Winter and Summer...

Hi Everyone! today's cards are from a sketch challenge at The Fresh Batch there having the guest designer shout out and they haven't made there announcement yet.. so keep your fingers still crossed for me. I had fun making these cards but wow talk about a challenge, this sketch was another tough one for me. :) Lovin it though.hehe
The first cards base is from SU, it was a actual baby blue but I wanted the glittery snowy effect so I added Angel Wingz from Shimmerz all over the card. I used my punch for the snowflake, the snowflakes are made using DP from My Mind's Eye. The snowflake buttons and rhinestones are all from CTMH. The Dec sentiment is also from CTMH. The ribbon is from my "stash"...................
The second card features an image from I believe... Stampendous I think my friend Tammy sent me this image. :) isn't it so cute? I also believe it's from the Changito line... The card base is from SU (Rich Razzleberry) with all the flowers from Prima. My wonderful fabulous dew drops are in the middle of all the flowers. The ribbon is from my "stash". NOW this card is missing something with that big empty spot on the left hand side but for the life of me I can't come up with something to put there, so I'll ask everyone here..what does it need????? tell me..LOL! well I hope the fresh batch ladies like my cards.... stay tuned for tomorrow's card I have another story for you about the card..hehe...
Thank You!!! Come Again!!!

  4. Ilike both cards very much too. However, to answer your question I think it looks good how it is; but, since you (we) love those dew drops soooo much mayby a little cluster, or how about just rounding out the top left corner and bottom right corner?? I don't know!!! You asked the wrong person (Me) lol.

  5. Wow, I hope you get the designer gig!! I'll keep everything I've got crossed for you, but you don't need luck, you've got TALENT!!!!!!! I love both of the cards and I think your snowflake take on the sketch is brilliant. :o)

  6. ooh, I just saw Agustina's post and I like her suggestion a cluster of three little dew drops in the upper left corner would do the trick!!! :o)

  7. oh mandy... wow... wow... wow... I just love the shimmerz you added on the first one... it makes for a super elegant card... and then who doesn't love changuito.

    Thanks for playing with us at Stamps and Smiles! And remember we just uploaded our new sketch today!
