Another week has whizzed by and it's time for another challenge over on Isabella's Sketchbook. The challenge this week is to make a birthday card, so nice and simple ! The Isabella image I've used is called Chocolate and Coffee. I'm also putting this card in for the Friday Sketchers challenge and for the Charisma Cardz challenge to use food and drink on your card. I've gone for a change with this image and painted it with Distress Inks, it's not as good as I'd hoped, but as they say practice makes perfect ! I've cut around it using Deckle Edged scissors. I've used the textile embossing folder and then blended Spun Sugar and Corduroy Distress Inks around the edge. The paper is Basic Grey and the background is white cardstock that I've blended Spun Sugar over and then stamped the swirl from the Baroque Motifs set from Stampin' Up in Worn Lipstick.
I've added some stitching around the edge for some detail.
Hope you can join us this week and I look forward to visiting you !
