This next card uses the sketch from Inspirational Sketches, which is run by my friend Dawn! I have been wanting to play along since she started this site, and just now have had the time - her sketches are fabulous, if you haven't, you should check them out! Yes, this card uses contraband, but I needed to ink up this cute little cupcake! I don't own very many non-SU! stamp sets, but this one I just had to have!! It's from Taylored Expressions and is called A Year of Sweets 2. Isn't that little cuppie adorable? (and yes, I fixed the crooked panel, I was just too lazy to take another pic,lol!) The sentiment is not in that set, but I thought it went perfect so I used it. I am quite pleased with how this came out, and I am sending this out so a very sweet gal who needs some happy mail and loves cupcakes!! No recipe for this one but if you have a question, just ask me and I will do my best to answer it! This last card is for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge this week. I love Julee's sketches and try really hard to play along every week - seems like I always miss the week when there is something fabulous to win, lol! This sketch was really fun, there are so many things you can do with it. I decided I needed to use my God's Beauty stamp set from the Hostess Level One sets- I love this set because it has a big butterfly in it, and you know how much I love butterflies! I also used quite a bit of Iridescent Ice on this card - all the images are embossed. It really makes the card shimmer IRL and I think if you click on the image, you will be able to see it as well! I wanted something happy and springy so I thought my Tea Party dsp would be perfect! So, there you have my three challenge cards - I felt pretty good getting them done, normally I can manage to squeeze in just a couple! I love to use sketches though, I find it gets my creative juices flowing and often I alter the sketch to suit my needs. Here is the recipe for this last card!
