I'm sure this week has gone by more quickly than ever, although I have been particularly busy and have also fitted in a birthday and Daughter visiting too, so it's perhaps not surprising that it's Friday and I've not yet uploaded my entries for last Saturday's challenges! So, without further ado...
I chose to combine last week's Crazy 4 Challenges (C4C26) and Papercraft Planet Sketch Challenge for this card. Crazy 4 Challenges challenge this week was to 'create a card/project using at least 3 different textures' and I used the Papercraft Planet sketch for the layout:
Here's my take:
Image: Vintage download from Digital Two for Tuesday
Papers: Kanban, 'Mini Leaves Mint' A4 cardstock and Bazzill plain cardstock
I wanted a fairly simple colour combo for this card so I've stuck with just the two papers and let the image and flowers provide the rest. I ran the Bazzill through my Wizard with the Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' embossing folder (texture 1). The white background card is generic hammered white (texture 2). I added a satin ribbon (texture 3) to complete the three textures but, in fact, there are at least three more: the button, the brads and the flowers. I puched some fronds out with my new punch (more later) and added a simple sentiment to complete the card.
Now then, yesterday was my birthday (21 again, of course) - and thank you all for your birthday wishes, they were much appreciated - so I got to pick what I wanted to do. My darling OH is not a great lover of craft shops because I tend to spend a long time looking at things that non-crafters simply don't appreciate! But yesterday we went to a large craft shop about 20 miles away as a special treat, so that I could spend some of my birthday money. This shop has the largest selection of punches I have ever seen in one place! I could have spent hundreds on just punches alone but was very good and bought only a couple of leaf punches and a couple of flower centres, ready for my other new flower punches arriving through the post. We spent a happy couple of hours there and I was quite restrained overall. But I did so enjoy myself!
So I'm now another year older (ho-hum!), no wiser and a little poorer after yesterday's foray. But age is only a state of mind so I've decided I really am just 21, with the benefit of 26 years' experience!
Going off to Mr Linky.
