Using my stash - Take 2

Goodmorning everyone!  Hope you had a fabulous Saturday night ;)  So I'm going to show you my 2nd take with the wonderful sketch from Fetch a sketch.

I had so much fun using my stash for the 1st card that I decided to do the same for the next one.  I was also inspired by the challenge over at Casual Friday to do a Christmas card in under 10 minutes.  Well if the paper is already in my stash and it's a simple sketch that's a breeze.  Plus it meant that I finally used a big flower that I had and had not been able to use so far.  Plus I now have a few Christmas cards for next year lol

So here it is:
So the paper is from my stash as is the big flower.  The ribbon was on one of the gift that I got at Christmas love to reuse!!!  The sentiment is from Create with tlc.  I had a bunch that I had pre-printed and not used so this was just perfect:
For this card I followed this sketch:

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Fetch-a-sketch - Sketch
  2. Cas-ual fridays - the 10 minute dash
  3. Fab n funky challenges - Ribbon and or lace
  4. Hotshot craft - CAS
So I hope you all have a fabulous Sunday!  See you back tomorrow ;)

Using up my stash - Take 1

Hello Everyone!  Hope you had a wonderful Saturday!  I was busy crafting!!!!  I made a lot of cards for my upcoming DT work ;)  This way I will not be stressed with deadlines.  I really do hate deadlines with a passion.

I've been wanting to participate at Fetch a Sketch and I had a great idea!  Well I think it's great lol and I got to use all kinds of left overs that I had.

For this card I used some left over papers in my scrap pile and some ribbon that I got on one of my gifts.  The flower was a freebie that I received and it's pretty big... so I didn't  know how to use it but now I figured it's just perfect as the central piece.  I used vintage photo distress ink on the sentiment.

Here's the sketch that I followed:

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Fetch-a-sketch - Sketch
  2. Hotshot craft - CAS
  3. Aud sentiments challenge - use a sentiment
  4. Simon says stamps - Anything goes
  5. Moving along with the times - thank you card (yup can never have to many of those in stock but in my case need them mostly in French)
  6. Paperplay challenges - out with the old and in with the new (so used all my old stuff ;) )
  7. Sassy studio designs - dare to be Sassy (thank you)
Hope you have liked my card!  I will be back tomorrow with my 2nd one with this sketch :)

Here's a closer look at the digi colored with my copics:
