Mojo Monday #447 & Create with Connie & Mary #406

Hey Everyone

A couple of people have asked me why I don’t make many of my vintagey over-layered style of cards anymore.  I think it’s a combination of time (well, lack of time – they really do take me longer to finish them) and also the negative comment that was left on my blog last year that all my cards looked the same in this style.  I’m going to try and find the time to mix up my cards so that I have a combination of both clean and vintage.

I’ve combined today’s card for two challenges – the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday and the colour challenge at Create with Connie & Mary.  Here are their inspiration pics:



Here’s my card:


Thanks for stopping by.
