Two in a day!!

Hello Again,

I made this card this afternoon but had planned to post it on Sunday until I realised that the challenge at Make My Monday closes tomorrow. As I have my DT card for Inkspirational scheduled for tomorrow I thought I would post this now so I didn't miss the deadline. 2 posts in one day-I think this has only happened once before in my time as a blogger!

This card came together as a result of 3 challenges. The sketch is from Make My Monday. This week they were asking for a CAS card using their sketch. CAS-ual Friday have a 'make your mark' challenge to include some colouring on your card. And finally The Play Date Cafe have a 'black, white and splash of emerald green' challenge.
With this fab combination of challenges I came up with this:

The stamp is from PTI, I coloured the petals and the punched butterfly with an emerald green marker (make unknown!). I added some black gems, rounded some corners and finally scored the card stock. I decided, after a lot of yes/no, yes/no,  not to add a sentiment as I thought there was enough on the card. I would love to know if you think a sentiment would have been better?

It is dark here now so the photo has a few shadows so I apologise but I didn't want to miss that deadline!

Off to enjoy Friday night with hubby and hopefully a trip into town tomorrow to see a movie. Don't forget to come back tomorrow to see my post for our fab sketch challenge at Inkspirational.

  6. I love this Sandie - those rounded corners make a gorgeous feature revealing the green beneath. I think the card is lovely as it is but if you wanted a sentiment, maybe one could go on its side on the left of the top two squares. Vicky x
