The Sketchy Challenges #39

Wow...this month is just flying, it still feels like we celebrated christmas just the other day! So, I am already back with a new sketch at The Sketchy Challenges.

The awesome sketch is by the lovely Karen and I created a boys card with not one flower ;) This cutie is from this month's new release from Whiff of Joy 'I Love My Vespa'.

The papers are Authentique 'Bundle' and half way through this card I was starting to think it was too yellow. Even though I love yellow I decided to tone it down a bit by matting the pattern papers on dark brown cardstock, inked the edges with Distress Ink 'Vintage Photo', added a strip of gorgeous spotty grey washi and finished it off with a button and some WOJ button twine.

Did you notice the two new dies I used?

I just received them this week and I think they are awesome. First up is WOJ 'Arrows' and the die includes a variety of 7 arrows.

And the WOJ 'Banner' border die, adds just the perfect touch, especially to a boys card!

Thank you for stopping by and for your lovely comments, please come and join us at The Sketchy Challenges.
