2 Sketches 4 You #26 & Cute Card Thursday #61 - Sporting Chance

I wanted to get away from over-cluttering my cards, as my style preference tends towards the minimal, however I think that this one looks just a little stark.

I chose already textured paper for the blues and added a little to the green with a Cuttlebug folder. The image stamp is from Paper Nation, coloured with a mixture of Marvy and Whispers pens, blended with a water brush, and popped onto dimensionals.

The sentiment is Stampin Up, bought on eBay from the States. I bought a couple of sets from this particular seller, who sent me a free stamp of a jar of flowers! I love it. Ill be posting a card with that one soon, so watch out for it! I would happily have paid at least a £2-£3 for it, so as you can imagine I was delighted. Isn't it great to know that there are still caring and generous folks in this world! Warms your heart!


  1. Lovely card Chrissie, love the fresh colours you have used. I prefer minimalist styles rather than over-cluttered and think your card looks great.

  3. Darling father's day card Chrissy! I love simple uncluttered cards:)

  4. How cute, I just love the little golfer, great job with the coloring...

  5. Do you know I don't think it's lacking at all, the balance is just right in my opinion. The colours make the balance work somehow.

    Oh freebie flowers, how fab, I got some off a shop here when I ordered some stamps, such a wonderful kind gesture.


  6. Really cute card, love this!!!
