Sketch Saturday #326

It's Saturday and time for another great sketch at
and we are delighted to be sponsored by
 our very own 
a Stampin Up demonstrator
who has designed this week's fabulous sketch and is giving away a wonderful Stampin Up prize!

I'm just getting back into the swing of things after lots of trips and I played fast and loose with our sketch this week and made two wedding cards.  I was inspired by the stitching to make clothes... in heart shapes as I have seen other bloggers do from time to time.  And this is my version...

In the card above I used a Stampin Up embossing folder for my background and a Tim Holtz embossing folder for the man's shirt. The bow tie is by Die-namics and the hearts are cut with two different Memory Box dies.  My sentiment is by PTI and is mounted on a Sizzix banner.  This card is for my nephew whose bride has chosen silver, white and purple for her wedding colours.

My second card is for a very dear friend who is marrying his partner today.  I was invited to the wedding which is in Amsterdam and I'm sure it is going to be a magnificent day but sadly I am unable to attend.  I have no idea what colours the guys have chosen for their special day but their invitation was red and black and white so I opted for the same colours.  This time I heat embossed the lapels of the jackets.  I used Couture Creations Tied Together embossing folder for the background and a houndstooth folder for the shirts.  My sentiment is LOTV and I have used another Sizzix banner.  I hope Lizy doesn't mind me being so loose with her sketch but it really did inspire me!

I am entering my cards into the challenge for "Embossing" at Sweet Stampin.  I think I'm just in time;
 "Anything Goes" at Papertake Weekly
"Any Sentiment Except Birthday" at Aud Sentiments; and
"Dies or Punches" at My Mum's Craft Shop

Now do scooch some space on your craft table and come and play along with us!
