Cute Card Thursday ~ Challenge 31, Friday Sketchers #23 & WOJ Challenge 4.

I've done a 3 in 1 this week. I'm finding it increasingly hard to find the time to fit them all in, but I promise I'll do my best! So this weeks challenge at Cute Card Thursday is Buttons and Bows. Beatrix from Germany is hosting the sketch at Friday Sketchers she has created an easy sketch for us. With this sketch you can combine different geometric elements - round things, ovalness and rectangles and Whiff of Joy challenge 4 is "Autumn Colours"

I just adore this card and think I might need to stroke it a while before I hand it over to my bestest friend Vicki who wanted a card for her fast approaching 17 year old daughter Laura-Jayne (or as I loving call her Lolly-J). The photo really doesn't do it justice, its much prettier IRL. CS ~ Pearl card from Poundland, DP's ~ Java Time from here as a free download, image ~ RAK from Kathy (which I shall post about later) she's coloured with Whisper markers, swirls are cut in brown pearl card using my new flourish die that I got this week off Ebay and my trusty Cuttlebug, coffee mug is also a die cut run through the CB, Flower ~ RAK from my gorgeous blog buddy, Jill (will show those later too), gems and ribbon from stash.
