Papertake weekly and more

For my card today I have followed the sketch over at Papertake weekly, but have turned it upside down. I decided to make a Valentines card for the Hubby, So the card also fits into the challenge over at A spoonful of sugar which is Valentines. And over at the High Hopes challenge the theme is Glitter or Sparkle. There is some on there - honest. I have put stickles on the stamped hearts. The papers are Pink Petticoat, the image is High Hopes and the sentiment is Whimsy stamps. I cut the hearts out myself, but didn't do it too well. But it's OK, I managed to hide the worst bits by putting them under the larger one. I kept it pretty simple as I didn't think Hubby would really want flowers and bows. (Not this time anyway)

ABC Xmas - B

I finally finished my card for the challenge over at ABC Xmas. They are at B - for Black and White, and have offered this freebie Dustin Pike image. How cool is that. So I decided to use white with black matt. I was planning on using B&W papers right enough, but they are buried somewhere. But I kinda like it. I have kinda used an old sketch from Friday Sketches which I am liking. I added a bit of ribbon and some MS punched snowflakes with some black Craftwork cards card candy. I also embossed the two white bits behind the image with snowflakes, and the sentiment is Cats Life Press.

The Sugar Bowl #51

Well I thought I would try and get crafting again. So what better way than to enter The Sugar Bowl challenge. I kept it pretty simple really, and even inked up one of my new stamps. A lovely Leanne Ellis stamp. I used Pink Petticoat papers and Craftwork cards sentiment and card candy. The flowers are Prima I think, found them while I was having a nosey in some boxes. I cut the circles out with nesties and embossed the white bit.
