CPS Sketch 205

 Hi , everyone today, I have 2 cards to show. The 1st card is base on a sketch from CPS Challenge (which I am sending it ,in for.)I have rotated it anti-clockwise, to create my card.The paper is Prima's annalee, love this paper so.. so  sweet! It just so happens, that the patten has this 4 spaces /design so I cut out the words(LOVE) and added glossy accents to it.Thought it would be intersting to have someone popping his head out.The curvy patten looks like waves...added a shell to create a sea theme since there is a mermaid there.I have added another shell for the inside of the card too.

  Hi everyone , today I have 2 cards both on animals , just finish adding the final details of this card .I used the Penny Black Challenge sketch- and change the position.The 2 hugging hedgeis is one of my most used and favorite stamp from PB.I  cut an oval window for the little hedgehog to peep in to see ....what's happening in the card.Have added ribbon roses and prima flowers which I have added pink glimmer mist to the center.I like the look of lace tied up in a bow,and have added a heart hanging from it.The pink ribbon with the words hugs .kisses matches so will with the picture.

  As for the inside of the card , have punch out 2 hearts with the same pattern paper on the cover , did you notice the bracket edge popping out from the back of the front cover ? And a piece of pattern paper behind the Hedgies (Have used my fav BG paper for now.... have stock -up on it too - it was on sale )To create a flow from the cover to the inside of the card.I don't really own alot of words / sentiment stamps from PB but I just love this one.
