There is a sketch challenge for us over at JAI this week and this is what I came up with. I haven't used this set for quite a while but thought it would work for this birthday card today. It is the Every Moment set and I have made the card in Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie to match the bag I made last week that you can see here.
I have even used the daisy on the inside of the card too.
Hello Again. Today is my friend Vicki's birthday " HAPPY BIRTHDAY VICKI" and this is what we gave her.
It is a combination of my last two posts and in some of her favourite colors. So I decided I would get her a scarf for her present as it would fit into the lovely bag.
I gave it to her last night when we went to her house for a very enjoyable meal and she loved it (as I knew she would). She was actually at my house crafting with me when I made the card but I didn't tell her what I intended to use it for.
Just a quick post to show you all what I have been doing this week. Bags, bags and more bags. Actually there are only two but it sounded so much better this way. The pattern for these lovely bags I found at the Paper Crafters Library a site set up by Andrea Walford which I have joined.
The first one I made was the Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie for which I made a faux suede flower using the fancy flower punch the leaves from the two step bird and a little old olive button.
The other one is Real Red and Black with a square red fire brad and some silver smooch spritz.
Have to dash now as I have a class to go to so will be back later as I haven't finished here yet.
This week over at Just Add Ink we have been challenged to Just Add Amanda or Danielle. These 2 amazing ladies are the co-founders of Just Add Ink and have decided to step down from the Design Team. So this weeks challenge is a tribute to them.
I have CASEd a card of Amanda's which you can see Here and I also decided that as it is wear Red and Black day here in New Zealand in support of Christchurch I would use those colours for my card.
So I used Basic Black and Real Red card stock, Real Red satin ribbon, Newsprint and Real Red DSPs, Silver Smooch Spritz, a Rhinestone Brad and some Dazzling Diamonds to finish it off. As you can see I haven't used any stamps but ink has been used is some subtle sponging and the flower was made using the Fancy Flower punch.
Thanks Amanda and Danielle for you great inspiration.
