This week on Cute Card Thursday our challenge is to create with the sketch designed by Lynn. Our sponsor for this challenge is Kraftin Kimmie Stamps. Fingers crossed you can see this card today as I've scheduled it to appear whilst I'm having fun at the Westpoint craft fair with my friends!

Those of you who regularly follow my blog will know that I don't go in for complicated sketches and lots of different patterned papers, so this was a bit of a challenge for me! As a starting point I had a rummage through my paper box and discovered these digi designs from Designer Digitals that come from the same set so the colours match. I cut out my layers then added a white line and pricked faux stitches around the edges, I then chose this cute image by Penny Johnson for Stampavie and coloured it to match before cutting out with a circle Nestie to fit the sketch. My green is a little brighter than the green on the flowery layer so I will have to add to my green Copic collection! It's a simple little card for my craft sale box so I just added the blue ribbon, a sprinkling of white pearls, a text greeting and punched 3 little stars from the dark burgundy card I used to mat my image. It should be thin enough to post at normal rates too - always an advantage!

The Allsorts challenge blog would like to see creations for men or boys this week so here's my card for them.


  1. Beautiful card Annie,I love the image and the colours.
    So gorgeous papers.

  2. The fauc stitiching is especially effective on this card. Actually I like the brighter green - balances the orangey tones of the trousers; anyhow this sent me off to the Stampavie blog as I'm getting reminded of their images. Hope you've had a lovely time at Westpoint & not got too exhausted.
    Much love

  3. Oh this is so adorable Annie.

  4. Oh I so love what you did with the sketch. I am surprised you had an "eek" moment. I tried to do it simple as believe it or not I had you "on my shoulder"!! Lol Lynn ♥
