I made this card following the sketch on this week Stamp Something Challenge. I started with a blank red card with a layer of holly vellum. The stamped images are Penny Black and coloured with marvy le plume and highlighted with sakura gelly roll and glaze pens. They were then layered on to green card and then applied to a strip of red. I finished with a ribbon bow and 4 green gems. I decided to use this card for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge too as its *Red and Green*.
This is the card I made for my mums birthday on Tuesday 18th Nov. Its using one of the embossing boards from the Glitter Girls, along with one of their radiant lights fairy decoupage. I took her to a craft fair this afternoon, where she pick a gorgeous bracelet, that has magnets in, to help with her arthritis.

Here's my card for this weeks Saturday Sketch. I also went for the option of using Autumn colours. The papers are Basic Grey and I used some thin fibers instead of ribbon. I stamped Willow with Cookies using Archival Black and watercoloured with a mix of pencils and Marvy Le Plume. I used the same inkpad for the sentiment and swirl. The flowers are Prima and Flora Doodles with brad centers. I really liked this sketch its a bit different, thanks Coco.
Here's my card for the Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge. This week its a sketch by Jill and you must use Pink, Brown and White colours. I used Kay & Co papers from the Neopolitan range. I stamped and watercoloured the Willow with hot chocolate and used Flora doodles and a stamped sentiment, along with some flower ribbon to embellish and finish off.
