I have made this card for three challenges and hope it fits in with them all ok. The first is Truly Scrumptious - Follow sketch with the optional theme of Golden Oldie. I don't really have any old stamps as cardmaking is only new to me, but this would have been another one of the first stamps I would have purchased. The second challenge is for Cute Card Thursday - Theme of trees and/or leaves - this is one of only two similar stamps I have with a tree on it and the third challenge is Totally Gorjuss - Colour Aqua. I have had these papers for a few years for scrapbooking and never used them as never seemed to have the right photograph for them. As the paper wasn't double-sided I think I would like a little gem for the folded corner, but don't have any in these colours, so will add one later.
Cardstock - Doodlebug
Patterned Paper - Doodlebug
Image - Pink Gem
Coloured with Distress Inks
Ribbon - Doodlebug
Sentiment - Free with magazine
Cardblank - Craftwork Cards - Normally I just would cut my cardstock to size and make a card, but have seen quite a few people use these card blanks, so thought I would give them a try. They are really sturdy and come with matching envelopes, which is good, as quiet a few of my earlier cards, I can't get envelopes to fit. 6 x 6 is just too small and 8 x 8 is too big.
Thanks for popping by and your comments are much appreciated.
