Another FMS#177 and CTS#114



Hi everyone!!!

Posting two cards this afternoon!!!
First up is another card I've made following Karren's lovely sketch over at the Freshly Made Sketches  Blog.

 
This is my second take on the sketch:





 
 
The pieces of patterned paper are from Teresa Collins and MME.
I've got two vertical scorelines on the black strip - not very clear in the photo.
Can't remember where I got the metal butterfly.
Sentiment cut with Tim Holtz alphabet die.
Some twine and a single black plastic dot round it off.
 
 
 
 
I've also made a card for the current sketch over at the CAS(E) this Sketch Blog. 
 




This is my card:






The flower stamp is from a local craft shop, Great Impressions.
Water coloured the flowers and added some shine with 3d Clear Gloss.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.


That will be it for this Friday afternoon.  Have a great start to your weekend!!!!
Thanks for the visit - hope to see you again soon!!!!

That golden butterfly just stole my heart and I just adore your pops of color on the panel in the second. Once again, you've outdone yourself!

Wow! Gorgeous-ness x 2!!! First card...of course the music sheet is awesome, but it's that single wee black enamel dot that rocks this design! So simple - sooooo effective!

Second card...beautiful pops of color shined up with a bit of gloss! Love the diagonal movement that you created with the placement of the flowers! Fab cards Petra!

Two gorgeous cards! Love that butterfly on your first card, he's so pretty. Love the sheet music paper too. And what a wonderful idea to color/not color your flowers on the second card. It's so out-of-the-box and so much fun. Love it. Two fun cards. Bev

Oh! Great cards, Petra! You always wow me with your use of B&W and popping it with some color. The second card is AWESOME with the frame extended as part of the picture inside. Your musical butterfly is sweet! Hope you are enjoying a wonderful day! hugs, de

Beautiful cards Petra. Love the butterfly with the circles on the first one... the background paper is awesome. Is that a charm butterfly? Can't tell... the spotlight coloring is amazing on the second card. Great take on the sketches. Enjoy your weekend!
