MAWTT Challenge #8 Heidi's Sketch / Pollycraft Challenge

Well another week has been & gone & we are already half way through the school holidays. Now is the time we are rushing around trying to locate school uniforms & bags etc. Luckily I am down to my last Little One (he's 12) in school as my middle one starts college this year.

This week we have to say goodbye to our DT member Lisa as she will be leaving us next week. We wish her all the best with what she goes onto next. Also this week our fab prize is for you to be Guest Designer for 2 weeks so get cardmaking. Stuck for an idea? well why not visit the DT members for a bit of inspiration xx

Right onto Heidi's sketch. She has chosen the theme "Teen Card" as an option. As I decided I wanted to use Sharing Sherbert I have entered it into the Pollycraft Challenge as well which have the theme "Buttons & Bows". I actually made this card for my sister even though she is no longer a "teen" I thought it was a great card for her.

As I said I used my Sharing Sherbert stamp which I coloured in using my Aqua Promarkers & Whisper pens (listed at the end). The papers are all from Dovecraft's Kate Knight range & these are Amethyst - Floral Prints. The bow is from my stash & I created the gems by taking star flower gems & gkuing buttons onto them. The sentiment is from my stash & layered onto some black paper from my scrap box.

I took the papers through to the inside of the card. I added a piece of white paper to write my message & using a Scrappycat flower stamp & my stazon ink pad I randomly added flowers round. x Clare xx
