For A friend

This card is for:-

1. Sophisti-cats - challenge # 11 - Sketch

2. Cupcake Crafts - Digital Images

3. Colour Create - challenge 32 - Red, Green and White

I've done this card with a vintage feel and used Distress inks for colouring all of the image, i'm really improving with these and enjoy using them. I've distressed all the edges with Aged Mahogany, usually I struggle with this colour as it's so deep but it went ok this time. I have made this card for my friend Sarah, her little girl Poppy goes to Nursery with my youngest Bobby. Poppy is adorable and she gets on well with Bobby, and they make lovely friends.

Sophisticats gave us a brilliant sketch to use and one that can be used again and again.

Cupcake Crafts asked us to use a digital image and my image can be found at Simply Inger, check her blog out she has some wonderful creations. Her work is totally amazing and a real inspiration. If you like elegant, vintage and stunning her blog is the place to be. I pop over there all the time even when there's nothing new on, as I still look through what I've seen before and I still get amazed at the beautiful works of art.

Colour Create has a colour combo this time which is Red, Green and White. And ideal for all those Christmas cards we need to do.

Happy crafting
