Bold and Bright

Today I wanted to make a card for the sketch challenge on just us girls but, before I got down to it, I decided to check out this week's challenge on runway inspired. Have a look at the inspiration photo......

How cool is this!!  I just love this bold and bright houndstooth pattern and decided I had to combine both challenges to make this card:

I loved the card by one of the DT, Jennifer Rzasa (see her card here). I used her idea of colouring part of the pattern in the colours from the photo. I just stuck with the yellow and blue using my promakers and stamped the some pink card stock using 'wild rose' everyday sentiments. Added a couple of gems in keeping with the colour scheme.I mounted it on some card I embossed with this dotty design as I thought this went well with the overall feel of the card.

I loved making this card, it feels kinda of 70s funky to me!


  1. Definitely retro the way you colored in part of the hounds tooth. Awesome take on the sketch too. Thanks so much for playing with us at Just Us Girls!

  2. Nice one, great design, I like the line of colour you have created.

  3. Love the houndstooth! Thanks for playing along with JUGS!

  4. What a great card - I love houndstooth, too! I hope you'll join me again at 52 Card Pickup this week!!

  5. I'm so glad I could help inspire you to make this awesome card! I love how you colored the sections on the diagonal...I love it! Thanks so much for playing along on the Runway :)

  6. Love that coloring! And I love how you left so much of the bold houndstooth uncovered, letting it make a statement. Thanks for playing with us at Runway!
