"Get it all out" for a sketch ! ! !

Well, I wanted to make my blog post title interesting for once rather than writing "a card for . . . " so I have joined two challenge themes together to make my title. What do you think?

Now the sketch I followed was another great one from Dawn over at Inspirational Card Sketches (ICS) and was just the thing I needed to make a "Thank You" card for my parents for a wonderful weekend away.

and I "Got it all out" for this weeks "Fab'n'Funky" challenge which asked us to use our neglected stash. I have used some paper scraps I had kept (just in case): discovered chipboard embellies that I have had for eons; finally, I found 2 packets of the most wonderful Hero Arts flowers that I hadn't even opened . . . scandalous!

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:

Simon Says Challenge - "Things with wings"
One Stop Craft Challenge - "Things with wings"
Little Red Wagon - to use ruffles - I have used the gold organza ribbon, ruffled it and stapled the ribbon to my card.

Have a great week everyone and am off to finish catching up with you all. I did start on Sunday and then became distracted with all the great cards etc and the really cool links to tutorials . . . before I knew it I had bookmarked oodles of new blogs and written down loads of new techniques I want to try . . . isn't blog land cool !?!?!

Take care,
