2 - in 1 challenges....

So 2 challenges in 1 with this card :

Challenge 1 - Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Something Sweet

Challenge 2 - Create4fun - Sketch


The colour scheme is quite bright although the picture doesn't show the brown. It looks more black! But the colour scheme is dark brown and hot pink. Something quite sweet!

I also used lots of elements on this card : die cuts, embossing, pearls, ribbon and quilling. The image is also coloured in using promarkers.

Totally Gorjuss - Dimension


So this is my challenge card. As you can see from the picture above I have used lots of dimension on my card. The layers are all at different heights with the image layered as well along with some pearls (see picture below)


The layout, I interpreted the Mojo Monday Challenge Sketch for this week. Turned it round slightly. The colour scheme came about from the ribbon. I found it in my craft stash ;) I used promarkers on the image to give the image a strong deep colour.

Totally Gorjuss

So this is my card that I have made form the sketch :)
A good sketch as well, will defo be using this sketch again. Did take a while to make tho!! :-S


Had these papers for a while and never actually used them until today. Put the backing paper down against the gold card and found a scrap of the pink flower paper as well. The ribbon at the bottom of the card I have weaved into the lace stuff ( I have no idea what it's called!! lol)
Trust me when I say it took ages because it actually did! The colours are pretty muted for me as well to be honest so this was like a double challenge!

Create4fun Challenge

First time I have participated in the blog challenge. A great sketch tho.
Here is my card....

Black & White is my favourite colour scheme to use for wedding cards.
Image is Forever Friends and coloured with watercolour pencils. "Bride & Groom" wording is a peel off, congratulations is written on the ribbon and black peels have been used.

Just Magnolia - Paper Pleating

This is my card for the paper pleats challenge.....
The paper pleating was easy to do but I realised I had done it a different way!! I tried with stripes first but you couldn't see the pleating lol.
The image is my new Tilda stamp, She arrived last week so I thought I would use her for this challenge :)
Added some flowers, a charm and some pearls to finish the card off.

Whiff Of Joy - Colour Challenge

Haven't posted for while so I thought I better enter some blog challenges.

This is the first one I did this morning...

Whiff of Joy have posted there challenge for this week :

"This weeks challenge is a colour challenge. We would like to see you use the colours Aqua and Red!! These colours look beautiful together"

So this is my take on the challenge....

The paper I have had for ages and never known what to use it on, lucky really because this is the only paper I have that is aqua! lol. Haven't used my whiff of joy stamps either for a while. Added some gems for a bit of bling and a bit a ribbon as well :)
