Friday Sketch Challenge #8

Here is my DT card for Friday Sketch Challenge, I made it for a wedding I went to recently, it's hard to tell from the photo but white matt layer overhangs the red base card, I was hoping the overhang would be more dramatic, but because I used the whole front of the card it didn't work as I hoped, oh well, I still think it looked good.
This week's challenge will actually run for 4 weeks, so make the most of the Christmas break and have a play along!
Happy Stamping, Merry Christmas!

Stamps: Will come back and edit the recipe later!

Friday Sketchers #7

Another Christening card that I was asked to make by a friend (there were 3 in total so you'll see another one soon!) Do you like the little tag I made for the sentiment? It's a little trick I learnt at Stampin' Up! regionals using circle punches.
I cheated a little with this sketch, I didn't add the little strip up the side, but I was working with a fairly small card (10.5cmx10.5cm), and I couldn't make anything fit, where if I'd used a slightly bigger card I probably could have made it work, so that's a little tip for all of you playing along at home. Speaking of playing along, go check out the Challenge site and make sure you have a go!
