8 Cards from my July Counterfeit Card Kit!

My month of Guest Designing for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge will soon come to an end, but that doesn't mean that I don't have a ton of projects to share with you!  First let me share that today's projects were not made with my July main kit-instead, I created a smaller Counterfeit Card Kit.  You can absolutely do this every month, too, if you are a cardmaker!
This month, our inspiration kit was the Summer Boardwalk Kit from Citrus Twist.  Instead of copying the kit exactly, as I did with my main kit, I made a very generic list of kit contents.  My list included things like: "chevron patterned paper", "masculine print paper", and "textured embellies."  Definitely generic, but with plenty of room for interpretation!  This is a totally legit way to play along when your stash doesn't seem to work with the inspiration kit, or when the inspiration kit just isn't your style.  I also wanted to include some sketches, so I printed some that I had already pinned on Pinterest.  Here are pics of my kit contents:

Patterned papers from Cosmo Cricket, Pebbles, Colorbok, Echo Park, Imaginisce, and TPC (a 6x6 piece of each to make me feel like I had a new 6x6 bundle to work with!)...

tiny alpha stickers, chipboard letters, felt embellies, paper flower, ribbon, buttons, twine, and a vintage pattern print in place of the vintage book page...

and uber-cute Lawn Fawn.  :)  I substituted the border stamps for the washi tape in the inspiration kit.

Now for my my sketches and cards.  I made 2 cards from each sketch, for a total of 8 cards from my little kit!  Click on the sketches to be taken right to their websites.
