CTS#133 and FMS#196

Hi everyone!!!!

Taking part in two challenges this afternoon!!!
First up is the sketch challenge over at the CAS(E) this Sketch Blog.
This is the sketch to play with:

and this is the card I've made:

Done my bg with paint splatters and a bg polka dot stamp from Glitz
Daisy die from MFT.
Finished it off with rhinestones and black plastic dots.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.

I will be linking this card to my friend, Mynn Kitchen's Blog, too.  She is celebrating 5 years of blogging and has a give-away with some lovely prizes.  Hop over to her blog, On a Stampage and have a look.

It's been some time since I last joint in the fun over at the Freshly made Sketches Blog.
This is the sketch:

and the card I've made to link at the challenge:


Image stamp from Glitz.
Flower die from Couture Creations.  Flourish die from MFT.
Sentiment computer generated.
Added some inksplatters at the top and black plastic dots to complete the picture.

We had a lovely day today, but it's becoming very cold at the moment and they have forecasted some very heavy rain for us for tonight.  Hope we will be OK and not have floods!!!

Time to prepare supper here!!!  Not really in the mood for that!!!

Thank you so much for spending some time with me - hope you enjoyed your visit!!!!

Jy het die CTS so vars en vrolik laat lyk. Die blommetjies lyk pragtig met die verf spatsel agtergrond!
Ek is mal oor die voeltjie tema van jou FMS kaartjie.

All right! You must be warmed up in your craft room. You are on a roll! :) Beautiful cards Petra. Love the scattered flowers in different colors on the first one. The paint splatters look wonderful. The little bird in the cage is so pretty. Very elegant with the creamy yellow, black and white. Awesome take on the sketch. Also love the 2 different hues on the flower. The flourishes are perfect.

These are both FABULOUS, Petra! LOVE all the gorgeous colors you added to the first with those flowers! The neutrals in the second really help accent the beautiful image! HUGS! :) Mynn xx

Love the birdcage card especially. Super colour combination and the die cuts are perfect!

Anita in France said...

What an elegant birdcage, Petra ... beautifully accented with that delicate bloom! Love your colourful scattering of flowers ... colourful, fun and with a great sense of energy! Have a great weekend! Anita :)

Vicki Dutcher said...

Fabulous cards - I adore the FMS one. It is so fun having you back playing in blogland :)

Kim S said...

The birdcage is such an elegant image - LOVE the die cut accent piece you have created for it. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

Loved BOTH of these cards, but have to fess up that #1 might possibly be my fav. Bet it cheered you up if it's cold & rainy, because it just looks airy & springtime. It's just a delightful interpretation of the sketch & looks so fun. #2 was equally lovely, but with a more elegant feel. Again, you've aced the sketch challenge. Hope no problems ensue with the flooding. Wish I could send you along some of the hot summer sunshine I have just now to warm you up! TFS & have a great wkend

Two gorgeous cards. I particularly like how you've interpreted the CTS sketch. Karen x

2 gorgeous cards, Petra. Love how you clustered your little flowers and dots around the sentiment on the first card, and the clean lines of your second card. Your bird cage is set off so well on the gold and black, and those splatters up top keep that white space from feeling too empty. Thanks so very much for all the comments you left me the other day. Gosh, I felt to special and it seems like you must have spent your entire day just looking at my blog and writing nice comments.

Jen Camara Mitchell said...

Beautiful cards as always Petra! You have such a way of combining layers and adding details. I am so envious of your creativity!

Gisela said...

Darnell said...

I really adore the bird cage card, too!! Hugs, Darnell (PS thank you for all your wonderful comments on my recent cards!! Mwah!!)

Karren said...

Fabulous cards! The colors in the birdcage card work so well together and I love the flourish. Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

These are pretty, Petra! I especially like the dancing flowers on the first card! Xo

Geri said...

Creativity lives here! Two more amazing card! Adore the simplicity of your first card and the whimsical splattered background!

Your second card boasts more yummy splatters and another really cool design with a fabulous image! Love how you divided the enamel dots on each side of the sentiment...3 on one side, 1 on the other...a very nice unpredictable and very effective change!
