Parisian Dreams and Ho Ho Ho!

Yesterday, Mr. Brown brought me some great new SU! DSP including Parisian Summer. This has been one that I have wanted since the catalog came out, but kept putting it off. It is finally here and it is positively scrumptious. I haven't seen much done with it, but who knows, maybe I am just out of it? LOL! Anyway, I thought it would work well with today's sketch challenge over at SCS. I also paired it with "Dreams du Jour" Stamp Set. The flowers in this paper reminded me of the flower from this set. I did minimal sewing because I am lazy today! LOL! Anyway, I thought the sewing that I did worked well with this design to mimic a quilt square. I colored the images with a blender pen and ink refills. I also added some pink taffeta ribbon. Yummy! Of course it couldn't be complete without a little glitter, so I added some diamond stickles.

My second card started out as an attempt at yesterday's color challenge, but I decided I wanted it to not be so bright red; more vintage. So...I pulled out some of the Paper Salon paper I picked up the other day at Hobby Lobby and started creating. I realized after I was done that this card looked familiar. This is almost the exact same layout I already used for this exact santa for my Design Team assignment. I CASED myself! LOL! This santa and sentiment are from The Saltbox Studio which can be found here: Thanks for fluttering by!

I saw your Sketch card on SCS earlier and you know, I don't think I've noticed anyone using it before you ;) It's very pretty!

Love the layout for your Santa's a GREAT layout, I see why you'd use it again!

Gorgeous cards! I LOVE the new paper that you've used here-- I passed over it in the catalog, but it certainly merits a closer look! Beautiful design!!!
