Above is my December Sketch and the card I made from it. All of my sketches are done in MDS, and I really enjoy designing them! I create them as a monthly challenge for a Yahoo Group I play and swap with. The card I made turned out very masculine, and had I not had to send it to my partner, my hubby would have gotten it for his birthday a couple days ago;) I will be blogging his really cool card tomorrow. I am not listing supplies for this post. Most are SU, but the pattern paper and texture green in this one is not, it's American Crafts and DCWV.
And here is my January Sketch and the card I created using it as my guide. Bella Rose remaines my favorite DSP, and as much as I want to hoard it and never let it go, I LOVE using it on cards. The coral/green textured CS is DCWV, everything else is SU. I have resolved this year to use up or give away the stuff I don't use, so I am trying to at least use up some of the papers.
I hope you like these cards! I will be back tomorrow with my hubbys birthday card with a cool technique I stumbled upon on my own, though it's really to simple to call it a technique;) Till next time...Happy Stampin'!
