This first card is based on this week's sketch over at Get Sketchy. I used that funky color combo again - but I love how bright and cheery it is! Thanks Donna for letting me try out the nestabilities that I used on both cards, I may need these ones in my new collection now that I have my bug...
For this one, I used a Whiff of Joy image that Danderella shared with me months ago. I finally got around to coloring her and I love how she turned out. I have used the sketch from Lili of the Valley to complete this card. I must admit that I had some difficulty incorporating the two strips on the side and deciding where to place my sentiment, but I think it turned out ok in the end.
Here is a close up - you can tell I have used my SU spritzer tool again! LOL, I love that thing! I embellished with flowers that I picked up at DAT'S the other day $1.99 per pack of 24. Umm, I like flowers a lot...and I think I need more of these....
Since I used stitching on both cards, I am going to enter them over at Crafty Creations. And since both are spring themed, I am entering them at Stamp Something as well.
Off to visit a few blogs and then retire early as tomorrow is a travel day for work...
