Cute Card Thursday '3 Embellishments' Challenge
The challenge at Cute Card Thursday this week is to use 3 different types of embellishments on your card and we have a fabulous prize for one randomly chosen winner which has been kindly donated by Tracy Jane Crafts.
I have stamped all the images and coloured them with Prismacolors and Sansador. Edwin and the house are by Magnolia, the truck is by Stampin Up and the cobbles are by Art Impressions. I have added Glossy Accents to the truck wheel and bumpers. My 3 different types of embellishments are the cross head snaps, the ribbon and the tiny little gem on Edwin's trousers. The papers are from my stash and I have used my new Stampin Up spiral punch. I love this punch and have been using it so much recently.
I have nearly finished making the cards for my stall, hopefully I'll manage to sell a few!! I just have to help Grant make some cards now as he is hoping to sell some for his enterprise scheme at school.
