DCM sketch dare...

Still catching up with my birthday list, I made a card using the recent DCM challenge of a really useful sketch. Used up some of the bits left over from the PB album commission, one of my fave colour combos... pink and browns, just yum!

Discovered a useful link on the Paper Pleasing Ideas blog, its a colour scheme generator for want of a better description. Check it out here and see what you think!

Ingredients: Anna Griffin paper, plain cardstocks, ribbon, ric rac, fabric flower from Wilko's and Fiskars scallop scissors (when I saw how Jo used them on her card, I just had to try it out too!).


Went to a lovely wedding party this evening. A lady I used to work with got married today. It was such a lovely setting and really children friendly, they had two bouncy castles and some games available for children and the young at heart. The sunshine really helped and their was a fab chocolate fountain for us to get messy with!


I just couldn't resist taking a pic of her bouquet, just beautiful!


Nearly finished the Paper bag album... so hold on for those pics, have made some other cards too, but they're based on a Di Hickman sketch to be released soon... so again, watch this space!
