CC221, FS121 God's Beauty and ISC Sketch Challenge!!!

Hello everyone!!!

Thank you for all the anniversary wishes yesterday - you guys are too kind and thoughtful!!!

Jerry and I are going out tonight, since our friends couldn't watch the girls yesterday!!! We have this lovely upscale Restaurant in town that we love to visit on special occasions and hopefully see a movie. I'll have to saved up all my calories for our dinner tonight - yummy - just talking about it makes my taste buds go bananas - LOL!!!

Let's change the subject :) here are two cards I've made.

The first one was for the CC221 - using Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss and Riding Hood Red!!! I was originally inspired by this weeks FS121 - Rox71. She has a fabulous gallery and she rocks the SCS house with her awesome Sketches on Wednesday's!!!

I saved this card to case and unfortunately I ran out of time yesterday to add some DP.....since the CC was posted late and I had to run to pick up my girls from camp....!!!

Here is what I've changed - no DP, I added scoring and piercing, used different colors and a different image!!!

The Set I used is the Hostess Level I - God's Beauty. I really enjoy this Set!!! Here is another card I made with this Set - I just realized I never posted it onto my blog!!!

I used Stampin Dimensionals to raise the center panel, flower and the butterfly. Next I decorated the card with some of my favorite Silver Pearls (Michael's).

**************************************

Next is a card I made for the Innovative Stamp Creations - Sketch Challenge #509.

I used the super cute ISC Set - Dainty Daisies. The sentiment is from the ISC Set - You're Special.

First I stamped the flowers using Pink Pirouette and Tangerine Tango Ink on a seperate White CS. Next I cut them out and raised them with Stampin Dimensionals.

Before I placed the flowers onto the Oval Nestie I stamped the sentiment in Basic Black.

As you can tell I made my card upright instead of a long card according to the Sketch. I used the same techniques - scoring and piercing - as the card above!!!

To finish off the Sketch I added a button from the PTI - Hibiscus Burst Collection. I dressed the button up with a Silver Antique Brad from Anna Griffin. At the end I added the Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon.

Before I forget....please make sure to stop by the ISC Store to see all the new Stamp Set's Betsy just released - they are awesome!!!

Well I hope you like the cards??? I'm putting the Blog Candy together today...so I hope you'll swing by to sign up tomorrow??? ~TFL~
