Kazan's Sketch 62

Kazan used the sweet little water can & sentiment from Flowers A bunch Stickerz set

This week I challenged the 2S4Y Design Team to get a little creative with their cardmaking skills and work in some sort of decorative edge on their sample card.  The tools we have available to us to jazz up our cards are so varied and I bet many of you have a variety within arms reach on your craft table.  Idea's that come to mind to create a schmancy edge are decorative scissors, border punches, die templates, pre-cut templates etc and if all else fails - trace your own design and trim by hand.  I think the team did an outstanding job using the most adorable images from this week's sponsor: E.A.D. Designs

Angie Tieman

Angie used the adorable Asian Flair Stickerz on her card

Courtney Baker

Courtney's card has the darling little Wolf & sentiment from the Little Red Stickerz set

Kelly Marie Alvarez

Whoot whoot!  Kelly used the cute owl from the Out on a Limb Stickerz set

Regina Mangum

Regina created this mini work of art using the Wizard of Oz Stickerz set

Rosemarie Diehl

Rosemarie makes these adorable robots, from Robot Buddies Stickerz, even cuter on her card
Stacey Schafer

Stacey created pure elegance with the Wedding Bliss Stickerz on her card
