Two Cards from Two Sketches

I have been relying heavily on sketches and challenges to get things done lately. I need to pack all the creativity I can into some very short hours. I made these two cards for a recent buffet using Heather Scott's Card Sketches. I used Card Sketch 49 for this Give Thanks card. I turned the card and left the corners square, but other than that it is pretty right on.

I used TAC's Brown and Ivory Cardstock, Green 2 Cardstock, Give Thanks, Spring Dream, Mega Scallop Circle Punch, Kai 4" Scissors (the BEST, a must have, for paper piecing), and Palette Burnt Umber Ink.

For this card I used Heather Scott's Card Sketch 46. I love the simple layout and need to remember to use it more often. If I would quit recreating the wheel for every card, I might actually get something done!

I used TAC's Kraft and White Cardstock, Tis The Season, Palette Burnt Umber Ink, PrismaColor Pencils, and Paper Piercer.

Thanks for stopping by!
