Time for a challenge

I've not taken part in a challenge for a couple of weeks so thought it was time to do so.

It's another one from the CAS Colours & Sketches blog. This time a sketch.




This is the card that I came up with.




As I added this photo, I realised that my curves are going the other way. Oh well,  hopefully it's still acceptable.

All of the stamps come from the Number of Years stamp set.

I thought the card looked a little simple and masculine (nothing wrong with that), but decided that I should make it a little more feminine. This is what I came up with.


It's amazing how the addition of two little flowers can completely change the look of a card.

I then took it one stage further by changing the numbers and adding a bit more bling.


The numbers were cut out of Silver Glimmer Paper using the Large Numbers Framelit Dies.

I love how you can take a simple idea and by making small changes and additions can completely change the look.

Please feel free to leave comments and let me know what you think.
