Yet another challenge card - I'm loving these!

This time I followed the gorgeous sketch from Sketch Saturday.
Here it is:


I think I'll use that one again as it's so lovely!

And to fit another challenge in I went for Arty Girlz challenge which is called "Button It!" - speaks for itself really!

So here my try..


I was much happier with the finished card this time than I was with my last card - although I think it looks better IRL - always the way!

I used backing papers from Glitz Design and Rayher and Core'dinations - all bought at a local craft shop.
I ran the punched circle of core'dinations through my cuttlebug and then sanded the embossed bits slightly.

I also added a floradoodle bought from Joanna Sheen's shop and added a button (from stash - probably off a coat or something!) and a little dress charm from MAC.

I finished it off with a few brads from stash - (I don't know where I got them, I just emptied them into my brad box!) and my very-much-used "Happy Birthday" stamp by Anita's.

I thinks that's that all covered. I almost made a card using no stamps at all, but then I added the Happy Birthday!

Here's the inside:


I hope you like it!

What a lovely idea to do a card without an image stamp, just a sentiment. Lovely colours and very cute what you did with the inside of the card. Thank you for joining us at Sketch Saturday this week!!

I do like the way you've done the inside to match the outside. It's a great take on the sketch.
