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.)

4 crafty chicks and Cardz4guyz

At 4 crafty chicks they want birds and blooms.
This worked out well for me as I had this die cut featuring 2 birds on a pine branch.
I used a border punch to back it and added 2 stars in the corners. My background s dark to provide contrast. Some ladies like more subdued colours so I'm sure this will be used.

Next at Cardz 4 guyz they want fathers day cards. 
I found a patterned paper scrap featuring whales, clouds and rainbows and thought it was appropriate for a small child to give to their daddy.
I've used 2 of those end strips from patterned paper on here.

Freaky fast Friday.

I arranged my papers down the right hand side and slightly overlapping.
I used a Webster's paper as my background.

The banner across the bottom plus the washi tape strip and the Heidi Swapp overlay "Remember" are all extras. Similarly is the journaling block.

The story behind this was a trivia night about Music which was on our European River cruise 2 years ago. People were asked to get up and jive to get extra points. One of the other ladies and I became so tangled up that we had a fit of the giggles, hence the photo.
