Case this Sketch Challenge 69

Hello all,

A busy blogging night for me tonight! Having two young children leaves very little time for crafting, let alone blogging, but I am enjoying some free time now they are in bed!!

Tonight, I have a card to share with you for the Case this Sketch Challenge. My lovely husband surprised me last week with a goodie bag of card making supplies that he had bought for me as a wee treat ;-) This included two packs of patterned papers by Papermania which I just HAD to test out.

One place that I find really inspires me, is the stamping' up catalogue. I love looking through and just seeing the 'layouts' of cards. I guess because I am such a relative newbie in the world of card making, I need all the inspiration I can get!!! Having had another look at the catalogue I feel my card is very much inspired by such 'layouts'…..and I love it actually :-)

Here is the inspiration sketch given by Case this Sketch..

And here is my interpretation…..

Cardstock - White and Navy from Papermill Direct, Capsule Collection Paper (Papermania)
Stamps - Wrinkles (Hobbycraft)
Dies - Xcut square Parenthesis dies
Tools - WRMK Art Deco Cutter
Embellishments - pearls (Anita's), String & Button from stash, Ribbons by Papermania Capsule Collection.
Ink - Memento Paris Dusk 

I hope you like it! Any comments as always very much appreciated :-)
