LIM - Sketch

I have managed to find time to make card lol !!!
So I'm quite a happy bunny today! And guess what else has happened.....

I passed all 3 QTS tests for Uni!!! Even the numeracy ha ha !!
I get seriously nervous when 'mental arithmatic' is mentioned so I was quite worried walking in and had already prepared myself to fail but turns out I'm not that bad!!!
Whoop whoop! That's no more exams just the dreaded dissertation and a few 1000 word assignments to hand in!

Anyhooooooo (lol)

Ive been trying to play along with the challenges over at LIM for the past couple of weeks now and even got so far as making half a card for a few lol, so I forced myself to sit down yesterday amongst the massive pile of Uni books and make a card with the fab sketch! Although I have only just realised that its the wrong blumin shape!! Oh well better luck next time Rach!!

I made the paper by stamping a flower from a Papermania flower set. The flower comes in two different sizes which I think is perfect for making my own paper.  

(Why it looks bent out of shape is beyond me!)
I stamped the large flower twice and cut it out to layer it to give a bit of dimension. I used the same ink pad to create the mat that is behind it. I also used the same ink pad to stamp out the greeting too.
What I have used:
  • 5x5 white card blank
  • Papermania flower stamps
  • Papermania sentiment
  • Versacolour Magenta ink cube
  • Silver gems
Well back to the grind I suppose. It better all be blumin worth it I tell ya!! Lol.

Hope to be back soon
And I hope you're all well.
