West Midlands, United Kingdom
I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Double Challenge Card

This card is made for two challenges: -
  1. Truly Scrumptious Challenge #5 - sketch
  2. Whiff of Joy #26 - Black & White plus one other colour
The papers were an experiment where I printed them from PC using Grayscale on my printer. Original are all bright greens and pinks and love the way this has worked. My choice of "other colour" was obvious really - purple always! LOL Edges of image and sentiment distressed using ink and cut 'n' dry.

Image & Sentiment: Whiff of Joy coloured with promarkers from Secret Crafter
Papers: Kay Miller Designs "All Organic"
Punched flowers. Scallop & circle cut on cuttlebug using nesties
Card and gems from my stash
