OWH Sketch Challenge #157

This week's Operation Write Home's Sketch Challenge #157 had several layers.  I went back to using the cricut for these cards.  I'm sure I'll try coloring again soon.
I couldn't decide to go cute or not, so I have two very different cards.

This first card was inspired by K & Company's Designer Papers - Ancestry.  I just love the paper.  I used it to make a Scrapbook for my Grandmother's 95th Birthday last fall and have been using the paper ever since.  (Had to buy another stack since I liked it so much!)

I tried antiquing the cross with ink on a kleenex, but it's kinda uneven.  I need to watch a tutorial on that.. Maybe inking the edges of the pink solid paper in the middle would look better as well...

Then I was in the mood for something cute...

These cuts were FREE on Cricut Craftroom this week!! Nothing like getting something free to make me happy!  The tag is from Stretch Your Imagination.  The patterned paper is Recollections. I thought about dry embossing the white or scalloped oval, but liked the simplicity of the bold colors the way they were.  Maybe I'll make some that way this week.

Thanks for looking!
