Happy Birthday CCT + 3 more challenges


CCT is one year old this week, so they're having a big celebration! I've been away for a few days over the weekend so I almost missed it - hence the quick post in the morning before leaving for work!

The theme this week is a fab sketch, which I really enjoyed working with. Actually I scribbled it down on a piece of paper and looking at it now I don't think I've got it quite right, but I did my best so I hope it qualifies!!


The card is bit different for me - I have used my brand new Penny Black stamp "blush", which I have coloured using Marvey brushstroke pens to create a watercolour effect. I also lightly sponged the edges of the tag with pink ink and edged with silver, though the photo doesn't show it very well. The sentiment is also a new stamp by Great Impressions (I bought it while I was away from a fab little shop called Horseshoe Crafts); papers are by Craft Creations; Coredinations cardstock is embossed with Cuttelbug Swiss Dots and sanded lightly; flowers by Prima; ribbon, gems, brad and spacer from my stash.
I hope the generally floral theme of this card also makes it a good candidate for this week's ABC Challenge which is flowers - actually most of my cards would qualify for this is some way shape or form cos I love flowers, but it has been quite a while since I have used a flower for the main image, and even longer since I did a brushstroke flower.
I would also like to enter this card for the Artygirlz challenge - stamping, and the this week's MTTC challenge #53 - nature.
Gotta dash to get ready for work - hope everyone is having a good week.
