World Card Making Day!

I'm hoping to play along with as many World Card Making Day challenges as I can fit in! Here's my first card, for the Unity challenge on Splitcoaststampers. I didn't have an 8.5 inch wide piece of Rose Red to use w/ this Bittersweet designer paper, so I had to make a scallop-edged card with an overhanging image. It came out ok, very Valentine-ish. Most supplies are from i {heart} papers.

Stamps: Unity
Papers: Basic Grey Bittersweet
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Tim Holtz Distress Ink in tea dye
Accessories: Nestabilities squares, Copic markers, Kaiser pearl, primas, rickrack and button from the stash!
Here's a card for Beate, Jenn and Lori's challenge to make a Chocolate Sketch Thank-you card. I used some SEI Chocolat` Mousse and Noisette designer paper that I've been hoarding forever! It is so shimmery and beautiful I just wasn't quite brave enough to cut into it. I am going to *attempt* to show you the way it changes from silver to gold depending on the light.

This paper is so yummy that you just don't want to do anything to cover it up! I stayed very simply to the sketch and let the paper speak for itself. All I added was a Hero Arts sentiment cut and matted with Nesties, a few Basic Grey Opaline pearls and a sheer bow.
