Craftmad January Card Sketch Challenge

Firstly, I am happy to have completed one of Kaye's card sketch challenges over at Craftmad this year.  Only 11 to go. :-)  I had fun creating this messy card.   

When I make cards I really like to make them for someone so that my card can take a little more direction.  I also wanted to send more snail mail to my son while he is at Uni than I did last year.  Who doesn't like receiving something in the mail?  So thought if I would just make a heap of cards and send them to him.  Another thing I want to continue doing this year is using up my stash.

So this card started with the Craftmad January Sketch (here).  Next I found the stripey paper which has come from a magazine at some stage.  It has a distressed look about it so I distressed all the edges of the covering card stock layers.  Then added some orange handmade paper, Bazzill Bling card stock and a strip of the blue from the background paper. I sprayed the card with SU Silver Foil Spritz.  I have had these little round stickers in my collection for ages and thought this would be a good chance to use them.  They say:

'Moment to Shine'
'You be You'
'Dreams come True'

Thanks for visiting, have a wonderful day.

  2. Happy New Year!! How's your weather been up there? Bit cold down here - perfect timing for the kids swimming lessons! - but slowly warming back up! I love this card. And the idea of making a heap to send off to your son, I love nothing more than getting something in the post {provided of course that it does not require me to make payment lol}. Have a great day xx
