I haven't played along with Sweet Sketch Wednesday for ages and I was looking for some inspiration...The Design Team there have the most amazing cards! So if you are looking for a bit of inspiration, head over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday and see their work!
This week they have two sketches to choose from. I chose the above sketch for a a card for a teacher aid at my school Chris. Chris helps me out so much during the term, photocopying, laminating, marking, testing my kids on their sight words and in so many more ways. I wanted to give her this birthday card and a little pressie to say thank you for all her hard work.
This card was a bit different for me...I have bought some new papers and embellishments from a scrapbooking shop nearby. They were having a 40% off everything sale! My dearest friends let me know about it and I bought myself a large Christmas present...I will tell you what it is soon. I am still deciding whether to wrap it up for under the tree, or, open it up and use it straight away!
Papers: Welcome to Asia Collection from "Far and Away", SU Basic Black, Mellow Moss and Elegant Eggplant
Image: This was stamped for me by a friend, I'm not sure what brand it is...maybe Penny Black, but I'm not sure. Maybe somebody can educate me on this. Coloured in with SU Markers.
Embellishments: Black leaf ribbon, aqua flower, silver ribbon and black button all from my stash. SU Dazzling Diamonds glitter.
Hope you like the card...and I hope Chris likes it too.
Thanks for visiting.
