Simply Soft Twice

Two cards, one stamp set, one challenge.  

This is another entry for Freshly Made sketches and a reminder of the sketch - 

I actually had the idea to try out this sketch based on the card I'm going to show tomorrow. 

However before I got to there, River Rock textured card was calling to me so I diverted course and went in a completely different direction colour wise.

I stamped the images from Simply Soft in River Rock on Whisper White.  With the middle panel I coloured the flower heads with Cherry Cobbler.  I used my Blender Pen for the colouring.  

The sentiment is from Outlined Occasions and punched out using Word Window Punch and mounted onto Cherry Cobbler Modern Label

Still wanting to try out my original plan here's my other version - 

As it's monochromatic  I've taken out one of the layers and simplified the flower panel in the middle.  This time I lined up the complimenting petal stamp using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.  A little piece of ribbon and the sentiment is the same as above.

Hope you enjoyed looking at my two versions.  We had our first real snowfall today and my daughter gleefully went out sledging.  It was really sunny so wasn't cold at all and I suspect it will all be gone by tomorrow.

Both versions are so pretty Aileen, the flower images are the perfect stamp for the sketch too :0)
Funny that you've had your first snowfall after the rest of us have had ours and now it's all gone! You can keep it though, we don't want it back!
