Sheila's choice of theme this week, she designed a sketch for us all to follow.


Sheila's card

I started with a 6x6 card after using one of my dies to cut a border I used some brown ink to show off the embossed detail. I then used a flower die and cut some flowers in teh same pink card and again inked the embossing. The verse I used is a stamp which I stamped onto white card then used another die to cut the circle and inked the edges before removing the die. I placed the verse onto a brown scalloped die shape, I then added the flowers and leaves for embellishments and used some card candy and gems to finish.

Kathy's card

Starting with a 6 x 6 white base card, the first matt is from striped paper from my stash, l then die cut a border from plain purple card, and added a strip of spotted paper for faux ribbon effect. The main image was coloured with both Promarkers and Spectrum Noirs, and l decoupaged the hat. I then die cut both the main image and the text, matt onto spotted paper, inking the edges with Shaded Lilac distressed ink. To finish off I punched out flowers both in plain and spotted paper and layered onto each other, placed them onto a matt silver flourish.....card complete.
Kandis' card

This one is a 6x6 white base card followed by a sheet of green card.  I then embossed some white centura pearl card using one of the new 6x6 embossing folders from crafters companion - beautiful isn't?  The image is a stamp which came free with one of this months craft magazines but I am sorry I cannot remember which one, but I can tell you there were two lovely stamps.  I have coloured this one in using spectrum noirs and copics, die cut using spellbinders.  The flowers and leaves are all Marianne dies.  The sentiment is a die from Xcut.  All finished off with a couple of card candi and some gems.
