Something old, something new ...

... something borrowed, something blue - this is the theme of the challenge 104 on Creative Belli for the current fortnight. The 'K & Co papers, the blue mesh across the card and the birthday banner are all 'old', the flowers are 'new' (one was a creamy colour, so I coloured it blue with copics), the Penny Black 'city divine' was 'borrowed' - well, it was acquired in a stamped image swap, so it was sort of borrowed, and most of the card is blue.

'Blue and white' is the theme for Incy wincy 69 and 'feeling blue' for Pollycrafft 71.

This card is also for Penny Black Saturday challenge 128, where this sketch was provided:

It's also another card for Kathy's challenge on Daring Cardmakers 'We three ...' - in this case, flowers.

Hot date

'Hot date' is the name of the digi image I've used - I received it as a prize for winning this challenge on Freshly Brewed, with the card shown in this post. It's a really super image - so I'm linking for the current challenge on FB: show off your style (whatever my style is?! - I've yet to discover!).

For the card I've used Susan's sketch for Cute card Thursday 139:

I used a red sparkly stardust base card, with a black and white hearts background and stamped hearts and cupcakes (Kanban stamps) - cupcakes for Tuesday morning challenge 68 - , backed with black stardream sparkly card. There is a strip of white ribbon with red spots, but it's mostly covered up - d'oh! I wonder whether others do this - spend time putting something on the card only to find you cover it up so it was hardly worth it!

I've kept the colour scheme to black and white with a bit of red (apart from the drink in the mugs), which is for My partner in crafting crime 16: black and white + 1. The card is also for Other lovelies thoughtful Thursday 35: L - for Love.

It's also for:
