A Couple of Cards

So this week at Simon Says Stamps challenge is a fabulous sketch from Dawny and the DT is showcasing Lawn Fawn stamps not a requirement to enter the challenge just wanting to show what amazing goodies Simon Says Stamps sell.
Now this is the challenge that Jo and I simply forgot that there was a sketch involved and got carried away and made a card forgetting the sketch. You can find mine here I used it for another challenge.
So this time I made the flower with the Lawn Fawn stamps and using distress inkpads Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick. I made a complete mess of the Martha Stewart border so thats why there's posts in my fence and then discovered Tilda was a bit big for the sketch so I cut the border to make a gate. Yes hidden at the top is the deep edge doily punch and the swirls are EK sucess punches.

Now before I show the other card I made not using the sketch cos I was have so much fun making up the flowers.

For the second year in a row the Simon Says Stamp and Show & the Simon Says Stamp Challenge are joining forces to celebrate the approaching fall and winter holidays. Be sure to come back on August 31st, (MN Ohio Time, 6 pm CET ) to start the hop. It will run through to September 5th. Simon Says Stamp is offering a FANTASTIC GRAND PRIZE , and there will be other opportunities to win some hidden treasure too ! So make a note in your diaries and make sure you are here to join in the FUN !! :-)

I decided to make a CAS card this time. First I embossed the image in gold embossing powder and used the white for the flowers, this was so the swirls were gold. The single sheet of pattern paper is Basic Grey so I guess I can enter it in the Anything goes at the Basic Grey Challenges.
Meanwhile back to Simon Says Stamps don't forget to join us Dawny's sketchs are brilliant and so easy to use and there's a fabulous prize for one lucky winner but you do have to in it to win.
