Hot Diggity Dog Card

I'm absolutely chuffed to bits with this card and with the gorgeous sunshine which meant I didn't have to get my light box out.

As a camper and dog owner I just love this image from Hot Diggity Dog.  The papers are also by Hot Diggity Dog and co-ordinate with the spring colours perfectly.  I've added a little extra interest with one of the little frog stamps and some leftover peel off bits.

Katy's Sketch Challenge 6th to 19th June

This is not my usual style of card, with the strips in the background but I enjoyed the challenge of doing something out of my comfort zone and after all that's the point of challenges!

I don't think flowers suit this range so I made some little tags using the tiny little stickers and bits from the  Designstax to make little tags where flowers are positioned on the sketch.

 

Ingredients:
Cardstock Stickers - Best Of British
6x6 Designstax - Best Of British 
Colorset Recycled Paper - Bright Red

I am entering this card into Katy's Sketch Challenge 6th to 19th June.

Best of British Male Card

I'm loving this really simple layout and the lovely shades of blue that make the Beefeater's red coat really stand out.


Ingredients:

I was going to enter this card into two challenges (really getting into this multi-tasking lark!) but ding bat me missed the deadline for entries at Sketch Saturday Week 210 DOH!  So that leaves Craft Challenge 158 - Male Card.
