Clean and Simple

Over on Clearly Simple blog
this week their challenge is to
follow a sketch.....hope I've followed
it ok....
just love sketches this always gets
my mojo working lol!!!anyway

I love the clean lines on these cards so simple
to make but I think less is definitely the way
to the colours aswell think
they go really good together....
the base card is from bazzil...the white top piece of card
was run thought my sizzix express in a cuttle bug
folder....the butterfly's where punched from bazzil
card with a Martha Steward punch....the
bottom of the card is also punched out
with a Martha Steward punch....thanks for looking
and feel free to leave

Boy bear

this design is also from little claire's...getting quite
a few now bought this the same time as
the girl bear....
I started with a square card and placed a piece of
bazzil card over the top...I then cut out the front of
the card using my nesties...the image was stamped onto
white card using memento ink....and was coloured in with
my trusty promarkers...the image
was cut out using the same nestie as
I used on the front of the card...
the flowers are stuck on with silicon and
are from a company called orchard crafts...

name for it lol!!!....the card front is covered with
some bazzil and a bow tied around...the paper on
the back of the card is from my stash...
