Just Add Ink #140

Hey Everyone

It’s Friday again so that means it’s time for another challenge at Just Add Ink.  This week Trish has given us the challenge to:

Just Add……Chevrons

So initially when I saw the challenge was going to be Chevrons, I had to search the net. I’d never heard of them but luckily google knew what they were.  I decided to overload my card with them and in fact every layer (and there are a few on my card) has them. Here’s what I came up with:

Head over to Just Add Ink and check out the gorgeous cards the design team have created using Chevrons. Thanks for stopping by.

Dynamic Duos #5 & Deconstructed Sketch #54

Hey Everyone

So everyone I know is at our Stampin’ Up! Convention this weekend.  I tried to ignore it because I’m spewy I couldn’t make it.  This didn’t work so I searched everyone’s blogs and stalked facebook just so I could get snippets of information of what’s been happening.  I decided this made me sadder I couldn’t attend, so I headed to my craft room to enter challenges instead – this has cheered me up!

Anyway enough about me, over at the Dynamic Duos their theme this week is Bold and Sassy.

I’ve probably never used these colours together ever, so when I started my card I figured I’d go safe with a feminine florally card – that didn’t work. So I browsed a few challenges and found this weeks Deconstructed Sketch.

As soon as I saw this sketch I changed my mind from a feminine card to a masculine card and because the sketch has so much going on, it was perfect for a man card.  I struggle with man cards purely because I can’t tizz them up with bows and bling.  This sketch was able to give me the “fullness” I like in a card

Here’s my card:

Thanks for stopping by.
