Double Challenge Entry

I can't believe it's been 4 days since my last post! Where on earth has the time gone?

On reflection I have been super busy, I bought a caravan so have had a towing lesson as I've not towed for years and wanted some practice. Went to pick up the caravan, sorted dog cages and a tow bar for my car, a close friend has had a baby so I drove over and visited her, I've been sorting out everything I will need for my Wreath Class and ordering all the materials, then last night we went and had dinner with hubby's business partner and his wife.

Today I am stopping for breath!

Somewhere in there I managed to make a card for two challenges this week. CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge, it was a colour challenge this week. and the Freshly Made Sketches sketch for this week.

Sometimes it's really hard to think of something for these challenges but I really needed some 'structure' to get my creative juices going, as you can imagine with everything going on my creative mojo took a hike!

I used the Zoo Babies stamp set, Bring on the Cake birthday sentiment set, the Scallop Dotted Ribbon border punch and the Label Bracket punch.

I used Iridescent Ice embossing powder in the word Birthday and Dazzling Diamonds on the strip of ribbon. Want to know how I got that straight line? I used a thin strip of double sided tape and then sprinkled on the Dazzling Diamonds. Neat trick isn't it?

So I have quite a few bits to share over the next few days. Particularly as things have hopefully settled down for a while.
