Emily's Sketch Challenge

As promised, I'm back with the other card I made yesterday. The challenge on Stamp Something this week is a sketch by the talented Emily, one of my fellow DT members, and there's some more wonderful candy up for grabs!





I've used an image kindly sent to me by Heather and I've kept her simple and coloured her with Marvys and added some Glamour Dust to the gift and ribbon for a bit of added sparkle. The DP is from My Mind's Eye which I bought a month or so ago and fell in love with immediately....I just love this colour and managed to find some shades of Bazzill c.s. in my stash which matched it perfectly! I've embossed the lighter strip with the Swiss Dots folder and added a sentiment from Pink Petticoat and a flower brad from Papermania.


Have decided this card will be ideal to give to Lewis's friend tomorrow.....she's at that age where she's growing out of cute cards so thought a more "grown up" one would be appropriate! Also glad I don't have to post this one - because of the number of layers I've used, it weighs a ton!!

Just lovely Jo! Perfect for a "growing up" card too. Great colors, that printed paper is beautiful, I can see why you fell in love with it! Love how you switched up the sketch a bit too. Great embossing and accents! I love it, as I'm sure Lewis's friend will too.

Hope you're having a good week. So sorry that I haven't emailed lately, I promise to make time very soon. The wedding invites are almost finished and my life will be back to normal! I want to hear all about how things have been lately! I've been thinking about you! :)

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.



Birthday Wreath Card

Saw this design on one of AMD TV shows and fell in love with it immediately so set about making two different projects with the same design.
This is the first...


...a birthday card for a friend of mine.  I haven't quite finished the other project so I will show that another day.
