I love to think of nature
as an unlimited broadcasting station,
through which God speaks to us every hour,
if we will only tune in.

Irish Love

Bonus Sketch

Two Cards for 2S4Y #44.


Well, I think I got in just under the wire.  One of these days I will get things done earlier.  However, I am early for the Color Throwdown challenge.  I'm not completely satisfied with the Irish card.  Now that I look at it I did forget one element for the sketch on the bottom.  I was going for something a little quick and started out by making the colors of the Irish flag. I also wanted to use the shamrock stamp alongside my sentiment, but it was too large and since I was running out of time, I chose shamrock gems instead.  Still, it was a fun card to make. 

Stamps:  Shamrock stamp and sentiment.
Paper:  green, orange and white cardstock.
Ink:  Pine.
Extras:  Nestability die, green brads, shamrock gems, green and orange ribbon.


The Love card I like a litlte better.  It is for the bonus challenge.  Although now you cannot see the image on the patterned paper as well, the heart columns I made with a heart punch and gell pen mirror the image of the pink hearts hanging off of green vines.  The color scheme is from Color Throwdown 76.  Again, I had to improvise a little on the colors and get them as close as I could.

Stamps:  NONE!
Paper:  Patterned paper, olive, pale yellow and raspberry cardstock.
Ink:  NONE!
Extras:  heart punch, olive gel pen; Sizzis skittle dee doo alpha die, rapsberry patterned ribbon.

Well, it's late and I'm up as usual, but not for much longer.

They are both pretty...though I think I prefer the Irish card. Love the use of the Irish flag in the background. The colors on the Love card are pretty, too! Time to think about Valentines!!
