Sketch Saturday



No Christmas cards today. I've had 3 separate requests to make a 40th Birthday cards for friends. So, they are all getting the same design! I used the sketch from Sketch Saturdaywhich was not too complicated this week and I wanted to finish them all in one sitting. So fast and simple was the name of the game!
I used a stamp from Penny Black and coloured her with promarkers. the sentiment is from hero arts. I embossed a piece of coredinations Black magic paper and snaded it down to reveal the core colour. I've been doing this a lot recently! It adds a lot of texture to the card. The flowers are from my card kit from Sarah's Cards..lovely blooms every month!


I've even managed to decorate the insides of the cards! I couldn't fit the whole greeting on the front and I'm really pleased to give them a card with both inside and outside decorated. The cupcake stamp is also from Hero Arts and I used a quickutz die to cut the photocorners.

Right, back on to the Christmas cards today! Anyone else out there got more snow today?? Wow, what a winter we aer having up here..so crisp and cold and snowy! Beautiful!

Fantastic card Judy! The perfect image for a 40th and your colouring is perfection! The sanded black magic looks wonderful as do all the gorgeous details and decorating on the inside. We have no snow, but it is cold! Hope you're keeping warm and snuggly. Chris x

Your card is just lovely Judy. I love how you coloured that image and how you sanded the embossed paper but not evenly. The person who you made this for will be very pleased I'm sure! Thank you for joining us at Sketch Saturday this week!
