CTS#104 and CTD#324



Hi everyone!!!


My first post for 2015!!!  Hope you are all enjoying the new year so far!!!!



I'm combining two challenges today.  First up is the sketch challenge over at the CAS(E) this Sketch Blog and then I am also playing along at the Colour Throwdown Blog where the colours for the week are red, black and white.

 
 
 
 
This is the card I have made:
 



I've used my Tim Holtz Alterations Chevron die and a flower stamp from a local craft shop, Great Impressions.  Added some black plastic dots and a button and twine bow and it was done.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.

Thanks so much for popping in and have a lovely day!!!

Keep well!!
Kind regards
Petra
