Alex's Birthday and Sketchy Colours #7
The challenge at Sketchy Colours this week is to use brown and turquoise on your card and this birthday card which I made for Alex fits the challenge, he is 11 today.
I have used this fab Ian stamp from The Greetings Farm and some Kaisercraft papers. Ian has been coloured with Distress Inks, the arrows are cut on the Cricut and the 2 sentiment stamps are from Autumn Leaves. A quick post as I am off to watch Wallender!
Supplies
Stamps: The Greetings Farm, Autumn Leaves
Tools: Distress Inks, Cricut, Corner Punch, Pearls
DP: Kaisercraft
