Two More

Hello again, I am back with two more cards for your viewing pleasure.  The first was created using this week's Spotlight Sketch at Stamp TV and the colors from The Play Date Cafe's Color Challenge 77, green, brown and white:

Here is my card:
I am really loving this little owl from Gina K. Designs' 'Owl Always Love You' set and coloring it in with OMS.  This is my first circle card ever!  Fellow splitcoaststamper Ravengirl (a.k.a. Toni) told me I could make a circle card by cutting out two Nestability circles, scoring 1/2" from the top of one of them and attaching it to the other circle by this bent piece from the inside - genius!  I wanted to use the largest circle I could since the size of the owl panel was rather large itself, so I went with a scalloped circle shape instead.  Since this little guy certainly qualifies as a 'cute critter' I am also entering him in Lawnscaping's Challenge 8, Calling All Critters:


The second card was created using Skipping Stones Designs' Sketch 72 designed by Laurie Schmidlin, some pretty patterned papers by Echo Park and SSD's "Bra's Volume 1" set.
The fancy bra was embossed with black EP onto Pink Pirouette cardstock.  I colored in the bow in the middle and added a tiny rhinestone accent, can you see it?  Since this card has lots and lots of layers it satisfies the requirements of Cupcake Craft Challenge 138, "Lots of Layers'.

Thank again for stopping by my little blog to view my creations.   I hope you like them and have a great day!! :)

Both these cards are fab, but I especially like the second one. You've done a great job with all the layers (more than three make me nervous too) and I LOVE all the papewrs you've put together. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Cupcake this week. x
