Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge...Thanks

I needed to get some cards done to have on hand 
and when I found these sketches I knew they would be perfect.
They are easy to use and like I said before the cards just make 

Here is my version..
I used Botanical Tea paper (LOVE IT)
Added Twilight Blue cardstock from CTMH.
The Thanks stamp is from my stash.
Love this double layer butterfly

Tsunami Rose Designs- Ambrosia

Today I made a Birthday card with gorgeous digital paper from Tsunami Rose.
I used Ambrosia 6x6 digital paper..
I also used Grunge Board.. love it!!!

I knew as soon as I saw this paper it would be the center
of the center stair step card.
Along with the rosettes and the butterfly border this paper
is so pretty and vintage.. I just love it.
I think this paper would make a beautiful wedding card.
Here are the links to the shop...

Have a great Monday.

Hi... Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

Happy Friday!
Today I had to make a card for a friend that loves flowers
and bright colours. I picked this paper I had in my stash as I 
knew she would love it.
I used a sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge
as I really love their sketches The cards almost make themselves.
This week's sketch #65 is another great sketch...

I added some bling and some Stickles to my flower.
The Hi is from a CTMH stamp set.
I also coloured the flower with CTMH markers.

PP Farewell Card

Happy Monday!
Today I am posting My Favourite Things for Pinque Peacock.
On this card I used a gorgeous button from Pinque Peacock.
I just love these fabric covered buttons made by Jessica!!!
 I also used some 3 Girl Jam ribbon that came with my June Crafty Kit Club Kit.

I made my own texture paste..
I made a small amount and it worked great.
I used my daisy stencil.
I also used gesso on all the edges. 
For the small circles on the bottom right corner and the
top left corner  I used gesso and the other end of a sponge dauber.
The paper is from Botanical Tea. 
I also used a die cut made from chipboard
painted with gesso and then sprayed with mist.
The farewell is computer generated.

Make sure you come and join the Pinque Peacock Challenge Blog
Summer is the theme this month...

I am entering this card in the following challenge..

I have to mention how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE
Daisy's Digital Papers..

The lace is from my stash as are the flowers..
I also added pearls.
