CTS#168 and Fusion



Hi everyone!!!!



Oh, boy, it's been weeks since I last played at CAS(E) this Sketch!!!!  This is the lovely sketch for the week:


 

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




The cute die cut kites was a gift from the very sweet Michele from I card Everyone.  Michele sent me the most beautiful card and she slipped a few die-cut words and these kites, into the envelope!!!!  Thanks again, Michele!!!
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Fly high...'





The next card is one to link at the Fusion Card Challenge Blog.


I was inspired by the bright colours in the photo and flipped the sketch upside down to make this card:


Flower dies from MFT.  Flourish stamp from PTI.




That will be it for this morning!!!!  Thanks for spending some time with me - your visits and comments are always appreciated!!!!

Behalwe dat dit 2 ongelooflike mooi kaartjies is... moet ek net iets sê oor daai asemrowende agtergrond... veral die 2e een!
Ek verlang!!!

Two very lovely cards Petra my friend!! I love those sweet kites on that first card and the wonderful CAS design of it and the second with it's eye catching, bright flowers just pop! It's lovely to see that you are managing to combine two art forms here, card making and photography!! Have a lovely weekend my friend! Hazel xx

What a fantastic way of introducing color and designer paper in your kites, Miss Petra! The "airborne" strings look great the way you have adhered them! Lovely card!

Oooooh! Your African shore line is simply incredible, isn't it? We are flat here, and very lime-sandy-porous ground. Your card is delightful! Love the little flower half tucked behind the sentiment, and the beautiful black vine behind your colorful, dimensional flower! Beautiful in every way!

Hope you are enjoying a wonderful week-end. hugs, de

Love that sweet double kite card, Petra. The light blue panel mimics the sky wonderfully. This is just a sweet, fun card! And what a great take on the Fusion inspiration. You've nailed this, and I can see a winner here! Well, both of them actually! Gorgeous cards. Hope you have a great weekend too. Bev

Fabulous cards, Petra! The kites are such a great use of the sketch and I just love those bright and cheerful flowers!

Jen Mitchell said...

Hi Petra!! Oh those kites look gorgeous flying above your gorgeous ocean! They've found the most beautiful home, and seem to be right at home. I love your colorful blooms, and stunning card for Fusion, as well, my friend!

Both cards are fabulous, but I am drawn to the pop of color one - especially with that gorgeous background of the beach!

Karen Ashbrook said...

Two gorgeous cards and great inspiration as always. Those kites look ready to fly away! Karen x

MaryH said...

The kites just have such an air of lightness & fun...such a clean crisp design. Loving the slanted stripes too, with the pops of hot flower colors. Both are terrific designs. Gorgeous work. TFS & Hugs

So kreatief, Petra. Hou van die beweging wat die twine in die eerste kaartjie gee en die tweede is so vrolik met die helder kleure.
Mooi bly

Angie said...

Oh! Your kites are so much fun!!! I always love CTS!! Love the bright colors for your fusion card and oh what fun staging!!! Hugs to you my friend!! Sorry, it's been so long since I have visited.

Pat said...

What a lovely gift from Michelle and the kites look great on that pastel blue background Petra, then your lovely bright and pretty flowers with the diagonal stripes in the background work beautifully, I love that flourish stamp too. x

Anita in France said...

Michele's such a sweetie, Petra ... you've worked your usual magic with those light and airy kites ... love that sense of drifting movement from the tails! Fabulous, vibrant blooms ... brilliant with the boldness of the diagonal stripe sentiment! Hugs, Anita :)

Monika/Buzsy said...

Such pretty cards Petra. Love the kites on the first one... what a great take on the sketch. The flowers are so pretty on the second. Love the layers and the colors... the touch of black in the middle of the flowers with the bling look great.

Chrissy Larson said...

These are gorgeous, Petra! I love those kites.

Joyce said...

You can see that I am so very far behind on my comments. Love these two beauties. The kites look like they could fly right off the page, anchored only by their sentiment, and your next card is so bright and bold.

Katie Ann Brooks said...

fun job with the sketch, sooooo pretty! Thank you for sharing at Fusion! Oh and envous of your view! :)

cm said...

A charming duo, Petra! Love the sense of 'freedom' your kites and paper combination evokes. How sweet of Michele to send these to you; she creates the best little packages, doesn't she! Your florals, anchored on either side of the diagonal panel, are eye-catching marvelous! Pretty, plus happening here!
hugs~c

I know this is going to sound elementary but how do you get such crisp black stamped images.. Mine seem to washout like I said earlier you own black and do it so tastefully. The color combo of the flowers are beautiful.. The placement of the black sentiment is so well done visually connecting the colorful flowers.. I just love it Petra.. We need to hangout..

Shawna Standish said...

oops forgot your kite card.. So subtle and light. just like an actual kite.. You captured the feeling of flying a kite to a tee my friend!! Love the colors and an interesting interpretation of the sketch.. When I saw it I didn't know how to take it. I guess it took an awesome creative mind to think of this beauty.. Great card.. Okay hopping along.
