Inspirational Card Sketches -DT Card / Challenges


Hello to everyone, hope the kids are enjoy their time at home. The weather isn't great but at least it is dry. Today we have another sketch for you over at ICS. I had a lot of fun playing with this sketch. I used my MM Slice to cute the shaped squares for this card.

Both of the papers are from "Designer Extreme Vol 1" available at Bearly Mine Designs. I know alot you you are fans of these papers and it is rumoured there are more papers to come. My stamp is From High Hopes and I have coloured with SU Watercolour Crayons and Spica Pens. Edged everything with a green Fluid Chalk Ink Pad. The Butterfly is an MS Punch and the buttons and gems are from stash.

My Friend Nikki, from Bunny Zoes Crafts is this weeks sponsor at ICS. Nikki is offering a great prize of Christmas Charms and Rubber Stamps to the lucky winner.

I do hope you can enter this weeks challenge, a super sketch from Dawn and a great prize. The DT have stunning pieces for you to see on our challenge blog.
My card also fits in with this weeks challenges at
Creative Card Crew - PolkaDots
PaperTake Weekly - Pick Your Own Colours.
Have a lovely week,
Happy Crafting
