3 Different Challenges...

I created this card for this weeks CPS sketch no64 challenge! I liked the sketch...nice and simple...as soon as I saw the sketch I thought about "turning" the sketch and making a "handbag"...but in the end I wanted to try this front opening style...



This is how it looks under the first flap...now you open the card normally, and I have simply stamped a birthday greeting! Quite an easy card to make...i'll definitely try it again!


This is another of the stamps I got for my birthday...I've used Lola for this weeks Ismaki sketch challenge! This trim is very special to me...I found it in my gran's box of "bits" stashed away in her old treadle singer sewing machine when she died....I used the last piece on this card...so I'm going to have to send this card to some-one who will appreciate this sentiment!

And last but not least I used this little beauty for this weeks Poetic Artistry week 37 sketch challenge! I really liked this sketch also...very easy to work with!

I seemed to get on really well with this week's sketches...so I've added a few on the one post otherwise I'd be behind the times again!! All cards in this post used up more scraps from the famous box....why not see what you can create with your scraps for my candy challenge? bx
