Sycamore Street and Vintage Verses

Two card for two challenges.  (You can see the challenges below)

This is actually my second card.  I used the Top Note die cut from first (see below) as the main focal point.  Isn't this paper beautiful?  It's from the fabby Sale-A-Bration set of papers called Sycamore Street.  You can earn this set free when you spend £45 during Sale-A-Bration.  Drop me an email on to place your order.

I mounted it onto Sahara Sand and used my Paper Snips to trim to shape.  I then attached it to a panel of Summer Starfruit.  The sentiment panel is from Vintage Verses and stamped in Tangerine Tango.  I snipped a banner and then roughed up the edges with my Paper Snips.  I also roughed the edge of my card base.  I added 3 medium Basic Pearls along the bottom.

My second card (actually the first I made!) has a mat of Summer Starfruit then I used the Bigz Top Note to die cut a panel of Sycamore Street.  A second die cut of Whisper White was inserted back into the space.  My far side was a little uneven so I added a strip of patterned paper to cover it up.  I stamped the whisper white panel with the Bloomin' Marvelous stamps.  Clear embossing some of the leaves.  I added the largest of the Basic Pearls along the bottom so they stood out.  I wasn't sure if this was CAS enough for either of the challenges and so created the top card.

Both very different yet following the same two challenges. 

I was at my Jazzercise class this morning.  My neighbour runs a brilliant class in the local Village hall.  Today to my surprise one of the songs featured Pachelbel's Canon.  A beautiful piece of music which I had as my Bridal March.  How weird to be doing a Jazzercise routine to it! 

Take care, keep cosy.  xx
