Theme Thursday and Sketch Saturday Challenges

Hi! Hope you've all been enjoying the good weather over the weekend so far. It was a lovely sunny day in Essex yesterday which makes a nice change! My first card today is for Theme Thursday and the challenge is "glamorous girls". I had this gorgeous Audrey stamp which I got free when I ordered some stuff from The Stampsmith! She definately is glamorous!!

So I stamped her on some paper by DCWV - I think it's from the Love stack- and cut and mounted her up on using nesties. I really like the off-set circles, I think they look really cool. I added some gorgeous pink hot fix crystals to the pink card square. The rest of the papers including the stripey bit) are also DCWV but from the All Glittered Up stack. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and the chipboard flowers were free in a competition I won. Hope you like glamorous Audrey!

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Stampsmith & Hero Arts); Paper (DCWV); Assorted cardstock; Nesties; Hot fix crystals; Chipboard (free)

The second challenge for today is Sketch Saturday. I love Sketch Saturday!

So here is my take on the sketch. I love this cat in bra stamp, it's so fun to colour in! Papers are all by Making Memories. Sentiment is Craftwork Cards.

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Penny Black); Watercolour pencils; Papers (Making Memories); Nesties; Daisy flower punch (Woodware); Sentiment (Craftwork Cards); Gem (Lakeland)
