2 cards------Penny Black saturday and saturday sketch challenge

Hello and thanks for visiting my blog today! I have two cards to show you today.
The first one was made for this weeks sketch saturday challenge. What an awesome sketch!
The image I used is from the Digital Stamp Oasis. I like to print several images at a time and keep them in the box with my swapped images. It was colored with copics. The designer paper is from Basic Grey's "Eva" collection. I embellished with prima flowers and a cuttlebug die, stickles and martha stewart lace border punch. I used my sewing machine to stitch around the edge. The sentiment is from Stampin Up's upsy daisy set.

I made this second card for this weeks Penny Black Challenge. "Easter" is the theme. I received this cute image from a swap. Again, it was colored with copics. I used the same sketch again, since it is so gorgeous and super fun to work with. The card is super simple too, I cut out the image and adhered it to a nesties circle. The card front was embossed with my cuttlebug folder. I embellished with prima flowers and brad and added a little bit of stickles to the flowers and the sentiment.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog. And be sure to check out this post for a sketch and some blog candy to win. Only a few days left to enter!!
Ellie.

I like the smiling squirrel image. That's how I feel when I get my mail and find a homemade card in it. I think the bunny image is really cute and I like all the sparkle.
