Two cards for three challenges.

I've had a couple of evenings to just enjoy playing along with a few challenges, and have both cards ready to post tonight.  The first is for the Verve blog's May inspiration challenge "Font Focus" so I've used one of my all time fave Verve sets, Words of Wisdom with a few hints of the newer Better Together set stamped around the edges.  I've used the sketch from The Challenge #6 by Lesley Croghan:
 
My second card is using the sketch from the current "Seize the Sketch" challenge, using an Art Impressions Coffee BFF's image:

 
First card: Patterned papers are Baby Jane, Cosmo Cricket; Cardstock is Tulip, CTMH; Inks are Whisper, CTMH and Tuxedo Black, Memento; Stamp sets are Words of Wisdom & Better Together, Verve; Twine is American Crafts.
Second card: Patterned papers are Woodland Park, October Afternoon; Ink is Tuxedo Black, Memento; Copic Markers; Twine is American Crafts; Verve Pennant Trim die.

Both cards are fabulous. Love the stamped edges on the first and your amazing colouring on the second.

Gee, I went by this card a few times on Pinterest and didn't really stop because I didn't recognize the paper. Now I am going through the blogs I follow and well look who created this card...you! Love it!
