3 Challenges in I - Stampin for the weekend, The Corrosive Challenge and Inspirational Card Sketches

Hi Everybody
3 in 1 this time around - really had to think about that before I rushed in like a bull in a china shop.

This card is based on the brilliant sketch by Tricia for ICS, and there are some lovely DT examples on the blog as well.

The Corrosive Challenge required an Anniversary Card, and I think this fits the bill - sometimes I don't like things too over the top.

Stampin' for the weekend requires something with a vintage look and I think this also fits that - the papers certainly do, as does the washed out water colouring.

I have used some of favourite papers (can they all really be favourites - I guess so otherwise I would not buy them, and the image and text is from a set of stamps called Summer by the sea, again coloured with water pencils.

Stamp - Stampin' Up
Paper - K & Co, Madeline
Flowers - Prima
Embellishements - The Hobby House
Thanks for stopping by.
