Unscripted and CPS sketches

My post today is about sketches - nothing new for me!!!
This first card is using the Unscripted sketch #63 and the bonus to this sketch is to use the color scheme that is posted on the blog. I thought right away of the photos I took at Christmas time of some poinsettias in our town. The colors were exactly what was needed.
What was even better is that this collection of patterned papers by BoBunny fit the color scheme exactly too, plus my card is in keeping with the other theme of Christmas in July.
My next two cards go with the Card Positioning Systems sketch for this next week and to go along with those cards are Lizzie Anne stamps. They are the sponsors for this week. I picked a set of four fancy sentiments.
Notice the dot, embossed cardstock on the card. That is Core'dinations Core Impressions, it comes with those dots in it already.
I wanted to show off the paper I used for the card base. It is a two sided paper and I loved the way the inside is all decorated.
This one also shows a sentiment stamp from Lizzie Anne.
Notice the card base, it is Core'dinations Core Impressions. It has that flower embossed design in it. All it takes is a little sanding to expose the design.

And, more photos!!!
As we were driving down the coast, we crossed over the Golden Gate bridge. It is just so amazing to see as you are driving up to it. This time we stopped on the one side where there is a lookout, the perfect spot for photo taking. We got there as the sun was just going to set.

From this lookout spot, you can see San Francisco off in the distance.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Pretty cards. Core'dinations paper is so mich fun! But oh boy, do I love those phitiographs of the Golden Gate bridge. It's been too many years since we were there and I truly miss California/

Oh I love the texture of all your cards Linda, the poinsettia photo is just gorgeous! And hopefully one day, I'll be able to actually drive over a suspension bridge, (something, I've never done). Just gorgeous those photos are. :)

Oh my, but these photographs make me homesick. I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. How often I looked at the bridge and took it for granted. Now that I live in the Midwest, I never get tired of seeing that beautiful feat of engineering, and a little piece of me just smiles. Thanks for sharing your creativity!

Beautiful cards, Linda! Love all that Core'dinations embossed cardstock and love the fun stamps, too. And how wonderful to incorporate one of your photos into a card design!
Thanks for sharing those fabulous photos of the Golden Gate. That's my home, and it always pulls on my heart to see that bridge. :)

Making cards is the only thing I've missed since I started digi scrapping and your cards are making me want to dig out my paper supplies! I love them! Especially the brown/orange Growing Up/Old one. Darling.

Glad you got to see the sights in San Francisco!
