Caardvarks challenge

Happy New Year to everyone, hope its a great one for you all . I plan to get more time to craft this year, and here is the first challenge of the year from Caardvarks . The challenge is to use this sketch.

I don't really like using sketches but had to have a go, I suppose the more I practice the better I will get at these sorts of challenges!


Decided to make a baby girl card. This is quite a simple design just using patterned papers, stitched the beads on by hand. The sentiment is just chipboard but I pop dotted it to a small nesties label.
I am getting some crafting in before I go back to school next week, a bit of relaxing time before the new term starts.

Keep at the challenges, Sally; I think they expand us by making us do things we might not otherwise try. I think you did a great job with this one - love the beading! AND I really like your new header! Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Sally! What a gorgeous card, for someone who says she doesn't like sketches you've done a wonderful job with this one!!!!
This sketch is very like an idea that I have had in my head for a few weeks now, so I'll be playing along too once I get the chance to ink up those stamps! Jo x

Love your paper choices! Also love how you let the ribbon stop before getting to the bottom of the card! Very pretty!
