2 Sketches & a PaperTrey Challenge

I normally don't do two card posts in one day! usually I am lucky to get one made, uploaded, and posted. Since it is Saturday I must be doing a little better :)

The first card is for the 2 sketches challenge this week! I am no longer trying to hide my obsession with the Swiss dots folder, I will just proudly display the fact that I am obsessed with it and go on! The rest of the supplies are Stampin Up cardstock, American Crafts Ribbon, and Yellow Bicycle paper. I love the black flower, it took me forever to find a black one in all my stuff, and I am not even sure who made it!

The next card is for the PaperTrey Ink challenge as part of the countdown to their 2 year anniversary! I used mostly the same colors and just went with the PaperTrey sketch. I did go ahead and add scallops to the edges of this card though, because I liked the way they looked on the 2 sketches card. I used my snowflake additions stamps from PTI and the snowflake punches that coordinate with them. We have had so much snow here lately, I thought some pink snowflakes might be nice for a change! I stickled the middle of the snowflakes for some shine and the brads are sugar coated brads!

We are going to see Toby Keith in concert tonight and I am soooo excited!! Maybe I'll even have a picture to share tomorrow :)

God Bless You,
