OK, first post with pictures of my work!
This card was made for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge number 67. I've been watching Karen's blog for a few weeks now and finally took the plunge to take part in the challenge. I love using sketches as a guide for both cards and scrapbook pages as they take so much of the guesswork out of the design, which for non-arty people like me really helps!! The sketch is below, and for this one I remained fairly faithful and didn't fiddle about too much, but as I have a thing for square cards at the moment that's how it ended up :)
OK, so my interpretation...
Paper: Jazmyne Dew Drops by Bo Bunny (I'm so into Bo Bunny!)
Stamp: Martini Nikki and Happy Birthday sentiment from Lady Bug Crafts Ink. Coloured with Copics, and edged with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink
Border Punch: Martha Stewart
I've used olive grosgrain and plum satin ribbon, a Prima Flower and Papermania glitter brad from my stash
The paper won't really photograph properly as its got glitter on the dots, I can see I'm going to need practice taking photos of my cards.
