Coffee and Cream...

Inspired by Simon Says Stamp challenge - Coffee and Cream, I made the following card:
I used my PB stamp, Yearning, and coloured it with my copics (warm grey and earth tones). I used My Mind's Eye Union Square "Perfect" Damask print paper.
I am entering my card in the Simon Says Stamp Challenge (Coffee and Cream) and the Penny Black @ Allsorts challenge (Say it with Flowers).

Card Patterns Sketch 103

Happy 2nd Anniversary to those at Card Patterns! I've only been visiting their blog for a short time, but it is such a great blog - great sketches, wonderful designers.

For sketch 103, I have chosen to make a card that can be used for a boy's birthday. I haven't made a lot of those and find them a little trickier to make - as I tend to want to add flowers and gems.

I am also entering this card for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Mens Cards.

Sorry about not having a different title on this post to include the Penny Black challenge! I realised too late.

I just realised that I did not use a PB image/sentiment for this card. So I cannot be part of the PB Saturday challenge. Sorry about that.

Cardabilities Card Sketch #25

I bought a new PB hedgehog stamp yesterday and wanted to try colouring it a little differently than normal. I stamped the image in Memento Rich Cocoa and coloured it with my Copics (W-3, W-5, E08 and E11). I started making the card with another image in mind, but once I bought this one I knew it was perfect for the card.

I'm entering it in Cardabilities Card Sketch #25. I really liked the DT's cards - Holly's and Rhonda's especially.

Sorry it looks a little crooked - I photographed it on the same colour background as the base of the card and when I trimmed the picture I realized I couldn't trim it exactly square, and it's hard to tell the background from the base. :)
