Paper Play sketches.

Paper play sketches has a colour challenge.

These colours gave me a chance to dig into my scrap bags and find co-ordinating colours for the card.
I started with the lilac coloured cardstock, found the crimson vellum and a piece of green paper.
Like a leaf or flower, it grew from there.
The stickers I used are from Echo Park "Life is good" range.

This card is for a friend's daughter who has just completed high school.

Allsorts challenge & Merry Monday

Allsorts challenge wants things with wings.

I'm still on the Christmas cards but this one I'm including a penguin.
I inked my alphas as they looked too white as plain alphas.

I'm also adding this to Merry Monday where they want a penguin on a card.

Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Here's another card using the pointsettia papers PLUS Ribbon.
It is for Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge where anything goes .

Again I fussy cut the flowers and mounted the 2 smaller ones on magic mount.
The sentiment is recycled from last years Christmas cards.(Do you do that?)

Jingle Belles and Sketchy Saturday

Jingle Belles has this tic tac toe grid this time.

I've gone across the bottom row.

My second card is for sketchy Saturday.
I fussy cut around the flower and used some maroon ribbon to co-ordinate with the flower.

Li'l red wagon & Create with Connie &Mary

The challenge at Li'l red wagon is to use leaves.
As it is spring here, I can't get into autumn cards,so instead I'm making Christmas cards.
My leaves are the holly leaves on the washi tape I used.
Hope you like it!

Over at Create with Connie and Mary there is a sketch.
I've used it to make another Christmas card.

Off the rails scrapbooking.

This is my entry for "Off the Rails" this month where the theme is steampunk.

My photo was taken at the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris.
Because the subject of the photo is industrial, I went with the steampunk look on my layout.

Merry Monday

I started by putting a P/L card through my cuttlebug to give a circle texture.

Next I used a Christmas tree die cut on the tag.
Around the trees branches I used red rhinestones and in the corners, pale green pearls.
Finally I mounted it on the card featuring a circular patterned papers.
My sentiment was a separate tag.
