Botanical scraplings

Firstly I'd like to thank so much all of you ladies, who chose my cards to be featured on their challenge blogs in the last two weeks! I'm so happy, and I still cannot believe in all the goodness that happened to me - you girls make me fly!

Now onto the new cards! I finally used some of my leftover cardstock, thanks to the current challenge over at Daring Cardmakers, which is to make scraplings :) I love this format - in fact the narrower and taller the card, the more fun! This time though I have them a tad wider, for they're what I had left from an A4 size.
Here's my bunch (excuse the pun):

I used only a small part of a leafy DP, some cardstock for matting and stamping, and less than a metre of ribbon. A few embellies and some mounting foam added a nice finish. What a nice effect still, innit?
Each card features a different sketch. For the first one it's Friday Sketchers #78.
Different format of the card forced some changes in the design though:

Next one uses this week's sketch from 2 Red Bananas:

I decided to use some eyelets and thread the ribbon through the holes.
Finally, the third card was made to suit CPS 142:

All images were stamped in grey ink, watercoloured and blended. I didn't go for my usual style and let the colours stay soft and pastel. It gives the card a nice summer look (hey, summer is about to come here in Oz!)

Hope you like them, see you again later today!
