Happy Birthday Friend and another coffee card



I'll be brief as I'm about to head out for the afternoon.  Two cards using this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.  Love taking a sketch and make a one-layer card, I feel like it's an extra challenge.  The second card uses more of the same pieces as my earlier cards this week.  But-- drum roll-- I actually cleaned my desk, something that happens once in a blue moon.  So the other left over pieces have all been tidied up, so I guess I'll have to move onto another trend.





And since I used the same pieces this card also works for the CR84FN challenge, I know, it's very similar to the other card, but if it's working why not stick with it?  

Materials: Hero Arts Newspaper Tullips, HA Friend (can't remember which set), Waltzingmouse Frame It sentiment, PTI kraft card stock, Twinery twine, Martha Stewart score pal, Tim Holtz distress inks shabby shutters and festive berries, Versafine black ink

Fancy a Cuppa: Waltzingmouse Frame It sentiment, PTI Warm Happiness Too stamp and die, Lifestyle Crafts letterpress, Authentique Blissful paper, PTI kraft and white caard stock, Versafine black ink

Oooo, Erin! Love those tulips on the kraft and the bits of twine really bring out the red! Love how you did the double sentiment, those fonts were made to go together! Awesome scored frame, too!

These are beautiful! I love the elegance of the first card and the absolute eye popping quality of the second! The paper piecing, embossing and background of the coffee card really made me look twice - it's absolutely fabulous!
