Mojo Monday Sketch #231

This week there are several challenges that have my mind turning... The Mojo Monday Sketch #231 along with the Ribbon Reel Challenge of Newsprint inspired me to create two card.

My first card started from newsprint pattern paper from the Bo Bunny pad of paper:


The newsprint paper led me to create a masculine card with a travel theme.  I used kraft glassine on the bottom half embossed with an embossing folder. I mixed in Artistic Outpost images from Route 66 and Diesel Punk to create my tags and banner.  I turned the layout into a pocket card with two tags.

After that I wanted to create a feminine card using the same idea of tags in a pocket:



I  also played along with the ColourQ #127 challenge this week for my colors. The velvet flower trim is a beautiful coral and came up a little dark in the photo. I used the Memory Box stamps for the background and the die is a Memory Box butterfly.  The verse is from Verses Rubber Stamps.

The sketch & color palette:

Have a wonderful day!

Wow Suzanne, these are both wonderful! I love the vintage masculine card, I didn't know you could get Kraft glassine bags! Great effect there!
And how beautiful is your feminine tag card, not just one, but two tags! Absolutely gorgeous! The layered butterfly is so pretty, along with the pink trim. Great job on the sketch too!
