A Couple of Quick Thank Yous

Just a couple of quick thank you cards I made this weekend.

This first card is for Viva La Verve's Sketch #2 for January and Create with Connie and Mary's Challenge #236 to use the gorgeous colour combo below. My sentiment was a little too small for the Labels Framelit so I cut it apart, stuck it back together so it was smaller, curved the middle edges, drew round it all, cut it out and now it fits perfectly! Love how you can chop die cuts up and rearrange them to fit what you want!


And here's my card.

I used the same thank you sentiment from the gorgeous Perfectly Penned SU set for this card for Inkspirational's Challenge #4 for the sketch and ColourQ's Challenge #173 to use these lovely soft colours. Thought I would pull out my retired Spiced Paisley set for this one as well as I haven't used it in a while and I was feeling inspired by that pretty skirt!

 

And here's my card.

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