Just Add Ink #24

I am really enjoying doing the Just Add Ink Challenges. 3 weeks in a row, I must be!!

This week's challenge is a sketch challenge (see below). It's a very simple sketch and up to you how you interpret it. I made one card and didn't like it, so made another and ended up going back to the first one again!! The first one just seemed to grow on me :)

So for both of the cards I did, I decided to use the Masking Technique.

So this is the card I am submitting to the challenge. I really wasn't sure about it at first, but now I quite like it. It's simple but effective I think.

Stamp Sets: A Happy Heart
Cardstock & Inks: Ridinghood Red cardstock, Pretty in Pink Cardstock, Whisper White Cardstock, Ridinghood Red Ink, Pretty in Pink Ink (and markers)
Accessories: Ridnghood Red taffeta ribbon, stapler

This is the second one I made. I had a lot of trouble with it as I think it looks 'messy' but thought I would post it anyway :)
Stamp Sets: Party Hearty, Teeny Tiny Sentiments, A Happy Heart, Scribble This
Cardstock & Ink: Rich Razzleberry Cardstock, Melon Mambo Cardstock, Whisper White Cardstock, Rich Razzleberry Ink, Melon Mambo Ink, Pretty in Pink Ink
Accessories: Melon Mambo Ribbon, Build a Brad

I hope you like my cards. I will be back tomorrow with the invites I made for a friend's baby shower.

Have a great weekeknd :)

They are gorgeous, Lisa! Love the masking; such a simple technique, but it really adds dimension.

Love them both, but the first is my favourite. I love that ribbon effect!
