A little reminder ...

Don't forget there is a new challenge over at Willow Sketchie at the moment, this is a card I have made following the sketch:


It's quite a simple sketch but you can embellish it as much as you like and really make it your own.  Of course you can rotate it or re-size the elements - as long as we can still see the original sketch that's fine.


You don't even have to use the sketch if you don't want to, you can just follow the theme for this week and that is

DIE CUTS AND/OR PUNCHES

as long as there is a die cut or punched element on your card it will meet the requirements of the challenge.

Everything used to make this card came from the Popcorn Platinum Men's collection with the exception of the sentiment which is a Wild Rose Studio stamp.  The card stock is Core'dinations and the brads are from my stash.  The only other things I have used are some Spellbinders dies.

I made this card for my youngest son to give a friend who plays for the same 'Inclusive' Football team as him - I always find it quite difficult to make cards for children/adults with special needs, so I let my son choose the image and papers.

I have decorated the inside of the card to complement the front:


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Craft Your Days Away Challenge 44 - Just for Children
Sentimental Sundays Challenge 100 - Cards for Kids
