Last weekend I started this card for Get Sketchy and didn't come around to finishing it up, until now. Of course too late for the challenge, but who cares :) ? Again I tried to make a vintage card and even though the stamp isn't really vintage, I think it gives that feeling. I used colored pencils to color the Tiddly Ink image and tried to make the white lace more fitting, by inking it up with distress ink. I distressed all edges. Supplies: White cardstock, October Afternoon- The Thrift Shop papers, Fiskars Borderpunch, Crafts too cornerpunch, lace, Zva Creative swirls, Prima Marketing flowers, Tiddly Inks digistamp, distress ink Tim Holtz, colored pencils Derwent.

And the last card is for DCL. I made a card for a colleagues wedding day, coming up in July. I have several more to make and I think the romantic papers of Paper mania are just great for it.

And here is my card for this weeks sketch from Card Patterns & the challenge from Dutch Card Lovers. A recipe this time, a round card, stitching & flowers.
And it was a hard challenge for me this round. Creating a round card. I search the whole house for suitable moulds to trace circles to use for my card..... Stitching was also a struggle, I don't have a sewing machine and by hand it was really bad... so I redid and make faux stitches by punching holes and tracing a black line. Of course it isn't the real thing, so I wonder if it's sufficient for the challenge.. I added the text in the heart of the digistamp.
On the photo it isn't visable, it's way too dark, but I used purple & pink on the dot papers of Bo Bunny, but on the photo, the purple almost looks black.
