Sketch and Stash and Cute Daisy May Challenges

Hi Everyone! I hope you're all well and enjoying your crafting! We are up to challenge 13 at Sketch and Stash and here is the sketch this fortnight...

As always you are asked to use your new or neglected stash on your card, but we have introduced an optional new challenge, and this fortnight it is to use your new or neglected 'Animal' themed stash on your card (this is only optional, you can of course use the sketch as usual with out animal stash!!)

Here is the card I made...

I used an image from Joanna Sheen's Cardmaker's Year CD on my card, I've never used this image before so it's well neglected as I've had the CD for ages!! I printed the image onto card stock and then touched it up with pencils.

And coincidentally, the theme this week at Cute Daisy May is Animals too!!

For my card I used this cute little cat from sheet 28. I just love him and his little padded heart. I used a selection of K & Co papers on this card, I don't normally do layered cards but think it turned out quite sweet.

Here are all the images from sheet 28 which you get for a bargain £1.99. (I cropped the cat image and enlarged it in my graphics programme - My Craft Studio - to make it bigger).

Well, that's it for me for now, I'll be back tomorrow with my card for My Time to Craft and weather permitting I'm going to attempt to do some gardening today!!

Thanks for looking as always!

Love Becky xx

Gorgeous cards Becky. I love the papers and how you have place the brads to be in the centre of flowers.
Good luck with the garden - its raining here and the back garden looks like a jungle!!
