Bravo Congratulations Card

by Joanne James8. February 2016 08:00

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had enjoyable weekends; my Sunday saw the completion of Ben's history project with a very fetching Tudor-clothed peg doll, along with an Ann Boleyn and Ann of Cleeves for good measure, so I for one am happier although Ben seems rather relaxed about the whole thing - perhaps that's what happens when you're an 8 year old boy with a crafty Mummy!

Today I have a card for this week's sketch over at Pals Paper Arts:

PPA-286-Feb04 

This is a great sketch and as soon as I saw it I had a card in mind - I so love it when that happens! I need a few congratulations cards at the moment for different friends, colleagues and members of my team who have been achieving goals at the moment so that's what I decided to make using the vertical stamp in the 'Bravo' stamp set:

I took my colour combination from the 'It's My Party' Designer Series Paper - with 12 double-sided designs, this really is the stack that keeps on giving! I used the star-sprinkle pattern for my card today and I love the subtle layering of the diagonals where the patterned paper is cut away and the stripe of Mint Macaron runs across the top. My sentiment is stamped front and centre; I was originally intending to stamp this in Melon Mambo but switched to black to add more emphasis. I coloured in the stripes on some of the letters with my Stampin' Write markers and added a punched Crushed Curry star with a pink enamel dot to finish. This flat card was a relatively quick make for me so I made a few at the same time - bonus!

I have a morning of errands today and a few household chores in store, however I am hoping to get into my craft room this afternoon - wish me luck!

Back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!
