Hello Deer!

This is my weekly post of sketch challenges. This first sketch is from Our Creative Corner. I liked the elegance of the sketch and decided to go with a more serious theme, so I chose to make a sympathy card. I never have them when I need them. The patterned paper is from CTMH's Emporium. The cardstock is Chocolate and Crystal Blue with some SU Craft Paper. I used my Cuttlebug Birds & Swirls Embossing Folder and Nestabilities Scalloped Oval Die. The other ovals are cut using the Creative Memories System. The Butterfly Punch is from Martha Stewart. I've been dying to use it and finally got the chance. Yeah! I printed the sentiment on my computer. The butterfly stamp is CTMH's Fluttering Love stamped in Crystal Blue.
This next sketch is Jen's SFYTT. I'm continuing with the serious look. I am trying to get a better variety of cards. It's hard for me to make masculine cards. Even though these colors and stamp are okay for a man, I just had to add a feminine touch with the bow. Couldn't help myself.


This stamp set is from Stampabilities and is simply called Doe & Fawn. So pretty! We see these a lot out on our farm. The babies are so cute. Again, I used Nestabilities Labels 2 and Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes Embossing Folder. The DP is last week's scraps of Paper Studio and CTMH's Chocolate and SU's Craft paper. I left off one embellishment from the sketch, but all that I could think of to put there was a flower, and I didn't think it looked good. Sorry Jen!
Thanks for stopping by!
Johna
