 I have a few cards to share today that I made over the last week.

The first is a sympathy card.  I used this week's sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch:

I used a set of layered stamps to make the flowers and butterflies. I stamped the sentiment on matching white cardstock and ran a light blue ink pad over the edges to give it a bit of definition.

Next up is a birthday card that was inspired by the card sketch at Stick it Down.

I used leftover banner die cuts from a Fancy Pants Collection kit.  To make the frame stand out from the background, I matted it with black cardstock. A stamped sentiment, some flower stickers and black pearls finished off the card.

My last card was not inspired by a sketch.  It is a First Communion card for my daughter.  I was inspired by the beautiful cross cut from the New Testament Cricut cartridge.  I sprayed the background panel with gold glimmer mist. I spread gold gelato on the cross and metallic icing gelato on the scrolls to add some shimmer.  It is pretty subtle, so you can't see it very well in the photo, unfortunately.
