Super Sketchy Sunday

I said I'd post these cards later... it's just a tad later than I planned! Church took three hours today (yes, a full three! At the end of the service when they give the Altar Call and we pray, the leader decided to push people a bit about making their commitments instead of just thinking about them, and they got five takers - two baptisms and three new memberships. The pastor asked us to wait while they filled the baptistry and he dunked them on the spot. I think too many people have second and third thoughts if he makes them wait a week.) Anyway, I didn't get to the cards till tonight.

Here's last Sunday's sketch (365 Cards Day 63). The swirl said 'stamp' to me, so I made a stamped card. At first I stuck strictly to the design, but it was too plain, so I added the flowers... and a little bling to finish it off.

And here's todays (365 Cards, Day 70). I was stumped by what to use for the triangles... but I saw another card where they'd used leaves very effectively, and I had  pretty sheet of vellum stickers waiting to be used. I didn't have a ribbon that went with them, so I made one from scraps of cardstock.
