Four Challenges - One Card!


Penny Black (36) - Sketch
Stamp Something - Something Chocolate
Charisma Cardz (6) - Cupcakes or any other cake
Dutch Dare (35) - Buttons & Bows

This was a great sketch to follow with lovely themes to work with, I really enjoyed doing this one.

I started with a chocolate coloured base card to which I added a piece of paper with pink spots on, which if you look very carefully, you can see a couple of the spots at the bottom of the card. I didn't realise until I had finished the card that most of the spots would be covered up, duh! Never mind, I then cut some rectangles from various pink papers and layered them on top following the sketch. The image was stamped and coloured using my watercolour pencils and cut out using my Nesties. I then cut a frame with my Nesties and added some brads to the corners and put it on top of the image using foam pads. I then attached it to the card with more foam pads. I finished it off by adding the ribbon, buttons and bows.
