CAS(E) This Sketch #162, Inspired by All the Little Things #5, and NBUS #6

Here are a couple more of the cards I mentioned yesterday.  This first one is for CAS(E) This Sketch.
Stamp of Approval box to the rescue.  The Casual Fridays sentiment was the starting point for my card and a set from Sugar Pea Designs provides the images.  
My next card is for a new-ish challenge: "Inspired by All the Little Things", another Lesley Croghan creation.  The photo inspiration is gorgeous.
I just got a new stamp set from Uniko and it was perfect for the challenge.
I had the darnedest time trying to photograph the gold embossing.  Even with a light tent it wanted to look black.  I finally laid it down in front of a window and it still doesn't look as gorgeous as it does IRL.  I had intended to put that Altenew butterfly on the rim of the cup but guess what?  Yup, another smudge.  I think it was from the pink I used to color the images. Fortunately the butterfly fit over it and it looks like she's coming in for a landing.  

I'm also using this for my second entry into Darnell's NBUS challenge.
I'd better get back to work on a couple of cards that are eating at my brain. I have practice tonight for a play we're doing for Maundy Thursday so I won't be able to get much done after.

Thanks for dropping by.

  8. Ahhhh, I have many a card with strategically-placed embellishments due to smudging!! I'm also ahhhhing over your teacup card as I have a tea fanatic friend who is having surgery and need to make her a card. She would LOVE yours. It's gorgeous!

  11. Love your angled cake and the candles, those in colour and on your background. Need to go for a window-shopping stroll over to SugarPea. The gold/pink of your second...wonderfully elegant. Of course, you know I adore the butterfly...
