Shall we start?
Heather's Sketch: I made a baby card, to be honest I struggled with the sketch, I don't know if I really like this card, maybe because I like to add a lot of layers and use my sewing machine, but at the end I convinced myself the card is pretty :)
The images I used are from "Oh Baby" by Gina K. Designs. The white shape was made using my Cricut machine and "A Child's year" cartridge.
Card Stock: Pure Luxury White, Lemon Drop, Innocent Pink (All Gina K.)
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Real Red.

Modified Retiform Technique: I really like this card, :) For the technique I used Pretty in Pink (SU) and Desert Sand (Memento Ink). I followed the video step by step, it is very easy!! For the BG I used smARTworks stamps: "Stella" and "Weave" . The sentiment is from "Inside & Out" by Gina K. Designs. The scallop shape was cut using my Cricut Machine and "A child's year" cartridge. I added some Satin ribbon and tiny pearls.
I played the sketch challenge from Paper Crafts Connection Blog

I made this card few days ago following "A Year in Cards" tutorial I found on Kristina Werner's blog. She has awesome tutorials and her cards are always so much fun!
The tutorial shows 3 different cards, but I just made 1, maybe later I will make the rest :)
I used smARTworks stamps, the inside is the pocket for a pair of earrings I bought to send to my sister!! I hope she likes this card.
Have a great day!!

Hello my friends. I hope you are having a great Sunday. I have been kind of busy today, but after cleaning and organizing stuff, I decided to take a break and make a card! Woo-hoo!! Today I am playing the SPCC challenge, this week colors have been a little hard for me, I have tried all week to make a card with these colors, sat down, move papers around and at the end I gave up, but today I decided no more giving up, so I just played with my paper again and I think I got a good card.
My card base is So Saffron, the blue part is Night of Navy. I matted a piece of Pumpkin Pie and some Patterned Paper I have in my scrap pile. I stamped the praying hands in White CS using Memento Rich Cocoa. I matted this piece with some Pumpkin Pie as well. I added some Blue Ribbon and a button (just the same color as Brilliant Blue!
The sentiment was stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa.
Images are from smARTworks "Prayer Set"
Hope you like it.
Have a great day/night.
