SCS Sketch and a Paper Prettie Card

Today's Sketch Challenge on SCS was a nice simple layout. She asked us to use a flower if we could on the end. Lucky for me, I have tons of these things and rarely use was the day!
This first card was created with Cameo Coral and Chocolate Chip cardstock. It was the flower that gave me the inspiration! I stamped the flowers and sentiment in Choc Chip Craft and used Clear Embossing Powder. The large flower is actually a paper one made by Making Memories.
Stamp: Fabulous Flowers
Cardstock: Cameo Coral, Choc Chip
Ink: Choc Chip Craft
Accessories: Clear EP, Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, Paper flower, Prima Flower, Misc Brad
Yah! I got to use my rub ons! Aren't they great?! These ones are from the Eastern Elegance set. My flower is actually a silk flower that I picked up at Michael's and took it apart. I used a few layers of the flower and added a prima with a big white brad to hold it together. I think it looks pretty good.

Cardstock: Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Cutie Pie DP
Accessories: Eastern Elegance Rub Ons, Corner Rounder Punch, Round Tab Punch, Silk Flower, Prima Flower, Misc Brad, Misc Jewel
Yesterday I received the Snowflake Kisses stamp set from Christie at Paper Pretties.
I'm not much into winter and snow because of the weather we have had the past few days! LOL...but I really wanted to stamp with the new set. I used some Cosmo Cricket Hey Sugar DP for my starting point. It's hard to tell in the picture but the snow is coloured in a light wash of Bashful Blue. The entire image was coloured with Watercolour Wonder Crayons. I'm sure liking these things lately! It's great when some old is new again!
Stamp Set: Snowflake Kisses
Cardstock: Soft Sky, Bravo Burgandy, Cameo Coral, Cosmo Cricket Hey Sugar DP
Inks: Versafine Black Onyx, Soft Sky
Accessories: Scallop Punch, Blender Pen, WC Crayons, Snowflake Brads, Small and Lg Oval Punches, Dimesionals
Thanks for stopping by today!

Those first 2 cards are GREAT - I love that Dare to be fabulous stamp - they both remind me of the tags you used to make. And the last card - that must be a Paper Pretties stamp!
