Two For One

Hello everyone,

You would think, having taken yesterday off, I would have managed to make a card. Things rather got away from me. I'll make up for it today. I love sketch challenges that inspire me to make multiple cards and yesterday's Clean & Simple Stamping sketch challenge was just such a sketch.

The card base is Recollections in vanilla. The background paper is Martha Stewart Heirloom. The focal layer is BasicGrey Wisteria. Both of which are textured with Sizzix Flourish and highlighted with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Dazzzling Diamonds. The sentiment is Stampabilities Changes Everything. The embellishments are Hero Arts Pearls.

The card base is Recollections in white. The background layer is Close To My Heart Hollyhock. The focal layer is BasicGrey Porcelain which is textured with Sizzix Pattern 1. The sentiment is Hero Arts Thoughtful Messages embellished with Hero Arts Pearls.
I just love both of these cards. I know I could probably make another dozen cards with the same sketch and different themes. We'll see how the rest of my weekend goes.
This sketch just cried out for BasicGrey paper of which I'm such a huge fan. It also suits Hero Arts pearl embellishments perfectly. I've used the pearls on the Hero Arts sentiment and you'd think they were made for one another.
I hope you enjoy these cards and come back to SPI again soon.
