Post birthday making....


OMG it has been an action packed birthday...more about that tomorrow....

For the first post of October I thought I'd celebrate with a challenge entry..I saw Retro Sketches this week and thought that it would make my parents an interesting Anniversary card.

Here's the sketch -

Retro Sketches #83
I actually found the sketch quite difficult to reproduce, but after a few moments of contemplation I came up with the card you see in today's main photo.

It's a little strange, as my border punch doesn't quite butt up to the middle. I added the hearts, as it felt a bit bare :) The chevron paper makes it all feel a bit modern. I like the end result and I hope my parents will too.

I used American Crafts patterned paper, Kaisercraft textured paper, Woodware scalloped punch, Hero Art's sentiment stamp and a random piece of bling from my stash.
