2 cards using same DP - totally different looks!

Hello fellow Bloggers!  I have to apologise for my absence over the last few days - going in to have my colonoscopy done tomorrow and a bit uptight about it - heard so many gruesome stories - thankfully I am getting it done thru BUPA (TY Graham's work!) so will have the luxury of my own room, fluffy dressing gown etc but to cap it all Graham is away til tomorrow so Lynne will be taking me up for the procedure.  I have to be there for 7am so early night tho I won't sleep a wink as I have been taking strong laxatives all day - Vicky you will understand I am sure!!

Anyway, onto my two cards for today both using  a fab DP from Funky Hand CD called V Funky - I just adore Anice's DPs.

The first card is for the Cupcake Patchwork Challenge :~
 All I did for this was cut 9 squares of paper slightly smaller than my card and added stamped stitches to make it look like patchwork.
 I love this Sugar Nellie Raven stamp - a recent purchase for me - which reminds me I must take some pics of the goodies I bought at Emerald Crafts in Brecon (TY to those of you who pointed me in the right direction - fab fab fab shop and girls are so helpful - kept Graham amused while I spent a small fortune!).  Coloured her with my PMs as usual.
This sentiment is a gorgeous freebie from Rainbow Echo Designs.


My second card is for the following challenges:~

Sketchy Colours Beige, Brown and Purple;
One Stitch at a Time Use a Digi and
Sketch Saturday.
 Same DP but distressed ink used on edges.  The fab image is one of Jenni's new Imogen digis - aint she gorgeous?  The bunting is from a free Molly Bloom stamp.

Amazing how one DP can make two totally different looking cards but then I suppose its endless isn't it?  Maybe one day I will try to make as many as I can that look completely different.

Thanks for looking guys and happy crafting - will be absent tomorrow.
