Freshly Made Sketches #67 & Pals Paper Arts #150

Hey Everyone

It’s an extremely hot day here in Melbourne today so I went out to my room early this morning before it got too hot and my brain fried. I’m loving being on holidays as I can craft during the day.

The card I made this morning is for two challenges – Freshly Made Sketches and Pals Paper Arts.



Melon Mambo isn’t a colour I use very often but teamed with Basic Black and Basic Gray I think it makes for a pretty colour combination for my niece’s birthday card – she’ll be turning 20. For something different I added some brads to the pleated ribbon to give it a studded effect.

  1. Love the ribbon treatment! Great card! I would also love to take some of your heat for a just a bit….it was 24 degrees below zero here this morning!

  2. Actually that Strip speaks to me! Scaringbone huh! Wow! Stunning card. Always love this color pallet, so smart! Little black dress & pink lipstick you know!

  3. Narelle, this card is so beautiful! Wow. Your niece is going to love it! I love the colours and love what you’ve done with the ribbon! As always I love the layers! I will also trade you for some heat! Warmer here today but still -14!!! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

  4. Oh how I wish I was telling people that it was really hot today! We’ve been in a bit of a deep freeze here and yesterday when I drove to work it was about 11 degrees (and that’s Fahrenheit)! Your card is gorgeous as always. I think you might be the only person I know who can make a gray leaf look natural!
