Allsorts Challenge - old or new plus a sketch

Here is my entry for this weeks Allsorts challenge. I was very good and used old stash and a stamp I haven't used in ages. the stamp is Non Sequitur and the papers are some Dovecraft Laura Ashley ones. I bought both the traditional pack and the contemporary pack when they came out, but they weren't what I expected and I've not used them at all until today. The leaf punch was a Christmas present and the roses are made as Brenda showed me.

Now when I saw the freebie papers that were on offer from the Funky Hand I had to download them and use them too, so I did another one just for fun! The Stamp is from the Graphicus plate Big Flowers. Thanks for looking!

These are gorgeous Sally. The first one is definitely my favourite, it's stunning. The navy and cream is such a lovely combination and your stamp is well worth digging out!
I really must get into all these challenges again.

I love the colour combinations - really nice.

It's funny that when we buy things (I include myself) they are sometimes a disappointment at the time, but later we find just the right way to use them. And they look wonderful

You have hit the perfect combination of papers and image with your first card Sally. It's gorgeous and the colours are just lovely.

You've switched styles so well and come up with another lovely card using the Funky Hand papers too.

Clever girl!

Hello Sally

Two cards, I'm impressed.

They are both gorgeous, if I have to choose a favourite then I think the first as the image is lovely and love the colour combo.

Funny you felt that way about the Laura Ashely DP's as I was exactle the same and basically disapointed with them.

And your roses loog great, you obviously mastered them very quickly.

Thank you for joining us at Allsorts this week.
