Solid as a rock

This is for the sketch for Cards und more 61:

I've only used solid colours, no patterned paper, for City crafter 120: solid as a rock. And all pieces came from my offcuts boxes (yes, I have 'boxes' - one for coloured solid cardstock and another for white) so this is another one for:

Pixie's crafty snippets 31
Squiggle stamps: stash attack - I used offcuts

I used a crafts too embossing folder for the raised spots for Crafty ribbons 25: seeing spots and dots. The stitched ribbon across the bottom and the Craftime sentiment are from stash.

The black bows with gems were from Hobbycraft and the blue buttons from Poundland - these are for:

Craft room: buttons and bows
Brown sugar 4: buttons & bows
Nutcrafters 23: butterflies and/or bows
Penny's 87: butterflies and/or bows
Digi doodle shops best 199: ribbons and bows

I chose the colours for:

Woodware UK week 63: black and white with a pop of blue
The house that stamps built DCC81: colour challenge - black and white plus one other colour
Crazy challenge 126: black, white & 1 other

I chose the Penny Black floral silhouette stamp for Gingerloft 45: silhouettes.

This is also for:

Paper-crafting journey: anything goes
DCC & friends 1: anything goes
Ribbon girl: select three items in a line - I chose flower, bow, buttons
Top tip Tuesday 82: focus on the ribbon
Really reasonable ribbon 53: bling with ribbon
Corrosive 155: they say it's your birthday
Fashionista 5: baby or birthday
Stampavie & more 173: birthday
Delightful: delightful birthday
DL.Art: happy birthday
Inky impressions: embossing
Card and scrap 36: use stamps on your contribution
No matter which 1: anything goes
Fashionable stamping 27: anything goes
Craft your passion 122: anything goes
Simply create too 19: anything goes
2 sisters 103: anything goes
Challenge up your life 75: everything goes
Make it Monday 101
