Pink and green

This card is for One stitch at a time 24: sketch and/or 'use a little pink':

I've used Bo Bunny papers - the background is My darling Bella and the circle was cut from another BP paper, which I think is called darling dots - it was a small piece I rescued from the 12 x 12 that I mainly wasted the other day.

The bright green card was embossed with a cuttlebug folder and inked with orchid pastel chalk inkpad. The edges of the stamped sentiment were inked with lime pastel chalk inkpad.

Off on an adventure

'Off on an adventure' is challenge 16 on Cards for men. I've used the sketch for Critter 25, which has the added twist of using a minimum of two ribbons.

The double sided paper is K & Co Donna Ingemanson.

It's also for:

Scrappy frogs: 'a stitch in time'
2sisters 4: 'stitching'
Pals paper arts 54: 'a masculine KISS'

The shirt off your back

Order of the opus gluei challenge 66 is an unusual and novel one: 'use 'the shirt off your back' - in my case, it's the blouse. I photographed part of this blouse to give me some background paper:

The blouse material is a bit crinkled which gives a slightly offbeat look to the photo and print out.

I used CPS sketch 178 (love this - will remember it and use it again):

The spotted strip of paper is American crafts 'confetti'. The sentiment stamp is from Hobbycraft (think it was in one of their bargain bins).
