Sketch & Stash Challenge #3

Woo-hoo - no school today because of the snow! So I'm going to spend today indoors in the warm...and I can't believe it but I've made a card already today! There's a fab sketch for the new Sketch & Stash Challenge - I'm sure I'm going to use it again! I've used it to make a boys card - I always seem to find them difficult, but this one came together really quickly. My new items are: the fab Penny Black image ('Bubble of Joy') - received last week in an image swap with my lovely friend Pauline; and the gorgeous BasicGrey 'Granola' papers that I bought in the sales after Christmas, but hadn't got round to using yet. The embossed background was created with the Cuttlebug 'Spots & Dots' folder on Core'dinations card, then distressed with sand paper, the sentiment stamp is by Hero Arts ('Anytime Messages' set), and the buttons are by Papermaina.


Off to find some more challenges to do..

A gorgeous card Helen and it's very nice that you can stay at home and craft LOL! I love the image and your lovely colouring. The Granola papers are one of my favourite BG papers very good for the difficult boy cards. Chris x
