Not What It Started As

This is a card for my brother in law and I was struggling to come up with something for him. I did get my Wellington images out but  then I saw Di's gorgeous Little Red Car, I thought I've got that image and the backing  paper so I'm sorted but my card is nothing like Di's at all.

I started with this sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches but turned it on it's side

The image is a pre coloured one from Lili Of The Valley but different to Di's. I've gone with backing papers from the new Papermania Midi Festive Spots which I think is a great pack for male cards. As my image is square it looked a little lost on the A5 card so I was going to add some buttons but OH said no so I've added some scraps of one of the other papers to the corners and it's balanced it  a bit. The sentiment is by Personal Impressions cut and layered with a Stampin Up punch and I've added some bakers twine across the top to finish

And then I forgot to post it so missed the deadline for TMS 


  1. Brilliant take on the sketch. Love all those bright colours too. Hugs Mrs a.

  2. Great card Kim. That's my trick, missing the deadlines..:-)
