Butterflies and Reindeer

First up, I wanted to use the retro sketch for this week.
 I printed out some elements from the Be You  mini digital kit from Design House Digital.  Everything on my card is from that kit except the black rhinestones.
 I just printed out several parts of the kit and put them together on my card. 
 Here is the retro sketch.
 Next up is my Kreaxions punch card for my post over at Just Imagine Crafts.  I used the sketch from Clean and Simple for the layout of the card. 
 The black strip is punched with the #922 Kreaxions punch.  I used the punched edge and the piece that would have been discarded.  I also used some Tim Holtz paper tape and added color to it with Distress Stain.  The other elements are stamps from Hero Arts.
 Here is the Clean & Simple sketch.
 This card was created to go along with a challenge at Hero Arts.  The challenge is to use a stamp for a different theme then what would be expected for it.  I just picked up this cute little reindeer and thought it would be adorable on a baby card.  I just stamped it on striped paper and then cut that out. 
The papers are from a set of papers by My Mind's Eye and the label pieces are cut out with the Cricut.  The nice thing about the Cricut for cutting labels like this is that is was so easy to cut it out in three different sizes that mat together perfectly.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
