Well here is my entry for the TGF's Monday Mania Challenge. This week's challenge is a sketch challenge which was inspired by the this card by one of The Greeting Farm members who goes by the name of "Dictionary". Its a really cute card.
And here is my take of the sketch.
You will have to excuse my photography, I am not yet very good at taking these types of photo's. If anyone has some tips on taking good photo's of your projects I would really appreciate it.
For this card I have used Bazzil Cardstock, TGF Angel Anya stamp, some odd ribbons and flowers from my stash, a random rub-on from my stash and butterfly paper from DCWV's "Garden Party" Stack. Copics used include numbers E50,E51,E53,C1,BG10,V000,R20,R02,E31,E33 and E35. Kindy Glitz in "Crystalina" was also used. To make my card, I created a scalloped border around the butterfly paper by tearing paper along a "Fiskars" template which includes a scalloped edge ruler (I know, sad, I don't have any Spellbinder dies YET!!) and tearing and gluing the strips down so they just peep out from behind my background paper. I distressed the edges of my paper using a distressing tool and ranger distress inks in walnut before sewing the paper to the card with my sewing machine. I cut the circles using the same Fiskars template. The doily was distressed with distress inks in walnut and spun sugar and practically everything else was distressed using walnut distress ink. I loooooove my distress inks. That's pretty much it.
Now because one of my resolutions is to enter as many challenges as I can I am going to enter this card into a couple of other challenges. These other sites include: Flutterby Wednesday's Challenge #136 (include a butterfly, angel or fair) and Cute Cards Thursday Challenge #146 whose theme is "Out With The Old" I used some of my old paper and ribbons as well as a stamp I had not yet got around to using. There are many talented entries and even more talented Designers so be sure to check them out.
