Summertime birthday


I'm really not sure how I'm fitting in crafting when I really haven't got much spare time, but I seem to be making cards at odd times when I can. About ten days ago I decided to blog quite a few cards that I'd made, but not shown, having little time to do so. Having done that, I've got spurred on to make and show more cards.

I hadn't entered any sketch challenges for ages and ages, but I'm now on a bit of a roll, finding various ones and making cards for them. I'm enjoying doing this because it is prompting me to make various styles of card that perhaps I wouldn't have done without the sketches.

So, this card is for Tuesday morning sketches 457:


I used some decoupage bits to layer on to a die cut oval with scallops. The background paper was from my offcuts box. Sticky ribbon with gems was from Poundland (why does it look crooked in the photo when it doesn't irl? - lol!)  The  epoxy flourish was from Flourish with a bling (Australia) Jack, forest green.



This is also for:
