Simple Cards for s'Sketches Challenge

I've used two beautiful sketches from s'Sketches challenge for this week.
I wish I have more time to play in all their challenges ...really beautiful sketches!
Here is the first sketch...

I've used Pink Paislee papers on this card ... absolutely gorgeous papers!
Stamped some butterflies on acetate, embossed with Distress embossing powder in Vintage Photo then cut and layer them.
The acetate will melt when heated, so please be careful with this method if you plan on trying it.

This next sketch was really fun to play with ...

I know, that lace is just gorgeous right?! I really love it, unfortunately that was my last piece and I don't remember where it came from.
I also love these papers from My Minds eye. The ruffle paper was machine stitched, inked and sanded for the worn shabby look.
To make this card extra girly, I've added feathers and tiny gem spray.

I really enjoyed making these two cards. Thanks so much for stopping by, have a wonderful day.
