Brown stamped flowers

This card is for today's sketch for 365 cards day 13, which means I'm now up to date with 365 challenges.

When I looked this evening to see what this week's challenge 94 was on Order of the opus gluei.I found that it was 'reach out and get a handful' - This week we want you to sit down at your workdesk, reach out to those bits and bobs that are still sitting there from your last project (or 2 or 3) and make something.

So I did just that! The My Mind's Eye papers I used were left over yesterday from making the card you can see here. The main background paper is double sided so I used the other side for the triangle. I used my favourite trees stamp from Inkadinkado for Crazy 4 challenges 78: a tree, and then stamped Hero Arts printed flowers on to the other spotty paper, cutting them out with a little margin around them - this is for the 'home baked' challenge on Daring cardmakers - to make your own embellishments - and also for Sugar creek hollow challenge: handmade flowers.

As the card was made from scraps I'm also entering it for Tuesday throwdon 39.

The theme on Sunday stamper 145 today is 'brown eyed girl' - to use brown, so I'm linking for that.

Simon says: anything goes

Easy peasy easel card

The challenge on 365 cards for day 9 was 'do that decade: the 90s'.

The 90s were very important and special years in my life because I first went out with John in 1990 and we married in 1991, so this card reflects a personal view of the 90s - I thought an anniversary card would be appropriate.

This is a very easy peasy easel card made from a Kanban kit, so there was very little work involved - just some cutting and sticking. It's an A5 width card.

Sorry there is glare from the flash photo, but the first photo does give a better idea of the silver foiling than the second one.

Easter cross

This is for the sketch on Daisy Doodles 28:

I've used a DD digi image that I won recently: 'floral cross' and coloured with copics. I've chosen the colour scheme for Copic creations 45: complementary colours - opposite sides of the colour wheel. The background paper is from Forever Friends spring time pack, stitched sticky ribbons and sentiment from stash.
