Sketch Saturday and Penny Black Saturday Challenges

Here is another Easter card, a card for my sister's friend which I've based around Sketch Saturdays sketch for this week. I really enjoyed doing this sketch as it was quite simple but really effective.

So here is my card. I used a stamp from the Elzybells sheep clear set, coloured in with watercolour pencils and mounted on assorted cardstock. All the paper is from Making Memories. I really like these colours together.

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Elzybells); Watercolour pencils; Paper (Making Memories); Sentiment (Pink Petticoat); Ribbon (won, think it's Making Memories); Flower & brad (Poppicrafts); Assorted cardstock, Gems (Lakeland)

Hi everyone, I hope you're having a lovely weekend. Today's theme across at Penny Black is "Easter". As you know, I'm still desperately trying to get my Easter cards finished so I thought I'd do fairly simple designs for the remainder. As you can see I'm getting the most out of this gorgeous PB flower stamp I bought last weekend!!! I coloured in with watercolour pencils and cut out with rectangle scalloped nesties and mounted on assorted cardstock. The papers are from a Papermania kit. I added a Sizzix swirl cut in half and a flower with a sentiment from Pink Petticoat.

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Penny Black); Watercolour pencils; Paper (Papermania); Assorted cardstock; Flower (Poppicrafts); Sentiment (Pink Petticoat); Nesties; Swirl (Sizzix)
