When I saw our challenge graphic for the first time, I knew that I wanted to make a guy card. I love More Mustard and Certainly Celery (both now discontinued). I created the background by mixing stamps from Off the Grid and Gorgeous Grunge - sort of reminds me of my son's school books!! I cut the flag from Certainly Celery design paper. I made the sentiment by mixing stamps from Hello My Name Is and Expand Your View - both sets have some fab words. I stamped them onto a grid journalling card, cut it down to size and then rounded two of the corners and layered it onto black card. I finished the front with some enamel dots. The inside is simply a repeat of the background, but created using second and third generation impressions - that way I can still write a message inside. I used the layout from the current Seize the Sketch - STS#6 challenge.
Don't forget to check out the inspiration cards from the rest of the Design Team - we have a really mixed selection of cards for you - showing just how versatile the colours are! That's all for now. I'm off to do some more ironing - sadly that stuff never goes away ;)
