Sunglasses at the ready

Sunglasses at the ready and not just because its going to be a sunny weekend but my card is a bit bright! I've used the patterned paper from First Edition Hideaway and coloured the Penny Black girls accordingly.
I'm also on the look out for new sketch blogs since my favourite shut down so I've used Sweet Sketch Wednesday its a really fabulous sketch so will make sure I check them out each week.
I made the swirly border using EK success punch after watch a Bramwell video on U tube, I didn't watch the whole thing since I knew how do it, used to do it with the Fiskars border punches years ago.
Had a lovely surprise yesterday my DD rang me on my mobile to tell the Postman had left a parcel in a not so particular safe space, oh goodie its my parcel from Simon Says Stamps.

Debby -
I love the way you pop up parts of the image (the apron and top of the hat). It gives your card a real 3-D look that is so impressive. You may think the colors are bright, but the background papers pull them all together. Nicely done!

Nilla said...

When I see your cards, I am wondering - what am I doing? You are a true talent and a fantastic art person! Love all your work! Hugs Nilla

This is a fantastic card. Makes you feel really nice and warm. Not too bright at all, I prefer bright cards to all those dark distressed cards. I have got this paper pad and I love it, needless to say not used it yet.
