Cute card


I had checked out all the challenges I wanted to enter this week and found one other to add to my list which was new to me {http://tickledpinkstampmonthlychallenges.blogspot.com/}.  I found it while blog hopping and  loved the look of their monthly sketch  challenge (above).  I also spotted that   http://tuesdaytaggers.blogspot.com/ are being sponsored by http://www.ribbonoasis.co.uk/ this week and up for grabs are the beautiful ribbons shown above. Without further ado I set about making my card incorporating all the elements needed to qualify for the challenges. I used 2 co-rdinating backing papers and followed the sketch for the background. I water coloured my Miss Anya (greetings farm) stamped image with Pink and Lilac colours. I dug out a gorgeous roll of off cut lace that I found in a habberdashery for about 45p which still had sticky tape round the middle. I used a piece of that lace, some pearl studs, a gorgeous glittered Butterfly with gemstones and a sentiment which all seemed to work well together. It took me much longer to make than I thought as I had to re-cut my background squares twice. They seemed to dominate the card before I cut them down in size. I was really pleased with my finished card .
Below is a list of all the challenges I entered.
