4.5 You are Appreciated

Hi All! Here's a fun card I made for the CaseStudy #185 challenge and also I will submit to Paper Smooches Guest Designer search for May since I exclusively used her stamps and dies on this card.

I placed the vase dies on patterned paper. I positioned it where I thought the paper pattern would look nice on the vase. I taped it on the paper to prevent it from moving.   I also used a very light grey Copic marker to add some shading on the left side of the vases. The swirl is the window of a diecut with paper behind it.

Here is the inspiration taken from Case Study #185

I took a black scratch paper and colored it with gold Wink of  gold and put it behind the swirl die cut.

Wish me luck in winning a designer guest spot for Paper Smooches

Materials used: 
Stamps: Paper Smooches (Botanicals 1) (Many Thanks)
Dies: Paper Smooches (Crystal Clear 3) (Flourishes 1)
Paper: Fancy Pants Design (Park Bench)
Wink of Stella (Gold)(Clear)

4.4 Retrosketches #108 - You Are Loved

Hello everyone,

I wanted to create a card before I left for work. This card took me about 10 minutes to make.

I used Tim Holtz's Distress Inks to color the diecut leaves.

First time to use my sewing machine on a card. 
I had to repair a favorite comforter and the sewing machine was left out..... so this is the result. 
Pretty good. Maybe a smaller needle might look better on the card. 

I played along with retrosketches challenge. I hope you like my card!
Thanks for stopping by!

Materials Used:
Mama Elephant: Love from Above
Ink: Mememento, Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Dies: Memory Box, Large Marianna
