Create with Connie & Mary Challenge #225

Hey Everyone

The design team at Create with Connie & Mary have come up with this interesting but fabulous sketch this week:

I initially started out with three circles on my card but couldn’t work out what image I wanted to stamp on them, so I changed it up and have gone with flowers instead. The spray of flowers isn’t exactly as precise as the three shapes above, but you can kind of see where I was going with it.  Again I’ve use this bold black striped paper from Howlstooth and Scaringbone DSP – I love the drama of it!

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers

Create with Connie & Mary #223 & Dynamic Duos #25

Hey Everyone

Can you believe another weekend is over?  I’m amazed at how quickly these weeks are flying by.  Not long before Christmas now……..

My card tonight is based on the sketch the design team over at Create with Connie & Mary have created.  I moved the bow on my card to the opposite side to balance out my butterfly, but apart from that, I’ve stuck to the sketch.

I’ve combined the sketch challenge with the colour challenge over at Dynamic Duos.  Their colour challenge this week is to use Basic Black and Pumpkin Pie.  Because I didn’t read the challenge correctly, I missed that the dessert option this week was to use die cuts – so I don’t have any die cuts on my card. Note to self – read the instructions before I start my card.

My mission is to try and use up as much DSP as I can, because what’s the use of holding onto it for “just in case I need it for another challenge”?  I found this bold striped Basic Black and Very Vanilla DSP and decided it would be the starting point for my card.  The rest just fell into place.  These are not my usual colours, but I’m happy with how this card turned out. Here’s my card:

Thanks for stopping by.
