ABSC009 and SS090110 - Two challenge cards

Hi all,

back again and it's only Sunday! So much for posting twice a week....... I wanted to join in a Card challenge over at Annabelle Stamps, I've not entered a card challenge since before Christmas and Annabelle Stamps is an Australian Company, so here we are! The owner of Annabelle Stamps, Andrea has a Simply Saturday CAS challenge over on her blog, 'Stamping Moments' that I thought might be fun too. So two cards to post, the first is for Andrea's blog.

We had a simple layout to follow and I made a CAS Valentine Cards...... What do you think? I couldn't resist adding the gold ring around the popped up image though!!!
I also ran my card through the Cuttlebug with some card to emboss a line down the right hand side - not sure if the camera has picked that up too well.

Card: GKD Pure Luxury pure heavyweight in pure white. Gold circle off cut from the next card!!!
Stamp: Special Delivery by Tami Mayberry for GKD.
Ink: VersaColor - Cardinal
Spellbinders circle and petite scalloped circle dies.

The second card is for the challenge on Annabelle Stamps - which was another sketch challenge.
I've used a digital illustration from Mo Manning for my card. This is Jack and Ginger.......the sentiment is one from Inspiration Mosaic by Melanie Muenchinger for GKD. I've matted this to a circle of gold card and used foam tabs to pop it up.
I layered the image onto some striped dp which in turn sits on some gold card. The base card is Sahara Sand from SU. Copics were used to colour this image and I added the gems to the sentiment as well as the gold cord to complete the sketch.

Card: SU Sahara Sand, White card. Gold card. dp Pinstripe by Heidi Grace Designs for Fiskars.
Image: Mo Mannings - Jack and Ginger. Sentiment: GKD - Inspiration Mosaic.
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black.
Embellishments: Gold cord and Kaisercraft gems.

Thanks for taking the time to pop in today, I hope you'll come back tomorrow when I'll be sharing my card made with Nina May's latest free digital image from TMITA for everyone to play with.

Hope to see you then..........
