Hello!! Phew, blogger appears to be working again, even though yesterday's post disappeared, but I have reposted it below! Actually I'm gutted because I had a good trawl and looked at loads of things last night and commented too (I was so behind!!) and I think they have all gone :-( I'm so sorry if you are one of the people who's comment has got lost!!
Anyhow, I'm soooo glad it's Friday but oh my word another week that has flown by!!
Today's card uses the same Paper Shelter image as yesterday but a much simpler design
I've used the sketch from the Sweetest Thing
but made it rectangular not square and made the image portrait not landscape, so hope it still counts for the challenge!
I coloured the Paper Shelter image in duck egg blues, and then used some scraps from recent projects, no new piece of paper cut here!! I don't know about you but I have bags full of scraps that are generally too small to use on a project, but I feel so guilty chucking them out, not even into the recycling bin!! I think this sketch is an excellent way of using them up!!
I stamped round the edge of the image with a freebie stamp I was given at one of the stalls at Ally Pally - a pretty useful stamp so I'm really pleased :-) - and used the same caramel chalk eye to ink the edges of the papers.
The gingham ribbon is from Scrapbook Sisters and is left over from this weeks DT card. The swirl has been stamped directly on the card (I hate doing this, I am ALWAYS convinced I'm going to muck it up!!) and is by Autumn Leaves and the sentiment is by Woodware. The blue paper is the reverse of one of the papers, but I ran it through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss dots embossing folder for a bit of dimension and interest.
Hope you like it! I'm really pleased how it turned out :-) As much as I *love* piling it on a card, I do like the CAS look too :-)
I'd like to enter these challenges
Thanks for stopping by
