This week over at Through the Purple Haze Challenges, the challenge is a sketch.
This week it is Team A vs Team B, our monthly inter team challenge. So please, do pop over and vote for your favourite. The sponsors this week are Penny Black
and Stitchy Bear.
As it happened, this weekend was a crazy one for us! My youngest brother James, had his 21st birthday party, so I decided to make a card, following the sketch for him:
I used a brown board for the back, and used my *favourite* die, (any guesses??!!) "Scalloped lace circle die', using some green paper I recently bought (his favourite colour is green) As per usual, I have no embellishments that suit a card for a male, so I had to dig deep!!
I used a kraft tag, and cut out a slightly smaller size cream piece of card and embossed it, using my Happy Birthday folder. I then lightly smudged some blue and green ink over the raised letters to highlight them. I cut out the two digits out of glitter foam.
With the twine, I threaded some alphabet beads spelling out 'JAMES'. I attached some honeycomb greyboard that I inked in brown (really need to get some more of this honeycomb!!) and attached it with two pegs. I used some washi tape, and cut it to give the bunting look, to tie in with the sketch.
I cut some cream card, and used a ribbon punch to punch out the slots, and then threaded some music printed paper through (James is a drummer and loves music). I used a combo of buttons and flat backed pearls around the scalloped die. I took the printed sentiment from a lovely scrapbook kit that I recently bought second hand.
Thanks for stopping by, and hope you are having a wonderful Monday! Why not give the challenge a go?
I will be entering the card in some challenges.
