The Male Room & TIOT

The Male Room want us to be inspired by a movie.
Try it on Tuesday wants a male card.

I was inspired by an old movie named To kill a king.(2003)

To Kill a King.jpg
It is about King Charles 1 and Oliver Cromwell.
This statue in Trafalgar square features King Charles 1 and the other picture is an old building with the Union Jack flag.

The person I have in mind for this card loves history, so it will go down well with him.

Case this sketch & Fusion

My card for Case this sketch couldn't be any more simple if I tried.
Here's the sketch.

I wanted a wedding card that was pure white and simple.

The mauve shadows are reflections from the scanner. My silver cake embellishment is magic
mounted on the card.


Next is my entry for Fusion

I used the colours and the sketch to create a card with bright colours.
One of the 2 flowers I had to hand draw and colour with my zig markers.
Hope you like it!

Cute card Thursday & Seize the Birthday

The theme at Cute card Thursday is circles.

And at Seize the Birthday it is Anything goes.

I ferreted out 2 spotted papers to create this card for my neighbour who loves red.

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.
