This standard size card came from last week's MojoMonday sketch.  I just love the look of the bright popping colors with black background!  First, a small view of the sketch:

Papers: Dotty For You papers; Sweet Leaf and Black Cardstock
Stamps: Cricket Art Philosphy D-size Stamp set (one of 3 that comes with the cartridge) and S1204 You Are (April Stamp of the Month)
Ink: Lagoon and Smoothie Exclusive Inks
Embellishments: Z1683 Mixed Shapes Dimentional Elements; Z1466 Bling Assortment button; Z1702 Paradise Assortment Baker's Twine; Lace from Colonial White Designer Ribbon Collection (Retired); Cricket Art Philosophy cartridge

A second card I did, also standard size just went together in about 30 minutes (usually it takes me days staring at a blank canvas to create a card and even longer for scrapbook pages); however with the beautiful colors of spring and something I did a long time ago this came together so easily!

I like both of these pictures and couldn't decide from which angle I liked it better.  Tee hee....

Papers: Dotty For You papers; Colonial White and Black Cardstock
Stamps: D1475 Card Chatter - Birthday
Ink: VersaMark and White embossing powder
Embellishments: Z1702 Paradise Assortment Baker's Twine; Z1694 Bouquet Assortment
Other:  Z578 Corner Rounder

Hope you enjoyed my slant on these gorgeous papers!  Now it's off to Dawn Ross' Blog to see her lovely creations!
