Frank’s birthday

Its Mojo Monday time and I really needed a sketch for Franks birthday card, and I wanted post a crd for Penny Black Saturday– touchy feelie- the raised embossing, the ribbed  ribbon, &  the layers,  and Top tip Tuesday– straight edges, although I cut frames with a spellbinder die the squares have all straight edghes!   3 challenges for early Monday morning, sometimes it good to get up early.

Mondays can be fun.

Marks finest papers Speedy the cat challenge is Distress, which seems to mean ‘old’ antique looking and there are distress inks and techniques so I hope  this fits.  The distressed image is from Marks finest papers ‘Thankful for you’ set , I used Tim Holtz distress ink. then sponged the teal and goldenrod inks around the background so i could enter the Playdate Cafe color challenge (see below). The sentiment is from hero arts.

Red white & blue butterfly card

The theme of Less is More  challenge is COLOURS of YOUR  NATION’S FLAG.  My flag is Red white and blue … so I stamped a blue flower & sentiment, added a red butterfly and then tied a white  ribbon ‘around the stems’. The stamps are  Stampin’ up the layered butterfly is Martha Stewart punch. I couldnt leave this alone so i cut it down and added a red border. i think it adds a lot but am worried that that makes this more is more.
