Sketch and Stash and Pollycraft Challenges...

Hi Everyone!!

I can't quite believe that we are up to Sketch 30 at Sketch and Stash!! And this beautiful sketch has been designed by our very own Lols...

And here is the card I have made (I loved working with your sketch Lols and I will be using it again and again I'm sure!!)

My new stash is from the Bella Ballerina kit from The Creative Cottage. I can't stop creating with this stunning kit, they make such fun cards!! The papers are also from the same kit too.

And the challenge over at Pollycraft this fortnight is Distressing and here is my card...

The Pollycraft girls really made me laugh as the distressing challenge really did prove distressing for them (they hated roughing up their beautiful papers!!) Well me, I love a bit of distressing as this was my original style of card making before 'Cute' took over so my card is very distressed!!
I have used Distress Inks and I did a bit of heat embossing in a random fashion around the edge to try to give it a worn look. I have used my Pollycraft Woodland Elves stamps on my card, this range was what really drew me to Pollycraft way before I was on the Design Team and I've been Pollycraft obsessed ever since!!

Anyway, thanks so much for looking once again and I'll catch up with everyone very soon!!

Just a reminder about the new Creative Cottage Challenge Blog and candy to celebrate... join in the fun here!!

Love Becky xx
