Mojo Monday 211 Sketch

This is the first time I have tried this challenge blog but as I was completely lacking in inspiration, I wanted to follow a sketch:

The colour combination I chose was due to an element that I didn't end up using but I really like what evolved and will use the colours again. Here's the card:

  • A5 card (fold at the top) in pale cream

  • Papers from Basic Grey and HOTP - from scraps box

  • Ribbon from stash - wide brown ribbed

  • Chipboard from Sassafras

  • Brads and Blooms from stash

  • Greeting stamp from Studio G

I really enjoyed making this card, which had the theme of "pastels and lace". I had some vintage lace from a pile of ribbon my mum gave me and layered it up with Basic Grey papers and some glitter stickers.

  • Bazzil Cream card blank, 6 x 6"

  • Basic Grey papers

  • Vintage lace

  • Papermania stamp

  • Dewdrop ink

  • Pack of glittery flower stickers from Back in Time

Winter Wonderland Robin Challenge

This week's challenge is to use a robin redbreast somewhere on the card so I dug out the papers I used earlier in the week:

  • Kraft 6 x 6" blank

  • Papers and Chipboard from My Mind's Eye

  • Ribbon and blooms from stash
