Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge #171 .........

While searching around over the weekend, I came across the Stamping 411 challenge site and decided I'd have my first try at one of their sketches.

I've also been admiring the beautiful vintage style on Kelly's wonderful blog and thought that I'd finally give it a go myself with this sketch.

Here's the sketch -

And my card -

I'm not sure that I really pulled off the vintage look. I think it's more shabby chic than vintage but I'm really happy with it any way. It's certainly a lot different to my normal clean style.

I'd love to hear what you think :)

Thanks for visiting!

Clean and Simple Sketch Challenge....

I thought that I'd have a go at another challenge today. As I was searching around I came across the Clean and Simple FTL110 Challenge and thought it was perfect for an idea that I've had floating around in my head for a little while now.

Here's the sketch -

My card -

And the inside -

While it's not really clean, simple or exactly like the sketch it came together pretty quickly and was inspired by the sketch. I really like how it turned out too.

Thanks for visiting!
