Playing with a sketch :)

Alma from The Cat's Pajamas gave us DT members a sketch to play with a couple of weeks ago. Usually I just do my own thing, so it was fun to challenge myself to work with the design provided. Here are the 2 cards I came up with. The patterned paper on the first card is the "Fruitcake" collection from Basic Grey; on the second card the paper is from Arctic Frog. The ribbon on the first card and the poinsettia on the second card are both by Making Memories.
Have a great evening! We have one of Iain's colleagues coming over for dinner so I'm running out the door now to pick up dessert (nope, I'm not cooking!).

Gorgeous cards!

If I make Christmas cards this year I'm going to use the Basic Grey Fruitcake it!

I just used that same paper (Joy card) on a recipe card I did for a swap! I love that paper.

I love both of your cards shown - I didn't think I needed or wanted the BasicGrey or the cat see what you've done?? LOL Very cute stuff!!
