Mark's Finest Papers Blog Hop Day 3

Today's featured set is called Stinky Situation. Too cute!



The first card uses the porcupine, sentiment and lovely birch trees from the set, cardstock and ribbon are Mark's Finest Papers also. The background on the card base was embossed using a Sizzix texture plate that was inked first with a pale gray ink.

The second card uses two of the skunks and the sentiment. I thought this would be great to use for love, anniversary, friendship, or a Valentine with that sentiment. The layout is from Paper Crafts Go To Sketches. Martha Stewart border punch and red satin ribbon from MFP.
