April Card sketch and a cute photo;-)

Before I share the April Sketch Support card sketch and my two cards based on it, I first want to share this precious photo of my little grand daughter Leane.  She discovered the black sleep mask in their toybox.  Wynand used it when his eyes were so sensitive after his brain bleed.  She then got the pink one with her Barbie dressing table.  When Lache checked on her at bedtime...this is what she found.  Not only was Leane's eyes covered but Ruby her teddy's eyes were covered too.

Card Sketch #18

You can download and print this sketch by clicking on the card sketches link found under the "printable sketches" tab on the right sidebar of the Sketch Support blog.

Here is my two cards:

Supplies used - Cardstock: Bazzill; Printed paper: Melissa Francis; Ribbons: Making Memories(Fresh Anthology); Pearl swirls: Basic Grey; Chipboard frame: Tattered Angel; Flower: Prima: Sentiment: Kaisercraft; Punch: Martha Stewart: Other: pins

Variation #1: My card and background square is slightly larger than the sketch.

Variation #2: I used ribbons instead of paper strips.

Variation #3: I applied my sentiment over the ribbon.

Supply list - Cardstock: Bazzill; Printed papers: Bo Bunny (square), My Minds Eye (Hip Hooray Boy); Gift diecut and tag: (My Minds Eye, Hip Hooray Boy); Brads: Upikit.

Variation #1: The card and background square is slightly larger than the sketch.

Variation #2: I zigzagged around my background square

I hope you are having a wonderful Easter weekend.
