A couple of cameos

Just a couple of cameo cards I made today. I'm not really a cameo kind of girl, but I do really like these images on cards at the minute!

This first card is for SC365 for the sketch and Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #104 to use Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip and Crumb Cake - what a gorgeous combo this is! Love my pinks and browns together! Do you like my little doily-esque layer behind my sentiment? This is the result of a happy accident when I was making a card for a workshop back in November. I punched two of the triple layer doily punches and cut them in half, trimmed off a little bit that was sticking out and stuck them to the back of the 1 3/8" circle punch. I think it's looks really effective! And those little flourishes above and below the sentiment are the top little bit from the big flourish from the Bliss set. I love these little flourishes, but SU don't ever seem to have them in their sets, like PTI do, so a bit of masking tape helped the job along!

My next card is for Card Patterns Sketch Challenge #146 and ColourQ Challenge #117 to use Basic Black, White and 1 other colour of choice. Instead of my usual pink, I went with purple for a change and totally love how this card came out. I love damask prints and adore that dinner set, so just had to put some on my card as well.

And that's all for this post folks. Thanks for stopping by!
