52CC week 8 - sketch challenge

Week 8 - sketch prompt

The prompt for week 8 was this sketch.  It did fox me a little at first, but then whilst blog hopping I saw a project which gave me an idea, you can see it here on Neet & Crafty.  As you can see, I have 'card-lifted' the design more or less exactly for the birthday card and changed it a little for the Christmas one!

The birthday card is done with some free papers from Simply Homemade magazine, I think they may be Kaisercraft?  The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch, crystal trail is Kaisercraft, sentiment stamp may be Technique Tuesday or Twinchies, not sure which.

The Christmas card also has magazine papers, this time from Making Cards. I found some Bazzill in Cajun and Rusted to match the colours, used them to make the sentiment circle.  The sentiment itself is from Stamping All Day.  The holly leaves and berries are an MS punch and I finished off with some gold ribbon.  I am still hesitating over whether to put some pearls in the bottom right corner, but I think I'll leave it alone for now!
