Sunday makes...

Here's a couple of cards i've made.
This first card is part of a commission order...

I used this truly beautiful and delicate image by DigiStamp Boutique; Sketchy Cherry Blossom. It's actually on offer for this month and is only 95p!
I made a simple frame in my paint program and added the image to it, then coloured it with my promarkers.
I printed out the flowers twice so that I cut 3D them.
The sentiment is also computer generated, and layered on top of the frame using a pretty cArt Us border beneath it, and adding some little diamonds (crystals) to embellish it and finish it off.

I'd like to enter this card into:
DSB blog's customer competition
I love promarkers - one for the girls 
Charisma Cardz - anything goes
Crafting When We Can - Birthstones (diamonds for April)


This card has been made for my daughter's boyfriend.
I used one of my favourite images, one I often go to for male cards. It's a Pollycraft image; Beer Monster...

Rich is a wolves fan (wolverhampton wanderers) and this is my second card to be made recently for wolves fans. I'm more used to making blue and white cards for Baggies fans, BOING! BOING!! :D
Anyway, I digress, back to the card, so as a wolves related card, I had to go with the orange and black theme. The stripy paper is from a Dovecraft paper pack, Abstract Prints.
'Happy Birthday' is computer generated.
'cheers to you' is from a stampin up stamp set of the same name. I drew the speech bubble myself.
'rich' was made with die cut letters (die-namics by the letter), as you can see I still haven't got around to getting the uppercase die-namics dies yet, hence the lowercase 'r'.

I'd like to enter this card at:
Totally Gorjuss - for the men
Sweet Stampin - stars and stripes
Stamptacular - TWO's company (2 punched stars. Also 2 stamps, one digi, one rubber)
ABC challenge - H for Happy Birthday

  10. A very unique male card. I had to look up the wolves. Not familiar with this team in the USA. Now I get the black and orange. Very fitting and they happen to be my High School colors, too. Awesome design.
