Morning - I have two cards to show and tell today. One for Basic Grey Challenges, which is an Easter themed card and which you will find a little further down in this post.
First though it's my card for this week's challenge at CES Challenges with a Theme of No Girls Allowed! Very fortuitous for me as I needed one of those dreaded male teen cards for my nephew who was 15 this week!
I've used this brilliant image from Mo Manning, Video Boy - just click on the link to take you to Mo's
I've coloured him with my Pro and Flex Markers and layered him up onto the gorgeous new MME Miss Caroline papers - this set is called Dilly Dally - I love the weathered wood pages that come in these sets.. These can be found at Crafty Emma's store here.
There's a layer in there too embossed with a metal plate embossing folder and then sanded back but I proceeded to cover it up with the Happy Birthday sentiment (Inkadinkadoo). A few screwhead brads, some card candy, and distressing to round of the grungy, boy feel and I was done.
However, you may want to pop over there this weekend, as Emma is having a flash sale of 25% off everything (well, almost), until Sunday evening - go on, scoot on over there!!
Gorgeous boy-themed cards by the rest of the CES DT team -pop on over here to get some inspiration!
My next card is for our new challenge at Basic Grey Challenges and we have an Easter theme for you.
I've not used a Lili of the Valley image for ages, and so used this so far un-inked image of this gorgeous little bunny image which works so well for Easter cards!!
My papers are from the Basic Grey 6x6 pad, Euphoria - such pretty papers!! The corner punch is from Whiff of Joy, the letters from stash and the organza rose trim from the Hobby House!
Just ordered some more of the rose trim in loads of different colours from Wild Orchid Crafts too!!
This fortnight's challenge at Basic Grey Challenges is being sponsored by our regular challenge sponsers, Simon Says Stamp, with a $25 dollar spend-up in their online store up for grabs!!
I'm entering my LOTV card into the new challenges over at Lil's Little Fairies that has an Anything Goes challenge and at Sweet Stampin the theme is Spring or Easter.
Have a fab weekend!
