Two MFT Sketches (Color #48 and Sketch 287)

Hello all,

I realize it's been over three weeks since I've posted anything. Thank you for your patience (for those six or seven people who read my blog! LOL!)  :)

I wanted to participate in two of My Favorite Things (MFT) sketches. You can click on each image to take you there!

However, now that I look closely at both challenge, it seems I took a few too many liberties? :) I seem to have missed one color and the banner should be ON top of the circle, not below it.

Ah well! :)

Here's my interpretation of each sketch:

Okay, at first I wasn't sure about leaving the pig black and white, but I think it works here. :) I think if it had been colored, it may have taken away too much from the rest of the card. Plus, pink was not one of the colors in the color challenge.  ;)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Hog Heaven (MFT)
Dies: Double Banner (PTI); Stitched Mat: Circle (Lil' Inkers Designs); Banners #3 (Sizzix)
Paper: Stamper's Select (PTI); Wild Wisteria, Lush Lagoon, and Gumdrop Green (all MFT)
Ink: Versamark; Wild Wisteria, Lush Lagoon, Gumdrop Green (all MFT)
Other: Black Embossing Powder (Ranger); Scan N Cut (Brother)

Hello all,

I wanted to make a card for a co-worker who is needing some prayers for her little girl. I know she loves flowers, so I wanted to make something cheerful:

Hard to make out in the picture, but the Vintage Cream panel has a "burlap" texture to it, and many of the flowers have a little "Wink of Stella" to add some shine. :)

Dies: Spring Wreath die (MFT)
Paper: Stamper's Select, Vintage Cream (both PTI); Lush Lagoon (MFT)
