I have made this card especially to dedicate to a lovely lady called Dee, alias Sprytebyrd! See her wonderful blog here. The other week, on the Stamptacular Sunday Create-a-Card blog hop, I was lucky enough to win her blog candy. This is my way of saying a big THANK YOU to her! I won a fab set of Inkadinkadoo love stamps, which I will be definitely be using on my next C4E card. You will have to come back on Sunday to see it!
Of course, I could not make a card without entering into a challenge as well. In this case two. The sketch is Caryn's lovely design from this weeks Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge. Also over at Just Magnolia, they are looking for cards with distressing on them. I always do a little distressing around every image, as it adds extra definition to the frame.This time however, I got the sandpaper out & softened the edges of all the papers. However, on this photo you can barely see it, so you will just have to take my word for it. Perhaps I might invest in one of those Tim Holtz paper distresser tools. Is it worth it? I know Sarah @ Lil-Paper-Pixie has one & I love the effects she produces. I do like the distessed effect, but I hardly ever do it!
Anyway, my main concern is that Dee likes the card. I certainly hope so. Hope you all had a great weekend, already counting down to the next one, LOL!!
