Two Sketch Challenge Cards

I made both of these cards for this week's SplitCoastStampers Sketch Challenge. For this first one, I started with a dollar stamp from Michael's. I colored it with Copics and added the "pearls" in the centers with a Pearl Pen. The embossing on the green layer was done with a Sizzix folder and the purple layer was embossed with a Swiss Dots folder. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. The edge of the purple piece was done with a Martha Stewart punch. I also added a bow.
For this one, I used a Technique Tuesday stamp for my main image. I used the Swiss Dots folder for all the white layers. The sentiment is again from PTI and the decorative edge was again done with a Martha Stewart punch. The butterfly is also a Martha Stewart punch, and I added pearls for the body.


Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

I like the layout on both of the cards! They are very pretty! You made the image on the one look like it was more than a dollar stamp!

Gorgeous, Lynette. I love the use of the embossed papers, and I especially love the purple flowers and butterfly one. What is a Pearl Pen?
