Sweet sketch Wednesday 2 buttons and bows

I didn't have time to play at Sweet Sketch Wednesday last week, not sure what happened but even Martin got a birthday card out of the made basket even though I had bought a new stamp to make his card with.

Anyway here is my card for this weeks challenge

The twist is buttons and bows so my buttons are from a sizzlits buttons die which I have cut out in patterned papers and then glazed with glossy accents and the bow is from  the paper bows pad which matches the Kitsch papers from Craftwork Cards.
Here's a close up

So the main image is from Lili of the Valley, papers and base card are from Craftwork cards, the swirl die is Memory box and the blue card is another piece used up from the A4 box.

Sweet sketch Wednesday 2 challenge

Here I am last minute again, I really don't know where the weeks are going at the moment, just hope when the holidays come around they don't fly by at the same rate.

So this is the sketch

and this is my card

I have used papers from The Paradise collection from Craftwork Cards, I chose to cut down the birdcage paper to supply my focal image and then cut round the fuchsias on the creamy coloured paper to overlap it.
Base card is also Craftwork Cards and ric rac is from the jar.
Hope you like it

Using up the older stuff

Here is my card for this weeks Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 Challenge

and here is the sketch we had to follow

I made a 148mm square card blank from a piece of blue card then matted white card onto it for a border. The stripy paper, embossed white card and sentiment came from Craftwork Cards a few years ago and I have had the ribbon bow for a while too. 
The image is Sarah Kay decoupage mounted onto a doily.

All in all a card made from items I have had for a couple of years at least. 

Thank you for visiting and for any comments you are kind enough to take the time to leave

Purple twist at SSW2

It's been a lovely weekend here  in Yorkshire and Martins rugby team won as well so that was a bonus.

It's last week of the month time over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 so as well as this great sketch

there is a twist which is purple.

So here is my card

The main image is a Woodware stamp called Delicate Daisies which I have coloured with copics and then paper pieced the main blooms but not stuck all the petals down.

The papers are a mix of  Crate Paper and Basic Grey which I have overstamped  with Judikins Mince Flourish. The ribbon slide came from Paper Cellar a while ago and the ribbon is from the purple jar which has since had a tidy. Pearls are from Hobby House and I have embellished the image with Perfect Pearls.

Hope you like it and thank you so much for visiting
