I've managed to get some precious time in my craftroom today, I really should have been tidying it up but instead I sat and made a few cards. Today I'll share one with you that I made for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge;
This is a lovely simple sketch with so many different possibilities, I made a Birthday card as I have quite a few coming up.
I don't tend to use blue very much for birthday cards ( unless it's for a male card) but I had some nice papers on my desk and this gorgeous ribbon so I decided to go out of my comfort zone a bit.
I cut a large blue circle out and layered a small doily on top of it, then added my sentiment stamped onto a Labels 14 die cut which was first stamped with a Waltzingmouse Holiday Labels 14 stamp. The sentiment is from the new Compact sentiments set.
The mesh ribbon from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop is so lovely to work with it ties such fabulous bows and holds it's shape so well. The finishing touch is a hydrangea prima flower embellished with a blue button.
I'm also entering this into the following challenges;
Crafts and me - Lets see a Circle
St Lukes charity challenge - Spring into Spring
I have a couple more cards to share but I'll save those for another day.
Thanks for stopping by,
