at Dottie's World and I can tell you that there are some gorgeous DT cards to inspire you.
Enjoy your weekend! xxx
