Rochelle Spears and Unstampabelles

This is the Rochelle Spears jumpstart challenge sketch.

We are asked to use chevron paper as well. There are 2 lots on here, the green and white piece vertically going down, and a finer pale green one on the right.

I've used up my Counterfeit kit on this layout.(My last for the month).
I wanted it to be special as it was from a wedding I intended and these are special friends.

Also at Unstampabelles the want flowers and bling.
I've fussy cut around the flowers and butterflies and mounted some on pop dots to make them stand out.

The bella bling flourish runs across the bottom of the photos.
 Did you notice my tag had been embossed with dots to match the background paper?

The heart under the left hand photo is from my November St Tropez kit and says simply lovely.
The cream tag says forever in love with you and is also mounted on pop dots.
There are 2 strips of washi tape running down the right hand side.


At cardz4guyz they want metal.
I've chosen the closest thing I had to metal which is a silver glitter frame.
I've made a father's day card for Dad using geometric papers plus gold striped washi ape and the silver frame.

Feeling sketchy

At Feeling sketchy last challenge I was a TOP PICK

My card was one of 3 runners up.

Now on to the new challenge.

Looks interesting!

I went textural with this and everything on here is from my June Counterfeit Kit. 
The background is Fabric paper The strip down the middle has white velour and the lace.
The sentiment is embossed and the enamel dots finish it off.
Hope you like it!

AS you like it challenge

As you like it challenge has a favourite shape card and explain why.

I've made a teapot card
The fold is at the top. I enjoyed making this as it involved fussy cutting and decorating the pot as well. It is perfect for a shower tea gift or as a thank you to a hostess.

The paper girls challenge

The theme at Paper girls challenge is bicycles.
I've been inspired by Heather and made 3 tags using scraps.
Next month at Counterfeit kit challenges there is a vintage vibe so 2 of them will add to the kit.
(forget you read that immediately!)

Here's my tags.

Scrap our stash

The second challenge is a blend a sketch at Scrap our stash.
I've mainly used the second sketch but used the title block idea top centre and a strip right across the layout as in sketch #1.
My photos are of St Paul's Cathedral in London. The grand old lady of buildings that has survived fires and bombings to rise above all others.
I had some star patterned paper plus a sports themed paper from Bella which featured the #1  title card, as well as the other All star/think big sub title and the star strip.
I used star background paper, star strip and gold stars in my clusters (among the crowns and the flair.)
