My Sketch Challenge Card
Good Morning Ladies,
Its that time of the week again, these Mondays roll round so fast!
I did think that this was a really easy Sketch until it came to making my card!
Not really, haha, it took a bit of thinking but that's why its called a 'challenge',
Some of the sketch look like our everyday cards, others are a little more involved. Today's sketch is 'middle of the road' as far as difficulty goes.
I think it just makes you look differently at the cards you make, for instance I went through a stage of using nothing but 8 x 8 cards, now I try and chose a different base,the only trouble with that is it takes even longer to decide what I am going to do.
I hope that you are all still enjoying the challenges, it looks as though you are if your fabulous challenge entries are anything to go by, I absolutely love getting your Emails with your challenge cards attached, it makes it all so worth while.
This weeks card I made using Anna Marie patterned card, layered with White card to make the base and layers, I used Sue Wilsons Australian Collection Melbourne Die to make the circular focal element, I also used the Scandinavian Collection Border die to add interest to the side panel, both of these dies are made by Creative Expressions. I added complimentary coloured pearls down the border, around the Melbourne die and in the corners of the card to add thee finishing touches. I was going to add a bow and some flowers but time ran out, I think it looks fine without!
I look forward to seeing what designs you all come up with, will any of you beat Hazel to be first past the post with your challenge card?!
What did you all do yesterday?! We had a quiet day I ended up suffering a bit as I had a little stumble at 4 in the morning after I got up to see what was wrong Milo and Bella, so I was a bit stiff and sore, I was moving about well enough by the afternoon, it was lovely to have everyone home for a lovely roast dinner, cooked by Paul, perfect Mother's day treat for me, I love having everyone together.
I am looking for some Doilies, cotton (not paper), so we might go to look at a local Antique centre today to see if they have any a reasonable prices, I looked on line and some people are charging a fortune, I just want some to use with my 'Altering' projects, if any of you know of any please let me know. Xx
I am off now as Paul has bought me a lovely cup of tea.
I will catch up with you all later,
Love and hugs
