Super Sunday cards


Welcome to another 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday.  This week's sketch reminded me of a cake, so I polled the little people in my house for ideas and they came up with "books, stairs, upside down ice cream cone".  I opted for a watercolor feel and some butterflies, but I'd love to see how the sketch inspires you.




And this card uses the current Skipping Stones Design sketch, I missed the deadline last week, so I'm trying to be early this wek.  I was asked to make a few more cards for my girlfriend's co-worker.  Inside the card it has the PTI Big Birthday Wishes sentiment "years ago... on what otherwise might have been just an ordinary day, the world got you".  

Materials: PTI Happy Trails, SRM stickers, PTI Double sided banner die and Happy Trails die, Tim Holtz distress inks festive berries, worn lipstick, seedless perserves, Smooch Cheery Ice spritz, PTI kraft and white card stock, Spellbinders Label One, vellum,

43 card: Skipping Stones Grunge, PTI By the Numbers die, PTI Limitless Layers 2 1/2 inch die, Spellbinders circle die, May Arts natural string, Coredinations card stock, Tim Holtz Gathered twigs distress inks, Tim Holtz woodgrain embossing folder
