MFT Sketch Challenge 294

     This week I decided to play along with the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge.  Here is this weeks sketch and my card based on the sketch.









 
 I have grey and blue placemats on my kitchen table  and I like the color combination so much that I decided to use those colors on my card.  I used the Beautiful Blooms stamps and die cuts for the floral bouquet.  There are so many pretty leaves and flowers in this set, that it was hard to choose which flowers to use. I highlighted the flowers with a frame from the Scallop Rectangle Frame die set.  For the dotted scallops,  I used the Myriad Dot background stamp and  the Stitched Scallop Edges die.  Three dots of Caribbean Ocean Nuvo Crystal Drops finished off  the card.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a good weekend.

Mix It Up Challenge

     The card I am sharing today was made for the Mix It Up  Challenge at Ellen Hutson.  This months challenge is to use an Essentials by  Ellen product combined with a Winnie and Walter product.




For  this card I used the Many Thanks die  from Ellen Hutson and A Tree For All Seasons stamp set from Winnie and Walter. I really like this stamp set, especially the tree which reminds me of the giant magnolia tree in my back year.  Birds tend to flock to the tree, especially Blue Jays and Cardinals.    I separated the words in the die cut and altered it by adding   the small leaf stamp from the set to the sentiment.  A few ink blots finished off the card. 
 
Thanks so much for visiting and have a good day!
