Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge # 13

This weeks challenge over at SCSC is a sketch by Wendy. I loved the simpleness of this sketch, but I went for A5 sized and I think I'd have been better going smaller, as I kept getting the feeling it needed something more as there was to many spaces left, and I didn't want to diverse away from the sketch itself. I was going to scrap the card, but Steve couldn't see what was wrong with it, so this time I'm going to trust his judgement and went ahead and entered it.




I used my new stamp from Pink Gem Designs 'Party Mimi' I've coloured her with copics and sakura stardust for a little sparkle. The patterned paper is s.e.i. and the plain pink is from my scraps stash. The sentiment is stamped then added some knotted pink ribbon and a little dangly heart both from my craft stash. Then I got to the large spaces that were left over, so I used three pink flower buttons along the top and pink heart and circle gems on the corners of the image and on the left hand bottom corner.
Below is the sketch:




I'm still not too sure about this one, I really hate it when I feel like this about a card. I went for pink colouring as I'm making some cards for Breast Cancer Awareness for a friend of a crafting friend who is hopong to raise some money for this good cause after losing her mother last year to breast cancer. Maybe it will grow on me, if not it'll go in my little rejects draw.

Have a lovely weekend all, whatever your plans xxx
