JAI #172 & CASE this Sketch #35

Hi there everyone and happy Friday!

I am so happy that I have been able to make a card that is not related to my DT duties. It is just so nice to grab inspiration from other blogs and create something in your own time.

I have some great friends coming up my way tomorrow to take me out for my birthday. I am really, really excited. Living in a remote area can cause a bit of cabin fever at times but that's why I craft! It is my own little happy place. We are off to see a movie and then dinner. Cannot wait!!!!!

One of my friends has just become a first time Aunty. I know! Another baby!!! So, I decided to use inspiration from two challenge blogs to make her a card.

I have used the photo inspiration over at Just Add Ink which is the front of the new Stampin Up catalogue.

I then combined this with the sketch at CASE this Sketch

Here is my card -

Excuse the poor photography. I don't usually take my photos at night.

These new stamps of mine have been giving me their money worth! I love them so much.

I mainly drew inspiration from the colours in the photo that JAI provided. I embossed the small panel with my Lattice folder which was inspiration taken from the wood frame the girl is holding.

I have used my Banner Greetings (SU), Itty Bitty Banners (SU) and French Foliage (SU) stamp sets.

Well, I hope my friend likes this card (I'm sure she will).  I also loved this sketch!

Thanks so much for looking xx
