Card Challenges

What with all this horrid snow we have been experiencing and the cancellation of yesterday's team training because of it, I thought I should do something creative. I put the creative part of my brain in gear and decided it was time to take part in another card challenge. In fact, I am hoping that this card meets the requirements of two challenges!

The first is one that I found on the Freshly Made Sketches Blog. It is, Freshly Made Sketches #69 - by Linda S

As the name implies, it is a sketch based challenge and here is the sketch that the cards are to be based on.

The second challenge I found on the SU Only Challenge blog. SU Only Challenge #62 - New Toys!

As the title implies, the challenge is to use "New Toys". I have just received my pre-order goodies from the Spring/Summer Seasonal Catalogue so I thought that this challenge was a good incentive to get them out and have a play.

So here is the card that I came up with and, I hope it fills the criteria for both challenges. Please feel free to leave your thoughts and comments.

The card was made using mainly products that will be available as part of Sale-A-Bration and from the forthcoming Spring/Summer Catalogue. The only "old" stamp set used came from the Lacy & Lovely set that was introduced in the current annual catalogue so it's not exactly old!

Don't forget Sale-A-Bration starts next week. You are going to love all the FREE choices that will be available to you.


  1. This is a very cute way to interpret the layout - half patterned paper and half embossed. Adorable with the pop top embellishments. Thanks for joining SUO Challenges this week.

  2. Pretty! I love the mix of texture and colors. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  3. Oh, it is my two favorite challenges all in one!! Great use of the new things to create this fabulous card! So glad you joined us at both FMS and SUO Challenges!

  4. Very the Soda Pop Tops in the scallop circles along with the sketch you used! Thanks for playing along with the SUO "New Toys" Challenge!
