Create with Connie & Mary Challenge #239

Hey Everyone

Can you believe it’s Thursday again? I have an extra day to my weekend this week, so I’m going to catch up on some cardmaking as well as prepare for a card class I have on Sunday.  I always manage to leave my cutting until the last minute, even though I promise myself each time I will prepare in advance.

This weeks challenge at Create with Connie & Mary is a sketch challenge.  Give me a sketch challenge over a colour challenge any day!


So it was only after I made my card did I read the word “greeting” down in the left corner – how could I miss it?  Well I did and then it was too late to add one.  So my card is a little different from the sketch – I’m using a bit of creative licence again!

My card was made around a dyed seam binding bow I had sitting on my desk that had been discarded from another project.  It’s been sitting there for over a week now and I was determined to use it up.  When I dyed it, I was unhappy with the tie-dyed effect that I created. I must’ve squished it too hard when I was running it under water so my Midnight Muse Ink kind of ran out of it.  The project I was originally going to use it on was a clean project, so this messy Midnight Muse bow didn’t work on it. I like it much better on my vintage messy card.  Here’s what I came up with:


We’d love for you to join us so head over to the challenge and check out the gorgeous inspiration the Design Team have created.  While you’re there, link up a card too!

Thanks for stopping by.
