Kenny K's Challenge #7 - Sketch

This week KK has this great Sketch by Donna. I so love these stamps and this is one of the new ones that I just bought. I don't usually do hair color in the blacks thinking that they will turn out looking old and gray but I think this one works. I found these great papers in my stash from Basic Gray and went with the green. I hope you like it.

Stamps: Kenny K, Amuse
Paper: SU basic black, barely banana, DP Basic Gray
Embellishments: punches, copic, pearls and gems

Thanks for lookin'

Nutty Nutshells Challenge #23/Friday Sketch #116

Here is a great new image from Nutcrafters. Just in time for Back to School. I came upon these colors by accident. I was picking out what colors to do and there they were. I love the red and Baja breeze together. Nutshells Challenge this week is School Days and their is a great prize so make sure to stop on over and join in the fun!
I also use a sketch from this weeks Friday Sketch. I think it worked out great with this one. I don't really have any school kids of my own but I am stocking up cards for a craft sale and hope that this one will do well.

Stamps: Nutcrafters, Amuse
Paper: SU baja breeze, DP-Basic Grey
Embellishments: Letter stickers, copics


Missed It!

I am calling this card, missed it, because I missed the challenge. Made this card last week and missed the challenge by a day. I thought it was so cute I would share it anyway, so here it is.
