Quick Cards

Hey gang,

Just wanted to wish everyone a wonderful Thursday and show you a couple of cards that I put together really fast last night for a couple of challenges that are ending today. My first one is for the Stock the Pantry challenge #3 at Doodle Pantry where we are to use one of Laurie's images. I used the image and sentiment from her set "Gingko Leaves" along with some new paper "Far East" from DCWV and a border embossing folder by Cuttlebug "Organic Flourishes" that I found on our getaway.

This second card is for the clearly inspired challenge #30 at Clear Dollar Stamps which is a sketch.



Not very happy with this one, but it is what it is....wish that I had did some distressing or sponging on the leaves to give them more depth. My image is by Clear Dollar Stamps "Pear-fect Tree and Wreath" set which I colored with my Prismas and OMS. The ribbon is Stampin' Up so saffron and the papers are scraps from my stash of leftovers.

If you are fast, there is still time to play at both of these...off to take a friend out of town for a doctor's appointment, but I will try and visit later on today. Take care and happy day!

Love what you did with the sketch....using the leaves instead of a solid sheet of paper...clever!! How did you do the leaves...die or hand cut? I think the card is cute and any friend would love to have it.
Thanks for squeezing CIC30 into your schedule! Hope to see you tomorrow when challenge 31 is release...and if you check out my blog there is a sneak peak of the totally cute stamp set that comes out tomorrow with the challenge.
