Brown and Blue

Now this for me was a tough challenge.  Not only was there a sketch to follow but also the colours had to be brown and blue!  I have to have someone in mind when I am making a card otherwise I can sit for hours looking at my craft stash and it just looks back at me...  However, once I had decided the card was going to be for my sister's wedding anniversary my creative juices began flowing.  So here it is (at last!)

The backing papers are taken from Now That's Funky - Funky Hand craft cd and also the circle the birds are sitting on.  I have used Kay Carley stamps on the sentiment tag and also on the strip on the left hand side of the card.  The birds are taken from the Polka Doodle - Sugar Birdies craft CD.  The blue strip along the bottom of the card is punched with the Martha Stewart Arch Lattice punch and I have finished off the card with 3 prima flowers centered with Craftwork Cards - iced gems card candy.

As you can see it is a gatefold card - which I just wanted to make for a change.

Glad this is now finished as it needs delivered by Saturday so I better go and get it in the post..  Bye for now Vx
