Thoughtful cards...

Hi friends!! I am back with two cards. As the title says... a lot of thought went into making these and when I have my ideas in place, I finish the card very quickly and usually the way I had imagined :) Yesterday at the grocery store I came across these herb bags and at that very moment an idea clicked.... 
To make this card, I created a paper bag by cutting n scoring a kraft card stock, made some stripes by masking n inking. Adhered the label n did some stamping. The herbs are the tree dies from CAS-ual Friday's. Finally, attached all the elements on the card base as per the sketch 

I am entering this to the following challenges -

1. CASology Week 92 - GARDEN ( herbs are used in the kitchen garden)
4. Wanna Sketch #15 by Dalhouse Designs (this is probably my first entry at her challenge, I love the sketches Lisa shares and I had to use it )
 Catered Crop Recipe Swap Button
  DDWS15
Supplies used : Stamps - Studio G mini alphabet stamp set, Recollections - preserve memories stamp set; Die - CAS-ual Friday's Tree Frie dies; Pattern paper - Sn@p color vibes from simple stories, DCWV Basics stack, Recollections Jute twine, Inks - Memento - Bamboo, Memories - white dye ink, Memento - Grape jelly n Tuxedo black


My second card was inspired by the theme at The Card Concept #8 - Use an umbrella and since umbrella is a symbol of comfort n care, I will enter this at the Paper Crafts April Gallery Challenge. 
To make this card, I simply hand drew the umbrella on a card stock with the size same as the width of the card base, colored n fuzzy cut it. Adhered it with some foam dots to add dimension. Embossed the sentiment. Also, entering this to Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Keep it clean n simple

Supplies used : Markers - Spectrum Noir, Stamps - Sentiment from CAS-ual Friday's Stamp Comfort, Heart from American krafts - Blue skies; Versa Mark Ink, Whisper Opaque embossing powder and some foam adhesives

Thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment :)
