Two Challenges.....a sketch and using dies and punches.

Hello, on this gorgeous, sunny holiday weekend, I hope it's sunny where you are. I'm back today with a bright, summery card to match my mood.

I'm using this week's sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp and also joining in with The Craft Place Challenge.

Here's my card.

I used some pretty, summery colour papers from Basic Grey, stitching around the edges. I die cut a scalloped circle and plain circle, stamping a sentiment from Inspired by Stamping Trendy Circle Sentiments and a couple of flowers from Spring Blossoms. I die cut a couple of flowers in felt from Tim Holtz Tattered Floral, stitching a button to the centre, I also die cut a couple of felt leaves, to finish it off.

Stamps- IBS Spring BlossomsTrendy Circle Sentiments.
Papers- Basic Grey Gypsy.
Other- Felt, Buttons, SU Border Punch, Crochet Trim

Enjoy the rest of your day, we are off for a walk along the river, making the most of the gorgeous weather.

What a gorgeous card. So bright and cheery. I really need to get over here more often to soak up the inspiration. I'm lacking ideas for my jingle belles cards so pinning this one for starters. Enjoy the weekend. We had ours last weekend and the last one for a long time next Thursday.
