Unscripted sketches

I want to share two Unscripted sketch projects with you.  Last weeks and this weeks. 
Last weeks sketch #105
The background paper for this card is a digital patterned paper that was printed on textured cardstock. 

 The border was created with a 4-in-1 punch from Kreaxions.  I punched two borders with it and layered them across the card.  What I love about these punches is that there are several different looks you can get from one punch. 
 These little penguins are 3-D stickers by Recollections and I placed them on little white, scallop circles that were cut with a Spellbinders Nestabilities. 
This weeks sketch #106
 For this weeks sketch, I wanted to create a layout.  I took three photos of my granddaughter and created a collage in Picasa so all three are really one photo.  The background paper is by BoBunny.  It had just the right amount of accents on it to fit the sketch perfectly. 
 The butterfly is from a die by Kreaxions. I LOVE this butterfly because of the size, it is bigger then most punches.  I cut it from a piece of patterned paper by BoBunny.  I wrinkled the paper and rubbed it with a stamp pad. 
I added the journaling to my layout by printing the words on paper and then cutting it in strips. I love that look.

Those little flower circles were created with a 4-in-1 punch by Kreaxions.  These punches create different looks depending on how you use them.  I cut the little circles with the circle cutter by Kreaxions, literally the best circle cutter EVER!!!
