Sugar Bowl Challenge # 8

I hope you all had a fabulous Easter. Mine rushed by in a blur of trying to catch up with my life after being sick for two weeks, but I did carve out some time to do a little stamping...
Here are my cards for the latest challenge over on the Sugar Bowl.
For some weird reason, I can't get Blogger to load these in the order I want... this top card was actually made last, and takes a few more liberties with the actual sketch provided than the bottom card, but I had such a good time creating my first card that I went ahead and did another.
I have already confessed my love for Basic Grey paper and the "Sultry" collection, but Scarlet's Letter was where it all really began for me. I love those papers so much that I have framed a couple of them (really, honestly) I like the grungy gorjussness of it and feel it goes perfectly with my Gorjuss Girl.

"Wish" uses paper from my all time favorite Angel Company collection (sadly discontinued) called Khamalat, as well as some from the DCWV Once Upon A Time stack, which I bought sight unseen because I was sure I would love it. Not so much, actually......b ut I like it in this card - and it inspired another which I will post later this week.
(I know, I can feel your excitement from here - hard to contain yourselves, eh?)
Both cards feature stamps from Sugar Nellie , a company dear to my heart, both because they are Scottish and because they have some of the coolest rubber images around (IMHO)

These are amazing works of art! They are so detailed and intricate, I can't even imagine how long they must take - but the end result is so worth it!

Oh wow, these are great. All the colors look great together and the images are perfect!

On blogger, I always load my pictures in reverse order to get them they way I want them.
