Spring Birthdays! (Sweet Sketch Wedsnesday Bunny Hop Challenge Card)

Tomorrow is my dear old Nans Birthday. The day after is my Aunties. So many Spring Birthdays, and as usual I have left the cards until the last minute. So today was spent making these two almost identical cards.

I decided to use this lovely 'Coco and roses' digi stamp available here;

I have used the latest sketch from http://sweetsketchwednesday.blogspot.com/ and plan to enter it into the blog hop sketch challenge over there.

I have used an 8x8 card blank from Craftwork Cards. I love this card size, and digis are great as you can resize them to fit! The papers are the new Rose Garden designs from Papermania. I have used Spellbinders scalloped Framabilities die, Cuddly Buddly sentiment stamp, sticky ribbon, & Copics to colour.

For the 'Auntie' sentment, I again used the Cuddly Buddly Grandma stamp (as above) but just inked up the outer bits with a Whispers pen so that it did not stamp the word 'Grandma'. I simply wrote the Auntie bit in afterwards with the Whispers pen. I think Cuddly Buddly do one of these that says 'Aunt' , but I haven't got it.

Thanks for looking x
