I don't normally use designer papers as I prefer to make my own, but someone gave me this from "Smart Kraft" and it's an opportunity to use it. Not really my style, but someone might like it and the card can be used for something.

A bit shy of entering this in Ooh-la-la-Creations after seeing the wonderful entries there, but practice makes perfect.
Sketch Saturday
I think I can maybe get 2 challenges out of this one.
Sketch Saturday with the sketch and My Time to Craft with Bright and Bold.

The card is from Elco Creative Colours and the peel offs from Crystal Stickers.

Thought I'd do this one again as I liked the sketch which is one of Nikki's at A Spoon Full of Sugar .

This challenge is by A Spoonfull of Sugar
The card is Elco Creative colours. The dark lilac paper is from Lyns . The paler lilac card is from "Artylicious" and the plaid is my own. Ribbon is by "Rayher".
Image is embossed with "Top boss Clear Embossing Powder".

Being new to stamping, I thought I would emboss the hello, but I must've overheated it..... A bit of a catastrophe, but never mind, will enter it anyway for the Cat or Dog challenge at Cute Card Thursday . Looks like being one of those days for card making.
