It’s the final day for the Eid holidays, still a lot of projects to be done but was able to do some holiday cards including this one.
I used stamps from Paper Smooches, stamped them in patterned papers and fuzzy cut the little bird and doggie. It’s my first time using vintage papers, tried to incorporate them in a modern look? The background paper seems to overwhelm my main images so I put vellum to tone them down.
For embellishment I added some mini pompom ribbon, another ribbon and a button.
I’m entering this card to Retrosketches # 85. Love this week’s sketch challenge.
Since I’m using these pretty stamps from Paper Smooches, I’m entering the same to Festive Friday theme challenge, to create a holiday project with whimsical theme.
and also to Simon Says Stamp challenge, Christmas/ Happy Holiday.
Trying out also in Paper Smooches GD search 🙂

Today starts a new card challenge at The Stamping Shack blog. The theme this time is one that’s very dear to everyone’s heart, our Mom. The challenge, ‘A card for Mum’.
I used The Stamping Shack digi image on my main image, colored the little girl and her cart with Promarkers.
For the background, I used stamping on textured background. I first impressed the circle designs using Papertrey Ink Circle Impression plate, then stamped it with Hero Arts wood grain background stamp.
The two type of sentiments come from my stash. Added a diecut buttons, some patterned papers, washi tapes and I’m good to go.
I’m entering this card in Retrosketches challenge # 52 by using sketch Sketch # 43 to create my card.
Also in Simon Says stamp, Anything goes challenge.
And so for my number one fan and wonderful mother, Thanks Mom.
