House of Cards August Challenge. . . . . Sketch

Good afternoon, me again. Back with another DT creation but for House of Cards.
The House of Cards August Challenge is to create something using this sketch as your inspiration. . . . . . .

So, hope you fancy giving it a go or that you can pop over to House of Cards to have a peek at what everyone has come up with.

I liked using the plain SB nesties as I often forget how nice they look just simply layered in this way.

White card base A5 size
Navy, turquoise and pale blue PMD card
SB A2 Bracket Borders One
SB Labels Twenty Eight
SB Matting Basics A and B
Papermania flower punch (same as yesterday)
CE sentiment stamp (blog candy from our lovely Jacquie)
Celebrate 2mm turquoise satin cord
Pale blue organza ribbon
Black archival ink
Broken China DI
Dovecraft blue bling

Hope you like today's creation. I have a kinda soft spot for it. Even with the bow, I think you could get away with it for a fella (just, lol!!!)

I'll be back soon, with some tales from Sunday. . . . . . a very eventful day with the craft show all day and in the evening . . . . . . a surprise birthday party for Nesta!!!

Thanks for paddling.
Be good.

  11. Lovely idea I have the brackets - hooray and one of the matting basics I think I' going to have to get the other set too!

  12. I agree...sometimes I get caught up using the fancier dies that I forget how nice the SB nesties look layered up, too! Glad you posted the picture of the flowers close up - cute and fun card!

  13. Just realised I'd missed this card yesterday! You must have so much patience to cut the pattern out so many times. Love the flowers too. Best wishes, Anne O

  14. Hi Ang,
    Here I was wondering how you did the layering. It's ok just having a senior moment.
    I must have a go at doing this myself. Love the card by the way.
