Hi everyone!!!

I've got two cards to share this morning!!!!  Both cards were inspired by the current sketch over at the CAS(E) this Sketch Blog.
This is the sketch:

and the first card I made:

I've sponged the tags with DIs and heat embossed the swirl and butterfly with clear EP.  The tags are price tags that I've bought at a local stationary shop.
Swirl stamp from PTI.
Butterfly stamp from Crafty Individuals.
Small circle stamp from Altenew.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.
The one tag looks as if it's not neatly lined up with the swirl on the card front, but that's because of the angle at which I photographed the card and the fact that I've slightly curled up the bottom corners of the tags.

On the second card I have taken it a bit too far to link at the challenge - don't think this will go through as a  CAS card!!!!
This is what my card looks like:

Flowers hand punched.
Chevrons cut with Tim Holtz Chevron die.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.

OK, I'll leave you with that for now!!!  Thanks so much for spending some time with me!!!

Have a great day!!!

Your cards are beautiful, Petra! I like the tags that you found at the stationery store! Lovely butterfly stamp! I also love the way the stamped/embossed design continues off the tags and onto the card on the first one! The second card is beautiful too - I like your design!

These are so pretty! Wonderful takes on the sketch!

Oh, so pretty!!! I love your tags and butterfly! Beautiful stamping!! I really want to try this sketch! Such fun!

Geri said...

Personally, I think your second card is definitely CAS. Tons of white space and a neat & tidy focal point works!

Two more fab creations Petra! Price tags - you go your resourcefulness! I REALLY love the vertical black enamel dot 'line' on your second card...creates beautiful 'movement' to your design.
