sketch 21 Birthday Blessings

This morning Beate Johns put out a challenge to use the CR84FN18 color challenge and do some cyber stamping with her.  I was planning on stamping so I stepped up to the challenge.  I'm putting my best cheating effort first LOL.

See, this card was originally for the Paper Crafts Go-To Sketches call and I didn't have the yellow panel on it.  I decided that it would look great with the yellow and so added that as well as re-layered the flowers.  So I recycled it just a little.  I like how this looks so much more but apologize for the terrible lighting.

Sketch 21 from Go-to Sketches August 2011

Supplies used:
Stamps: Blessings & One Person from Verve Stamps 
Cardstock: Terracotta Tile, Kraft and Dark Chocolate from Papertrey Ink, Golden Tiara from Clear & Simple Stamps
Inks: Dish All the Dirt Brown, Copic R21 & R24, Y35, W1, YG95 & YG97 
Accessories: Dimensionls and Sakura pen, distressing tool


Now to the first card I created which I don't love, but was rushing and that was part of the problem (that and the kids are bouncing off the walls right now).

I used the CPS108 sketch which is sponsored by The{Stamps}of Life this week.  


Just didn't come out how I envisioned it.  It's not terrible, but not my best creation.

Card details:
Stamps: Banners4All, Greetings4Birthday both from The{Stamps}of Life
Cardstock: Confetti White, Kraft and Terracotta Tile
Inks: Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie, Dish all the Dirt Brown, Copic RY18
Accessories: twine behind the banner.
