Another Challenge Entry!

Blimey! I don't know what's the matter with me this week, here's another card which I have made to enter into some challenges. I have used the sketch from  the Secret Crafter Saturday blog , but have turned the sketch on it's side. I have also gone shabby to qualify for Simon Says Stamps Challenge which is shabby chic. I have used a crate paper DP which I have hoarded for an eternity, and also used it to make my flowers. I have inked  the edges of my layers with Distress Inks, then scuffed them with an edge distresser. I wanted to use my sewing machine, but when I went to get it out, horror of horrors, it was broken. So, that will mean a trip to my nearest sewing machine shop for a replacement part. So, I've just used faux stitching instead. I've used a sentiment from Elusive Images and a Martha Stewart punch to edge my green layers.

I love the little Image from Mo Manning, and I used the sentiment as I'm fed up with all the rain that we're getting now. Bye for now, Judith x

Hi Judith, I like everything about this card - the layout, the colours, the way you've used the punch, the flower embellishments, and a lovely sentiment too. Gorgeous!

PS. How's the photoframe coming on??!

I know what you mean about the rain Judith. At this moment I can't make my mind up which I hate most, the snow or the rain.

I do know I love your card though. Beautiful combination of all the elements you have used and that little image is wonderfully cute.

Well done on doing another two challenges!

This is a really lovely card Judith. Love the colour scheme and the flowers - infact all of it!

I've had a look at some of the challenge sites since you put your post on about them but I haven't done any more than add a couple to my blogger list - hoping to get a chance to have a go tomorrow - bad arm permitting. It's got to be better than staring at a blank card and wondering what to do!!
