Yummy cardsketch!!

I always like a good challenge and the lovely Helen’s blog, Card and a Half, has a great monthly card sketch challenge.  I thought I’d have a go and here is what I came up with…

Rather than layering the rectangles on top of the backing, I cut out a black frame with 3 rectangluar holes.  I used foam tape to raise up the black frame from the grey pattern background sheet.  I made some gorgeous little roses (see the tutorial by the beautiful Belle here) and punched out some little butterflies with my Martha Stewart punch.  A liberal sprinking of bling was obviously obligatory!!! And the little sentiment is a sticker that I backed with card, trimmed and mounted on the black frame with some more foam tape.  All the paper and the sentiment sticker are from the Stella and Rose range from My Mind’s Eye.  Really like this little card and can see myself using this sketch regularly.

Thanks for the challenge Card and a Half…really enjoyed it!

delicious slice of cards

I’ve been doing the Little Scrapbooking Shop’s monthy CyberScrap again this weekend, which has been brilliant.  I’m particularly in love with the project designed by Sandie – making a set of triangular cards featuring idioms that fit inside a little cake box.  I used KaiserCraft’s Lovestruck range of papers and bits and pieces from my stash to make mine.

Sandie found the pattern for the cake box here and there are heaps of cool templates to print out for other things too.  This is going to make a great gift for a friend of mine.
