Utah Divas Sketch Challenge #71

dsc71It seems we’ve arrived at another Saturday and yes that means another sketch challenge from the lovely Carol. 

Simple enough hey? and look …. a circle!! I just had to use my Circle Scissor Plus for this challenge and I know I’ve done a few circles lately but I love that Circle Scissor Plus so much and it makes circles so so easy!

DSC71GrassHere’s my first card ….

Yes you read that right … I did say ‘first’ card.

I love the Inspired by Nature Set and wanted to do a ‘grass’ card for a while and hopefully it has a bit of a manly feel to it.

I originally just had the En Francias stamp on the background layer but thought it looked a bit plain. Well my trusty Baroque Motifs helped fix that!

I do hope you like this card – I’m not totally sure about it.

Now while doing it I thought how nice it would be with the flowers from Inspired by Nature so I had to give it a go.

DSC71PlumI’ve missed using my purples of late so grabbed them in the markers to colour the flower direct to the rubber of the stamp.

Its the same as the grass card but just in different colours and using the flower stamp.

I like this second card a lot more than the first however I do feel that some of that can be attributed to the use of eggplant and plum cardstocks and markers.

Now from this week we are doing something a little different with the sketch challenges. Usually I direct you to the Utah Divas blog for the other ladies on the design team however from this week there will be a link at the end of our posts directing you to the next design team member.

So without further a do I am happy to guide you over to Lorie’s blog. I met Lorie through Utah Divas group and since then we’ve become good friends – maybe its the passion we both have for stamping and chocolate – who knows!! Enjoy doing the rounds of the Utah Divas Sketch Challenge Team!

Thanks for stoppin by ….

  1. Oh, Leonie! These are beautiful! I like the 2nd one but that is because I like that set but don’t yet have it. I’m plotting what kind of chocolate to have today already! LOL!

  2. How much do I LURVE both of these cards Leonie?? HEAPS. I am a bit of an easy touch for any card with Baroque Motifs in it and I am a HUGE fan of the background stamp. I love the way the nature stamps ‘balance’ the curly/script aspect. I like the 2nd one but the 1st one is my fave. Thanks for providing the links to the other divas too. Brilliant cards. ooxx
