It's a super simple sketch this week as are my cards.
This first card was actually the last card I made, and I believe it's also my favorite. I cut the music hexagon from some MME paper. The bird and cage were cut from another hexagon on the same paper, and pop dotted on top of the music. Then I layered it all on some dark blue/teal paper for a pop of color. Sentiment is from Hero Arts, I believe.
For this card, I used a card base that I scored with my new diagonal score board from SU. I think I might need some practice as I got my scores a bit off. The image is an old SU image stamped in Ranger Perfect Medium and then colored with chalk. I added glue to the wings and sprinkled them with glamour dust.
For this card, I used some of the scraps of die cuts using the tessatina die from Memory Box and adhered them to a piece of pale green card stock, which is popped up on a darker green card stock. The image was colored with several different colors of Memento markers and stamped on white card stock. I cut around the image and popped it over the die cuts. Image and sentiment are both from SU.
This card took all of 3 minutes. I used a Kraft card base, stamped the sentiment in brown, and added a layered flower sticker and leaf....couldn't get much easier than this!
This card was kind of an afterthought when I was playing with the other dragonfly image. I wasn't as happy with the colors, but then when I backed it with the pink, I decided that I'd go ahead a make a card anyway. I used some postage edge scissors to trim the edges. Then I scored a couple of frames around the image.
That's all for me today. We've had a tough week at our house. My OH was hospitalized for 4 days with bronchitis, pneumonia, and an upper respiratory infection. We finally got to come home yesterday. Now we'll have to work to get our routine back in place so that he'll settle in and relax. I haven't had a chance to see any of the beautiful cards that I know have been entered in the challenge this week, because of everything going on around here, but I hope to make it by as many as I can before the next challenge!
Edited to add: With all that's going on in my life, I completely forgot to add that I was showCASed last week! I have to say, it never ceases to delight me when I'm showCASed!! Thanks so very much to Chrissie and Mandi!
