Follow this sketch

Yes you would think I would have no trouble following 
this sketch from 52 CCCT wouldn't you?

So easy but what did I come up with well this.

Not really what was asked for.
By the way that is just crystal glitter on the flower so don't know why it looks blue in places 
So it was back to the drawing board.

At last I got it right.  The white card is embossed with holly and then cut up.
The holly comes from a Lucy stamp Holly square that I cut out after colouring and adding Dimensioal magic
The red card is one that I have had for 10 years or more
hidden at the back of a drawer.
The things we crafters hoard.

Am entering this in:

Thanks for dropping in you are most welcome.

  1. Two lovely cards. I like the flower on the first card. The first card's design has just flipped the sketch. I think it might still fit.

  2. I think they're both fabulous, Margaret! But I have to say I LOVE the CAS holly card--the dry embossing was a fabulous choice! Thanks for joining us at 52CCT! :)

  3. Fabulous card and design Margaret. Visited from MIM..Loz

  4. Nothing wrong with the first one - think it met the sketch just as well as the second - love them both - thanks for sharing for CHNC challenge extra for August - hope to see you again soon, Margaret. x

  5. Hello Margaret. I spotted your beautiful card on MIM. Faye

  6. I like the designer paper you used for the first card, and the second one is very elegant in its simplicity. Nicely done on both accounts! :) Thanks for joining us again this week at 52{C}CT!

    cards. Thanks for sharing on Make it Monday .

  8. Margaret - I love, love the clean, simple lines of your second card with the embossed holly echoed in the stamped image - brilliant. I do like the first one too! Thanks so much for your continued support of 52CCT!

  11. Hi Margaret - I agree with all the others that both of your cards are just wonderful. But, I really love the clean and elegant look of your second cards, and the fabulous holly. Thanks so much for joining us this week at 52CCT!

  12. Hello Margaret - I love BOTH cards! The flourishes and sparkle on the first one are so lovely! The texture from the embossed panels and the Dimensional Magic on the berries on the second card are fab! Well done on using a card base that had been neglected for years, you just knew it would be needed one day! Thanks for always joining us at 52 {C}CT, I look forward to seeing you next week! Ruth x

  13. I like how clean your embossed card looks! Thanks for playing at 52CCT this week (and I love the first card too... your story was hilarious!)


  14. Both cards are fab Margaret, love the red card base and the white embossed panels on the second one. The holly sets it off beautifully. Thanks for joining in with our sketch challenge this week at 52 CCT
