World Card Making Day

I was out of pocket most of the day Saturday, the real World Card Making Day, but was able to come up with a few. I may still do a couple more of them just not submit as an official WCMD entry. Thank you for your comments!

My first card is for WCMD09A by Unity Stamps to use a quote as your main image. When I decided on this challenge distressing came to my mind. With the use of panels and square Nestabilities and neutral colors everything fell in place. This picture was taken outside and the wind was blowing. Between the card falling consistently and trying to keep it in place, it appears as though the ribbon is "off" but it's not. The ivory panel next to the Kraft card base was distressed and edged with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

Paper: Kraft, Ivory, Black, Patterned Paper
Ink: Walnut Stain Distress Ink
Accessories: Square Nestabilities, River Rock (ret.) ribbon

The second card met a couple of challenges. One for Crafty Secret's challenge to use dimension and the second for SCS's challenge to use chocolate, thanks sentiment and a sketch.

Stamps: Verve's Beauty in Nature, Beautiful You
Ink: Baja Breeze, Blue Bajou
Paper: SU DSP (ret.), Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Ivory, misc. patterned paper
Accessories: Rectangle Nestabilities, Small hole punch for corner circles, light blue Dew Drops, foam tape

The last card is for WCMD09J which is to use Pumpkin, Chocolate and Vanilla. I love my Nestabilities, any of them, and try to use them as much as possible. I stamped PTI Damask Designs in Pumpkin Pie on Pumpkin Pie, topped it with ret. satin Chocolate Chip ribbon. Ornamental image was raised on foam dots.

Stamps: PTI Damask Deisgns
Ink: Pumpkin Pie
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, Ivory
Accessories: Different Spellbinder shapes, Chocolate Chip ribbon, foam dots

I appreciate your comments and thank you for them.
