Lily Pad Cards/ Hero Arts sketch challenge

Hi everyone,

I'm here today with another Lily Pad Cards blog challenge. This week's challenge is a sketch challenge and is sponsored by the one and only Hero Arts! Yay! :) Hero Arts was so generous with the design team. They sent not one, not two, but THREE sets for each designer to work with! Because of that I couldn't help but make two cards for this week's challenge. ;)

Here's the sketch:

Here's my first card:

Hero Arts: Greatest Gift, Artistic Circles, Joyful Christmas Season

 ...and my second, in which I flipped the sketch on it's side and didn't include the sentiment:

Hero Arts: Greatest Gift, Artistic Circles

I LOVE the Greatest Gift set SO much! I've been wanting a faith-based set for a long time and Hero Arts has totally delivered with this one. :)

I can't wait to see what the other designers have come up with! Head over to the Lily Pad Cards blog to see what they've created and to get all the contest details.

Sara, the Greatest Gift card is absolutely stunning. Love the distress inks against the black! Wow!

Sara, great cards! I agree, I'm so happy that Hero Arts has a faith-based Christmas stamp...can't wait to get it and I LOVE what you've done with it! I also love those snowflakes...great shades of blue!

I love your cards, especially the one with the manger scene. How did you do the reverse white and black? How about a tutorial on that one?

So, so pretty, beautiful cards, Sarah, love the gradient colors from dark to light on your first card!

Nancy said...

Loving your beautiful cards, Sarah. I'm so happy that HA has a lovely new {Christ}mas set, you've featured it wonderfully.

Sarah said...

These are so pretty! Love the gradients in both.

I love your Christmas Blessings card and I must confess I have made six very similar cards to add to my Christmas card pile...thanks for your inspiration.
