Spoon Full of Sugar- Sketch

Ok so here I am again today with another challenge, but first let me ask you a question, I want to know if this happens to you or am I just going mad! ......I went out to a big designer outlet yesterday with my husband and found myself looking at patterns on everything - and I mean EVERYTHING and thinking 'hmm that would be gorgeous if it was paper' (!!!!!) I ask you? am I spending too long in the craft room?

Anyway, back to the challenge. Here's the fab sketch given to us at A Spoon Full Of Sugar (isn't that a fab blog name!)

And here's what I came up with...
The papers are Basic Grey Offbeat. As you can see, even though I now have my Copics, I still can't help doing a bit of paper piecing. I think it brings the whole card together don't you?

I'm really loving doing this peeled back corner effect right now.

The image is Holly at Work from the Holly and Madison download collection.

I'm losing sleep again at night you know, shall I tell you why, it's because I go to bed, lay down and the minute my eyes are closed my brain starts planning the next Holly and Madison collection! So, watch this space!

I love that peeled corner effect too, if you look at the DT pictures on the main site they are all like that :-)

Love this card, it's just fab. That template is fab, couldn't see it in the Silhouette shop though (I want it! LOL).

What a fabulous card!! Love it, love it!! Folded corner is a great touch. Oh yes about the looking at everything and thinking "paper" yep...I do it too. More H & M - cool, but they deffo need boyfriends too!

Great card...I love the folded back corner gives an extra dimension.

I can relate to you seeing patterns everywhere! because when I go food shopping I look for tins & boxes that can be altered!!!

I've been having great fun this week getting to grips with my first downloads so glad you encouraged me to take the plunge Louly. Thank you. xx

No it isnt just you Louly. I do it all the time. I go into shops, supermarkets, anywhere really and do the same. It's colours that get me more than patterns cos I just LOVE colour. Anyway, your card is just gorgeous - love the paper piecing and folded corner xxx

How have I lived for so long without these downloads? I love them cos I am so crap at stamping - wonderful card!

Ruby said...

Oooh, love your card. I love the way you have turned down the corners, I am so gonna have to try out that technique! Yes, I too am like you, seeing patterns and colour combos everywhere I look. I'm thinking about different sketches all day too. I'm sure it's got worse since I've started my blog!!
