2 Challenge Cards


I have made 2 challenge cards this afternoon. My first card is for the Basic Grey Challenge which was a sketch challenge. This is the first time I have taken part in this challenge because until a few days ago I didn't have any Basic Grey products. However, after seeing so many lovely cards made with the Wassail papers I decided to buy some with my Christmas money. I am also entering this card for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge which is to use something you got for Christmas or something you bought yourself over the holidays.

B/P = Basic Grey Wassail
Image = Summer Tilda with bow (I coloured her arms brown so it looks like she is wearing a jumper under her top).
Flowers = X-Cut punches with a gem added.
Organza ribbon = Wilkinsons

My second card covers 4 challenges.
1) I followed the sketch on Sketch Saturday.
2) The Penny Black Saturday Challenge is "embossing and I have embossed the corners with the Cuttlebug.
3) Anything Goes at Lili of the Valley.
4) Charisma Cardz is a new challenge and their first challenge is the theme pink.

Image = Penny Black (not sure of the name as I received this image from a blogging friend)
B/P = Tracy Porter
Sentiment = Magazine freebie
Flowers = From stash with a "legless brad" added (not sure what they are called lol!).

Sorry about the photos not being very good but I haven't got time to edit them as I am going out for a meal with the girls at work as one of our receptionists has got a new job.

Any comments are most appreciated.
