Friday 10 June 2016


It's Friday evening here and I spent some time in my craft room tonight making this card for a few challenges:

I colored up Blanche using the colors from Color Throwdown and to meet the Aging with Attitude challenge at Art Impressions.  I also used the sketch from Retro Sketches and the Summer Fun theme at Cardz 4 Galz.

I used a white card base and on top of that a white panel die-cut with Wonky Stitched Rectangles.  I also cut a Wonky Stitched Rectangle from Raspberry Fizz cardstock and a Wonky Circle from Royal Velvet.  For the crossed over lines, I cut thin strips of Melon Berry cardstock and die-cut them with a die from the Basic Stitch Lines set.

I finished the card with some sequins and a fun sentiment, also from Art Impressions.

Thanks for visiting!

What a great mix of challenges! That gal looks like a tough old bird. For a minute I thought one of the things she was holding was a tool bag and I thought "You go girl! What a way to mix business with pleasure!" Your coloring, as always, is fabulous and now I'm pretty sure I need those wonky circles. :|
