Sketch Saturday Challenge & DT call


This week's sketch saturday challenge is slightly different because if you wish to be considered for a DT place you have to make two cards, one being a christmas card. These are my entries for the challenge.

On the first card (which by the way I made for my sister's 40th birthday today) I used shoe dp from a kit that I got from QVC and the dotty dp is from a paper pack by papermania (again from QVC). The image is of course a stamping bella - cupcakeabella, which I coloured with my pro-markers and highlighted with stickles. The sticky ribbon is by papermania and the adhesive gems were from QVC. I used my fiskars threading water paper punch on a piece of bazzill bling cs. The pre-made stickers are by rob & bob and I used my pc for the sentiments.

For the christmas card I stamped the image called snowmen by lizzie anne designs and highlighted their hats with my pro-markers. The gorgeous snowflake dp is by craft creations and again I used my fiskars threading water paper punch to make the decorative edge on the white cs. The snowflake embellisments are by card candy. I used my square nestabilities (for the first time *gasp*) in my cuttlebug to emboss and cut the blue dp panel under the stamped image.

I hope you like. I know they won't be up to the winning standard but I'm relatively happy with them. Thanks for looking.
