As you can see all 3 cards are variation on a theme....I used some SU patterned paper that I bought a long time ago. The plain cardstock is the recycled card by K&CO-I mentioned this cardstock in one of my earlier posts...I can't rate it highly enough...this cardstock is really good quality and quite unusual in that there are so many different hues of each colour in each pack.Now if I use ribbon on my card I normally just tie a bow...but I thought it was about time I tried to do something a bit different, so I folded my ribbon instead. I took 3 strips of ribbon, folded it and then put a tiny stitch through the middle to hold in place. I then just threaded it through the buckle slider and added a gem to cover the stitch.
The card below is the one I will be entering into the Penny Black Saturday challenge.
This week there is a sketch to follow...here it is...
Now it is very unusual for me to enter any challenge...least of all a sketch challenge....I find it difficult to enter challenges due to time constraints because of work....but when I have attempted a sketch challenge before I start off with good intentions....but half way through I realise I've wandered off and done my own sweet thing and invariably it ends up bearing no resemblance to the original sketch!
So with this sketch I told myself I had to stick with the plan and am pleased that I did as I really enjoyed working with it. The only thing I've left out are the flowers as I felt with a ribbon and a buckle it may have looked a bit overdone, but I hope I can be forgiven for this slight deviation lol.
I have to say I'm disappointed with these photos...the cards look so much better IRL...but it is really overcast here today...I may have another go if it brightens up later.
Well, I'm off to go and enter my card into the challenge...see you again soon peeps.
