Friendship card

I really struggled with this one. I made a rod for my own back by trying to make a card to fit four challenges again - the colours got me!

This is for, Copic Colour Challenge - 'E47, BG23, R85', Sketch & Stash - 'sketch', Creative Inspirations - 'friendship' and La-La Land Crafts - 'stitching'. Phew....

OK so starting with the Copic Colour challenge, I had two of the colours but not R85 so improvised by using Rose Pink ProMarker instead. The cute digi image is Winnie from Willow Design Stamps. The card is based on the sketch from Sketch and Stash and one of their rules is that you follow their sketch and use some new stash and name it on our blogs, so the new stash I've used is the Winnie image AND the two patterned papers which are by Imaginisce - I got them at Hobbycraft earlier this week.

The friendship tag is from Craftwork cards, swished over with a pink Memento ink pad and I did the stitching around the edge with a Plasma Pink Galaxy Marker. The flowers are cut from matching papers with a Cuttlebug die with glitter gems in the middle coloured to match with a brown peel off pen.

Making this has made me forget I woke up in a total mood this morning, We overslept and I didn't get time to wash my hair which generally puts me in a tut - Skippy has nothing on me!



  1. Hi sweetie - hope your mood's improved, being able to create a card as fabby as this would definately put me in a good mood :)

    Big Hugs
