Challenge cards

Hi all! I just wanted to share two of my most recent cards that I made for SCS challenges. I did the technique lovers challenge and of course, the sketch challenge this past week. Here's what I came up with. This first one is from the technique lovers challenge which was all about pleats. The designer paper is from K&Company, and the stamp is from Gina K Designs. It is colored with Copic Ciao Markers in rose red and rose mist. The sentiment is from PTI. As you can see I got out the sewing machine and stitched down the pleats and around the perimeter of the base layer.


This card is from the sketch challenge. All stamps are from The Angel Company and stamped in Palette True Black. The bird is stamped on a piece of cork that is self adhesive (purchased at Michael's) and layered with black. The designer paper is from DCWV Once upon a time. The brown card stock is from AC cardstock. I colored the silver hardware with copper alcohol ink and then added some copper brads to the top left hand corner.

I hope everyone is having a great week!

Love the cork! I have some from TAC that I rarely use, I forget about it! Thanks for inspiring me to get it out and play!

I am with Vicki, I often forget about my cork until I see a wonderful card like this that makes me want to get it out and play. Both of these cards are fantastic.
