Spoon full of sugar challenge card

Monday again! Where did the weekend go!!

I've been having a turn out and trying to get things listed for sale on ebay. However, I had a huge faff with the camera and ended up deleting all the photos I'd taken. By the time I'd redone them all it was time to pick up my daughter from nursery so I only got one item listed!!! Not my day!!

Now it's nearly time to pick up my eldest from school (where did the day go!!!) but I just wanted to share this card with you. The design was for Loretta's Sketch Challenge over on the DoCrafts website. It's also going to be my entry for this weeks Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge - the challenge was to use gems on the card - they're a bit small but they are there, honest!!!

My Mum asked me to make a card for a friend's 60th Birthday and this is what I came up with. I had already coloured the Forever Friends image and wanted to use it but then I got cardmakers block!! I think I had nearly every paper pack I own (of which there are lots, obviously!!!) trying to pick a colour scheme I liked. In the end I chose this using some Basic Grey Eva papers and I think it works. I hope my Mum (and her friend) like it!!

Products used:

Printed papers - Basic Grey Eva
Stamp - Forever Friends from DoCrafts, coloured with brushmarkers
Pink card - Core-dinations
Pink ribbed ribbon - Dovecraft
Pink fluffy ribbon - from a pack I got ages ago in The Works
Paper flowers - Papermania, Mad About Cards and local craft shop
Rub-on numbers, Brads and Peel Off's (coloured with black permanent pen) - Papermania
Adhesive gems - Papermania - there are 4 on there, see if you can spot them all!!!

Thanks for looking!!
