CR84FN22 and CPS-Card Sketches......

Well it's a beautiful spring day here in the U.K. with the sun shining and the birds singing and I've got some spare time this afternoon to make a card as my daughter's back from Uni for Easter and she's helped me to do my jobs around the house.
This week over at CR84FN is a gorgeous colour combo of kraft,green and brown,when I saw the colours I thought they would be perfect for a male card which I tend to shy away from normally. Last month I had the pleasure of been Guest Designer for this fabulous colour challenge blog,this month is the turn of Silke Ledlow so why not check out her beautiful creations and also get inspiraion from the rest of the Design Team at CR84FN.


Also while I was blog hopping I saw this sketch over at CPS-Card Sketches and decided to combine the two challenges together.


Here's my card inspired by the colours and sketch:


All supplies on this card are from Stampin' Up including the new paper range Botanical Gazette,the colours I've used are Chocolate Chip,Crumb Cake (kraft) and Garden Green.I distressed all the edges with the distressing tool and inked the edges with Crumb Cake ink. I then stamped the banners once onto Crumb Cake cardstock and then stamped again onto the green butterfly paper,cut out the centre triangle and layered it onto the kraft banner.

Supplies

Papers- Botanical Gazette (double-sided)
Stamps-Party this Way (banner & sentiment)
Punches-Two Step Bird,Word Window
Embellishments-Regal Collection Buttons,Linen Thread


I'd just like to let everyone know that Scrapbookers Anonymous have got a DT call up at the moment,they are looking to add to the existing DT for a minimum of 6 months so if anybody is interested in giving it a go head on over and take a look here.
Thanks for taking the time to look and all the wonderful encouraging comments you leave me, I really do appreciate it.
