Arful Delight Friday - Journaling Card Cards


Hey everyone!  I've got two Artful Delight cards to share with you this week.  I have to say I am LOVING this month's kit.  Last month's kit was so pretty and delicate and lovely, this month is bold, and colorful, and trendy.

Both of my cards today use journaling cards from Simple Stories 24/7 collection. 

The first card is a very CAS interpretation of this month's card sketch:


The photo fit the speech bubble perfectly - it's from a couple years ago when Andrew and I took Ellie to the beach near my hometown.

I added one of the little 24/7 stickers as well as some of the Canvas Corp hemp cording.  The cording is actually quite thick, so I separated the strands to get the skinny pieces.  I'm going to link this one up over at Simon Says Stamp as it's Masculine/Father's Day week as well as A Blog Named Hero - It's a Man's World.

My second card uses some of the My Mind's Eye papers from the kit as well as some more of the 24/7 stickers, and some fun embellishments:  camera and striped paper clip.  I left the journaling card blank because I figure I will fill in the date and the notable/congratulatory event when the occasion to use it arises.  I added a little doodling around the edges of the papers to give it a little more definition.



I really had a great time creating these.  You guys definitely want to play along with our sketch challenges this month....a random winner gets their pick of the scrapbooking or card kit and they are really so fun this month!
