Denim ...

Hi there ...
I hope you are having a good start to the week ... Thanks so much for your well wishes ... I'm still not feeling 100% but I'm no worse so that's a good thing .. I think it's a just head cold

So I have a card that I did for 2 different challenges ... I used the Sketch from this week's challenge at 


... And I used the colours from the new challenge at 


The DT at both these challenge blogs have terrific samples ... definitely worth a visit

I did a masculine card ... 


Everything I used I have had for the longest time ...
The BG paper is from a Hot Of The Press Pad ... The wooden frame paper is from the Paper Boutique
and I used one of the WaltzingMouse stamps "Text It" to stamp a background behind those pockets


The pockets are from a digital file I got years ago by Gina Jane ... they are so cool ... they really look like fabric!


I cut some stars from the denim paper and attached them with some star brads ... those little brown metal dots that you find on the corner of your jean pockets (bet you're looking now) I replicated using sequins
I also added some stitching to the pocket tops and on my card ... and used a another WaltzingMouse stamp, a sentiment from "Fancy Phrases"
Hopefully I have also kept within the colours for CR84FN too

Ok ... I will be back in the morning - I'm hosting this weeks challenge at CCCB ... See you then

Have a lovely evening / Day

This is so different for you, Ros...but still as fabulous! Those denim pockets do look so much like real denim fabric. I love your background stamping and those star brads and the sequin trims, too x

This is indeed supercool Ros! Your pockets look like actual denim, had a closer look and I couldn't tell the difference (but maybe that's just old age creeping up on me, lol!) A fab birthday card!
