Sharing Some Old Stuff on Sunday

Just a few more cards I made today all using old retired patterned paper packs from SU...

This first one is for Just Add Ink's Challenge #110 for the sketch, SUO Challenge #41 to make a spring themed card (nothing says spring like flowers and butterflies!) and for Friday Mashup's Challenge #51 to use the quilted technique and/or old stash. I used my almost full pack of Bella Rose DSP, which wasn't out over here in the UK and by the time I got my hands on a pack, it had retired! It is still a really beautiful pack of papers though.

My next card is for Card Patterns Sketch Challenge #158, Totally Tilda's Challenge #43 to use a Tilda holding a flower and Just Magnolia's Challenge #149 to use more than one fold. I went for the easy option and did an easel card. trying to use up some more old DSP as well and dug out this gorgeous pack of Ginger Blossom. I do enjoy going back and finding old stuff again!


Recipe:

And my final card for today uses yet another old pack of DSP; this time Island Oasis which I have hardly touched! This one is for The Greeting Farm Sketch Challenge #9. I just used the colours from the DSP.

And that's all for today folks! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Vannessa, I like the way you've interpreted the JAI sketch - the butterflies and sentiment look great as the three vertical elements! Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week.
