ISSC02 - Happy Birthday!

The team over at iSpy have another amazing sketch to play with this week. The sketch was inspired from a card made by Beate Johns, an amazingly creative lady.  Check out her blog!


This was the sketch over at iSpy




And here is my take on the sketch:






















I decided to make a square card and incorporated MFT die-namics, Green Tara flowers, a Martha Stewart punched butterfly and my own little bit of shabby chicness (distressing,tearing and inking) to the card.  Where I tore the background paper I inserted a little piece of lace to add to the look.  It was loads of fun creating a card with a pennant on it.  Something I have not done before!  Thanks to the designers at iSpy and Beate for the inspiration.  I am so looking forward to next weeks challenge too.

Thank you for stopping by - please leave a comment as I'd love to hear from you.

  2. Leanne, What a beautiful card as are all the rest of your card. I've been looking over your gorgeous works of art and you have a lot of talent. I found this to be a difficult sketch for me, but you made it look so pleasing to the eye. Thanks for some nice inspiration.
