If I've managed the technology there should be some candy above this post if you'd like to enter!
I got me a new Memory Box Die at the Stitch and Craft fair when I went with best matey Julie. Okay - actually I got four of them! They were bought with birthday money from my lovely hubby after a bit of negotiation. At first he said I could have £10. "But I have to pay Julie for the entrance fee which is nearly £7.00 and I need lunch money too", I said. "Well then you have £3 for lunch!", said Tom. But he relented and actually gave me £100. It was my 50th birthday after all!
I used this Memory Box Die flourish (behind my image). I thought, when I bought it, that it would be perfect for making supremely elegant CAS cards but as it turns out, I've used it to replace the inner horizontal stripe on this sketch which I've shortened to match. I've made a cutie birthday card for my friend's daughter using one of the Miss Anya Love images you can find here, coloured in Copics. She is part of my very old stash! My papers came from my scraps drawer. I cut the flowers with my EK Success Retro flower punch, added some MS punched and stamped folliage and actually lined them up down the left hand side so as not to obscure my sentiment stamp. A flourish of Marianne die leaves added a bit of balance on the other side of the card. Hopefully you can still see the sketch.
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
