MMSC53, CTD92 Friends for Life and Curtain Call #29, 2S4Y52 Sweet Pea

Howdy friends!!!

It's been a crazy week here at the Ledlow house. Today was the first time I had a chance to stamp...wahoo!!!

I found a few different challenges I wanted to play.......my first card is for the MMSC53 Sketch and the CTD92 - using Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Old Olive and Kraft.


I used the beautiful Life Set from Papertrey Ink. The Kraft CS was embossed with the Retro Diamonds Folder from QuicKutz. Following the Sketch I added some Saffron Ribbon with Silver Pearls on the side.

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

My next card is for the Curtain Call #29 - using Summer Sun, Tangerine Tango, Bordering Blue and White. The Sketch is from the 2S4Y #52.


The Sweet Pea Set Set is from There She Goes. The image was inked with Memento Black and colored with Copic Markers. I added some White Cotton Lace, the punched borders, piercing and the Button with the Silver Pearls.

Hope you like it!?!?

Thank you for stopping by....have a wonderful evening!!! ~S~

(Generous applause!!!)These are both so lovely, Silke! And so many "Silke-isms" combined! Love the pretty lace with the silver pearls. And ... I have decided that I just don't have enough of these "silhouette" type stamps. I use my "Pocket Silhouettes" to death but need something bigger! Hhhmmm ... do we ever have enough stamp sets??? (giggle!) Hugs xxAxx
