Playing with Nina's sketch

Hi everyone!  I have a couple cards to share that are for Nina's Blog Anniversary sketch challenge.  I LOVE this sketch, it is actually the same sketch that I used for most of my Christmas cards last year. 

Both of my cards today use the cute paper from October Afternoon, Ducks In a Row and some new goodies I got from PTI!  Love these patterns in this paper and guess what?  The blue in the patterns are a PERFECT match to PTI's new Hawaiian Shores color.  Yep, perfect match!  Happy sigh...  Oh and I just HAD to get these flower dies.  Soooo pretty!  Nicole is pure genius!

This first card uses a sentiment from Ippity's Regal Greetings set.  I used some of my fav 3/8" velvet ribbon and Split Pea rhinestones, both of which match Old Olive very nicely!


This next card uses a sentiment from PTI's Birthday Basics and a piece of crocheted trim from Webster's Pages.


Thanks for stopping by and have a great evening.
