OWH Sketch #169

 
     Today is sketch day over on the Stars and Stamps Blog.  This weeks sketch is sponsored by Doodle Pantry.  I just happen to a a few Doodle Pantry images, so I got to work creating a couple of cards.  It was a fun sketch to work with.

 
     My first card uses a pre-colored, DP image, Called Happy Birdie.  I also found a cute DP sentiment that worked well.  My papers are all from the scrap bin.  I used Spellbinders dies to cut out my images, and added a K&Co. flower as one of my circles.


     Card two uses papers also from my stash and a turtle image from Doodle Pantry called Turtle
Hello, as well as one of their sentiment.  My embellishments were from Stampin Up!  hardware.

     I just realized I totally ignored the little ruffled edge on the bottom of the sketch.  Grrrr!  Wherever did that come from?

     It was a pretty day today, here in PA.  Hope you got to do something enjoyable.  See you soon.

Both cards are super cute, but I like the turtle the best. Probably because my nickname as a kid was Turtle. Boy, I'm really spilling secrets lately, aren't I? lol
Also, how in the world did you color that lakeside cottage stamp? Yours look gorgeous and I don't know where to start.
