3 challenges in 1


Morning everyone,

Here is a card I've been working on for a few days now and just can't seem to get it so that I'm completely happy. I followed the sketch from a spoonfull of sugar which was kindly provided by the incredibly talented Lim. I decided to use a WOJ stamp so that I could combine it with the WOJ challenge and then because of the autumn colours I could also enter it for Cute Card Thursday .

I love the layout of the card and the papers and the ribbon and everything but just struggled with the image part....I originally had Melinda helping Angel on a white background but when I stuck that on it was like WHOOO!...too white, so I tried to distress it a bit....NO! that had to go straight in the bin. So back to the drawing board again, using a different stamp and a coloured cardstock.....like I say, not completely happy, but it's so much better than the first attempt lol!!

Here are the details anyway
  • Image: Willow with cookies from WOJ
  • Medium: Promarkers
  • Paper: hmmm, don't know
  • Ribbon and brads from stash

Thanks for looking, have a super Sunday
