Sketchabilities Sketch Challenge #122

Hey everyone! 
It's been also a long time since I've participated at a sketch challenge, but it's finally the time to do that again :) I created this layout for the Sketchabilities Sketch challenge #122. 

For the background I used a DCWV paper from the tea party stack. For the newsprint behind the stacked photo mats I glued down some tissue paper by Papermania with mod podge. After that I gave the background a few spritzes with 13arts mist in pink and Dylusions mist in bubblegum pink. After that I used a damask mask and some texture paste for more texture. To emphasize this texture I used Inka Gold in rose and rubbed lightly onto the paper with my fingers. 

For the embellishment I used wood veneers by Studio Calico, sugar dots by Prima Marketing and different washi tapes by MME.

I cut out the bird cages of one of the papers from the stack and glued them to background by using foam dots. Besides, I distressed all the edges of the photo mats and inked them with Distress ink. 

And that's their cool sketch I used: 

Thank you everyone for stopping by, and have a great weekend!

Playful Balloon Card

Hi everyone, 
I have another cute card to share with you. I followed a tutorial by Karen Giron for a MFT challenge to create that card (click here to see her blog and her tutorial).

For this card I used the Maggie Holmes 6x6 collection by Crate Paper. I just love the soft clouds with a hint of light pink for the background. I inked all the edges of the balloons after I glued them together. The butterflies are some free Printables which I printed at home on medium weight cardstock and which I cut out. You can find the butterflies here. To finish the card, I added a stamped sentiment on white cardstock, used a little bit of Stickles here and there and glued three pieces of yarn to card to create the string of the balloons. That's it! 

Thank you so much for stopping by, have a nice weekend!

Shabby Wedding Card

Hey Scrappers,
 I know I've posted only a very few new projects lately, but I've been just too busy to load them up. I created quiet a lot and I'm going to post more stuff in the upcoming weeks. Today I'd like to share a shabby wedding card with you. I was browsing a lot of time on Pinterest and found a super awesome designer Dorota MK. Click here to visit her blog. My project is a scraplift of one of her cards. 

I used different patterned papers and cardstock in cream and light brown for a vintage look. I distressed the edged of my mat and stitched a boarder with yarn. I die cut two branches with a Sizzix die and embellished the card with withe Prima flowers. Then I cut out a scalloped heart and made a boarder with Liquid Pearls in Bisque. The heart on top is covered with crackle accents and inked up with Distress ink for an even more shabby look. I created a 3d banner by folding a long strip of paper and wrote the sentiment by hand. 

I hope you like my creation and thank you so much for stopping by!
