Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 54

This is my design card for today's Suzy Bee's bloomin' challenge 54: anything goes with a twist ... for a male.

I used Bugaboo stamps AKV golf - golf bag (kindly supplied by the sponsor of the challenge), colouring with spectrums and mounting on an offcut of Hunkydory foiled card.

The background pearlescent card with silver foiled stars has been in my stash for years and years. The diamond panel is another offcut - it was originally pearlescent white, but I coloured with spectrums.

Completely Christmas 37

For Completely Christmas 37 the twist today is 'let's see some blue', so I'm showing lots of blue! Please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the team and we hope to see your festive entries with some blue.

I'm also showing this card for my CHNC challenge 202: keep it flat - under 5 mm thick (to avoid higher postage costs in the UK particularly) - you can read more about the challenge by click on the link - I'd love to see your Christmas cards there.

A long time ago I took part in a sort of 'round robin' share-a-stamp group - I received this stamp to use and then pass on to the next one in the group. I went a bit mad at the time and stamped and stamped in various way and I still have a few of these left, including this one that where the stamp was inked with versamark and heat embossed with white detail powder. All the strips in the background are from my Christmas offcuts box, including the patterned piece that was originally run through the eBosser with the 8 x 8 'star of wonder' Embossalicious embossing folder which I then brushed over with stormy sky distress ink.
