Corrosive Challenge 16

This week the Corrosive Challenge is a sketch to work with - I've never done one of those before but it actually made it easier so I did another one the next morning. Must admit that I whipped this card up in under half an hour as it was 1am & not surprisingly I was tired - last week I was a wee bit late - I do get confused with the time difference between my country (New Zealand) & Canada so was trying to be early this week. Janet is giving away a a Ketto stamp, and some lovely ribbon so get KReating!

It's dark, gloomy & wet as winter here so I've made a really bright card to cheer me up & hopefully the lucky recipient. The words have been coloured up using Stampin' Write Markers & I've used my Petal Party Simply Scrappin' kits to show that you can also make cards with them (in fact a lot of cards), I do love the die-cut flowers they look awesome in real life.

Stamp set: On Your Birthday
Paper: Pixie Pink, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Petal Party DSP
Other: Stampin' Write markers (Old Olive, Summer Sun, Pixie Pink, Pumpkin Pie), Dimensionals, Petal Party self-adhesive die-cut flowers

How do you make a card so quickly?? Takes me at least 2 hours to decide on colours, papers, stamps etc. before I even start! It looks great too.

Karen that looks fabulous! I'm with Judy - that's pretty fast creating! I would like to play this week, but not sure I have the time... See you soon!
