So...this post is day late, but not for the want of trying! Yesterday was my friend's, Heather, 30th birthday! Woohoo! Well, I tried to post this card yesterday but the internet was just not playing ball and despite my best efforts it just wouldn't let me connect - doh! Unfortunately that means that this post is a day late for Heather's birthday (sorry girl!) but I don't think she'll be too worried :) We went out last night and had a lovely evening, although I'm not sure she'd agree with that so much today...bless her! ;)
Here is the card I made...
I went with the rainbow colour scheme...I just can't help myself! ;) I asked Heather's boyfriend what her favourite colour was, assuming that he would know...WRONG! I know she likes purples and reds but I wasn't sure just HOW much she liked them so I thought if I went with every colour then I couldn't go wrong! ;) Luckily she really liked her card :)
Here is this week's CAS(E) This Sketch sketch on which my card was based...
Aren't all the sketches that come out of this challenge actually awesome!!? ;) I don't think there's been one yet that I haven't loved, even if I haven't always had the mojo to use them to their potential.
I am also going to enter this card into the challenge over at CASology...if they'll allow it! ;) The Cue Card for this week is 'Arrow'. I normally make my sentiment banners with an inverted arrow end, but I thought I'd have it pointing 'outwards' this time...not very well explained I know, I'm still not feeling too clever myself after last night!! So...I'm hoping that this counts as an arrow of sorts...sorry to the CASology girls if it doesn't ;) It's their 62nd challenge over there already...can you believe that?!! It feels like they only started up yesterday! ;)
Thank you for stopping by guys and gals... ;)
