Trendsetter with 2 different looks

I haven't had a lot of crafty time lately.  Just finished up report cards and now am getting ready for Europe.  My daughter and I leave on Friday and will be back on the 25th - lots to do before then!

I decided to play along with a couple of sketches and use some of my Trendsetter collection by Fancy Pants.  So little of this collection left in my stash, one of my all time favorite collections ever! I have also used some chipboard from Creative Embellishments and Studio Calico (stars) along with some MFT dies.


As I was making this card I thought it would make a good baby boy card, which is not what it started out to be!

I was inspired by this sketch from Unscripted Sketches. 

And a totally different look, a card that can be used for a number of occasions. The chipboard is from Creative Embellishments.

I was inspired by this weeks sketch from Retro Sketches

What great cards!! I love that baby card. The stitched pp square kind of reminds me of a baby quilt. I also love how you used the slide frame on the second card. The little elements tucked into it look fabulous.

I almost missed this card because it didn't look like much as a thumbnail. But I'm so glad I did check it out because it's amazing ! I do try to comment on a few more cards than my basic comment rotation and I'm glad I picked this one. I like the anchor and the stars and the tone on tone die cut lettering. Stitching them all on was brilliant! Your other card is amazing too. I do hope you will play with us again because it can't wait to see more of your cards! Thank You for playing with us at Unscripted Sketches this week! Please come again.
