What's black and white and red all over?

365 Cards #27
      Unfortunately, I'm note sure kids these days even know or understand the traditional answer to my title. But today's answer is actually two sketch cards I did.  I used the same image ( a free digi from The Alley Way Stamps website) and the same papers, but they definitely are not the same card.  You'll notice I did a little doodling on the coffee cup image.
Retro Sketch 48
     The first card uses this week's sketch from 365 Cards, challenge #27. This is a vertical card. The white background is embossed in the swiss dot folder, to emphasize all the dots going on. I added dots to the image and used dotted organza ribbon as a little tab.
     The second card, the horizontal one, uses Retro Sketch challenge #48. The doodling on this is a little different -- I was going to doodle squiggles for the three little strips, but this patterned paper really matches the image and worked too perfectly. I used the organza ribbon again, this time tied onto a heart-shaped clip. There is piercing all around the edge of the red panel. The sentiment is straight off the computer printer.
