PTI Anniversary Sketch Celebrations!

I think I will make the other sketches too, but this afternoon I made a set of gift cards with three of the Anniversary Sketches Nicole shared.  I really wanted to use some of my new Kraft cardstock.  I just purchased it for the first time, as I was using up some of what I had first.  I am delighted with the richness of the color.  I chose to pair it up with some Marina Mist from SU, for what I think is a pretty combination.
Sketch number one is a Sympathy card.

I stamped the sentiment from Botanical Silhouettes, and then used my plaid impressions plate for texture.  I stamped the small squares with the smaller leaf image from Harvest Berries.  The are attached with foam squares, so I could tuck in a spray of the ginkgo leaves and a Kraft button.

Next up is Sketch #2.  For this one, I made a fast and easy masculine birthday card, using Heather's free download image.  Wow, I love this image!  If there is more of this style to come ~ whoo hoo!!

I used some heavier twine to tie off my cut edges, and three mini buttons underneath, since the sentiment was already on the image panel.

Last, is sketch #5.  I had fun stamping the flowers from Funky Flowers across the bottom.  The I used some white embossing powder to make the white centers.  I used the double ended banner die for the sentiment from Quilled Elegance.  And do you know what's on the ends?  Dew Drops!  Yeah, I remember when they first came out, and how I couldn't wait to have them.  Sometimes it's fun to pull out an oldie, but goodie!!

Thanks for all the fabby sketches Nicole, and thanks for stopping by!
