March Madness!

Wowzers! I've got a lot of cards to make! I have 4 birthdays in March plus the anniversary of when my husband and I started dating 8 years ago is next week. Luckily there is tons of inspiration out in the blogosphere:) I used a couple of sketch challengs to make a few cards today. The first one is from clean and simple stamps:

When I first saw the medallion stamp in the IB&C I thought, "who would buy that stamp? It's all by itself!" But as I was designing sketches it kept coming up. I started to understand its appeal:) Now I LOVE it! Here's my first card using it. I loved the grid technique the last time so I decided to use it again for this card.

-very vanilla, always artichoke cs
-Sweet Pea DSP
-Medallion and Vintage Vogue stamp sets from SU!
-very vanilla satin ribbon
-copper brad

The next one I used is Sweet Sunday Sketch #58. Isn't it fantastic? You can do so much with it!

My husband's birthday is next week and I always struggle with masculine cards. I'm not sure I hit the head on the nail with this one, the ribbon kind of fems it up a bit:) Ah well, he'll love it:)
-whisper white, autumn vine dsp, not quite navy cs
-basic gray satin ribbon
-clear button
-white embossing powder
-Happy Moments stamp set

This one is for my niece who loves pink! I hope she'll like it:)
-whisper white and rose red cs
-Sweet Pea DSP
-pretty in pink satin ribbon
-white button
-scalloped square punch
-the cupcake is from The More the Merrier stamp set

Thanks for stopping by!
