the layout for the card below..

this is my layout of the sketch before i tried to place it on a card.. and relised i had not done any measurements and made it 2 big..... can u tell i am newish to all this bloggin...lol... got so carried away...!!!!! the sketch is from sketch saturday...http://sketchsaturday.blogspot.com/

here is a card with a story... it should make you giggle

hi everyone...

this should give you all a good little giggle...!!! i found a wonderful sketch challenge to do yesterday.. and i got a brilliant idea in my head of what i wanted to use and what stamp and colours i wanted to use... so off i went doing my layout...!!!!i stamped and coloured and cut and stuck and proceded to make what i think is a great layout... i was every so proud of it.... i stuck it on a 6by6 page and added a matchim purple behind it to match my nestie cut out... added my ribbon and embelishments... and i love it... then i went to stick it down.... me being me rushed off without checkin my measurements...so i had a lovely layout that was way to big to fit on a normal square card or even an a5 ... so i was gutted...!!! so i asked some friends on a forum i visit(craftycardscrappers) if they had any brill idea's.. and the one that kept poppin up was an a3 card or use 2 a4 peices of card and stick them 2gether..... so this is what i have done... but i have added some acertate in the middle and used dst to stick it all 2gether and used eyelets to help it stay in place and give decorative effect..!!!! so i am now a happy bunny and hopin i can still add my card to the sketch....lol

Twin card for a boy and a girl

I have use Elzybells art stamps a baby in a basket for both sides of the card... i have used my nestie for the background i have placed each baby on.. and on the front of the card i have added a the same verse... i have used chalk on the verse to highlight the verse and to add colour to the plain card stock...
i have used distressed ink, water colour pencils and h2o's on the image... giving it added depth and sparkle.... the ribbon was from a local craft shop....i hope you enjoy viewing this card as much as i have enjoyed making it.

inside of twin card

the paper i used on the inside is a freebie download.. and i used two babygrows to embelish.. added their names down each side... Teegyn and Alex....
