Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge #104

Good evening

Wow another week and here we are in the middle of January.  How time goes by when your having fun.

This was a fun sketch -- at first I had a hard time finding stamps that would fit in the squares -- I found most of my stamps are a bit too big.  I will be on the lookout for some stamps that would be suitable for future challenges.  While looking through my stash of stuff I was lucky to find some butterfly stickers to use on a second card.

I also finished up a card from last weeks sketch challenge -- this card is for both the Wednesday's Floral Fantasy Challenge  and the January ODBD Challenge.

Thanks for taking the time to stop in -- hope you have a wonderful week.


The owl card I used stamps from Hero Arts.  I sprayed a little Stampin Up smooch spritz to the kraft card stock.  I also added 3 feathers under the little bow.

This card I used DP from a Colorbok - Rosewood paper pad.  The card stock is from Stampin Up and the butterfly stickers are by Jolee's boutique.

This third card I finished today is from last weeks sketch (103).  I it made for both Wednesday's Floral Fantasy Challenge (make something with flowers) and the January ODDB Challenge (use three different DP).

The DP and the flowers are from K & Company.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

Thanks again for stopping in.

All your cards are lovely, the owls are hooting and the butterflies are fluttering. Beautiful. Nicely done.

I love the owls! the feathers are a really clever touch. :) The butterfly stickers are perfect on that card... awesome!

The feathers are such an interesting touch. On the second card, I love the stickers- they look so dimensional I don't think they really look like stickers. The last card is my favorite because of its subtle color palette. Thanks for sharing!

Fabulous cards! The feathers on the owl card are a nice touch and those butterflies don't look anything like stickers... they're beautiful.

Great cards but I really adore the yellow plaid. Made my crappy day just looking at it. AHHHHH! TFS!!!

More great cards! I have noticed your use of feathers on some other cards you have made before and I have always really liked them. They look great on your owl card too. I like the butterfly card also. Jolee stickers have some beautiful images, and the butterflies you picked out are gorgeous!

I love your Floral Fantasy card with the pretty plaid. It goes excellently with the daisies. (I have some of those in my stash, now that I think of it!) It's always fun to come to your site and see what you have been up to! Thanks for playing in our Midweek Throwdown challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps!
