CTS #93 and NBUS #2

I'm like a kid in a candy store with all my new goodies.  I can't decide which one to try next.  I've been playing around and made a couple of cards but actually used an older stamp set from Penny Black, the only unused stamp in the set, for this card for the CASE This Sketch challenge.

I love that frame die from SSS and the apple blossoms (or are they dogwood?) fit perfectly inside it.  I used my water brush and Distress Ink to color them and then stamped the stripe with PTI's background Stripe with DI spritzed with water.  For the "dots" on the sketch, I stamped another flower, colored it and cut the petals apart.  I'm really happy with the way it turned out.

Since I used a new stamp, I'm making this my second entry in Darnell's second NBUS challenge.

I'm sure glad you stopped by.  It makes my day to read your comments.


  1. Sweet take on the sketch, Bobby! Isn't it wonderful when products from different companies play so nicely together - and good eye noticing that they did in this case!! Thank you so much for playing again in my NBUS Challenge!! BTW, I was just over visiting Shona from the gallery and I'll will point out to you what I told her. Since you fussy cut those adorable little petals, you should also play in the current challenge at "AAA Cards!" (aaacards.blogspot.com) Hugs, Darnell

  2. So lovely, Bobby ... the soft colours and gently rounded shapes are just gorgeous! Congratulations, BTW, on a double whammy ... winner at CASology and at Muse one the same day ... how fantastic! Anita :)

  3. Oh, this is beautiful! I love the petals floating in the breeze like that! Wonderful take on the sketch!

  4. I absolutely love the look of this card! It's so pretty!
