A Gem of a Challenge - Vicky's sketch

Time for a new challenge over at A Gem of a Challenge, and it's a fab sketch from the lovely Vicky...


I need male cards for some family birthdays that we've got coming up, so I had to stop myself reaching for all the pretty stuff!  I've used one of the fab 'Keep Calm' digis from Pink Gem Designs - this one is available here, and you can see the whole Best of British range here.  You get a coloured version, one with black text and then a white text version, so you can layer it over a digi paper, which is what I've done here.

The papers are from the Honey Bee set from Raspberry Rd, printed onto linen card, with black and red card from Papermill Direct.  The sentiment is Craftwork Cards and the black pearls are from my stash.

We've had a fun but very busy week, so today I'm staying at home... I might not even bother getting dressed lol.  Lots of crafty time and catching up with your blogs!  Hope you all have a lovely day, whatever you've got planned :o)
