More Random Cards

Good Morning Everyone!

The cards I have to share with you today are just two that I put together on a whim. They aren't for any particular challenge. The top one is a 4 1/4 square card. I started with a Chocolate Chip base and the pattern papers are from Basic Grey's Indian Summer collection. I used Label 1 Nestabilities for the center panels. The sentiment is from OCL's "Say it Big" and the flower in the bottom corner is from OCL's "Fabulous Florals." I colored it in with Copic Markers E04, R32 and R34. Easy peasy...took about 30 minutes to complete.
The second card also uses a Chocolate Chip base. I put a piece whisper white matted on to a piece of Sage Shadow towards the top of the card. I added a strip of Kraft card stock which I punched with my Fiskars scalloped edge punch and then I layered Brocade Blue at the bottom that I ran through my CB with the swirls embossing folder. I wrapped a piece of Choc Chip grosgrain ribbon around the front as well. The sentiment in the center along with the swirly looking cut out piece are from Little Yellow Bicycle's "Friends" set. I stamped the "UR" in Memento Cocoa ink and the "treasured" in Brocade Blue. The swirl was stamped in sage shadow and then cut out. I added a prima flower with an antique copper brad in the center and adhered it to the front of the card with a stampin' dimensional. Finally, I drew the line of faux white stitching around the top half of the card.
Ok, so I hope you like these. Drop me a line and let me know what you think! Have a great day!
