INTAAS - Holiday, Home or Abroad

This card is for the challenge over at International Art and Soul which is 'Holiday - Home or Abroad' and was set by my fellow design team member Jennie.

Due to my eye problems at the minute I'm not able to colour images so I've had to resort to pre-coloured images or photographs and this one is a photograph. I took it yesterday in my back garden but I think I could have chosen a brighter day because this looks really dark and dismal. The only holiday I'm likely to get this year, again, is at home in my garden.

The blue and green cards are by Papermill and my card blank is a 7x7 by Craft K. I embossed the green card with a Crafter's Companion embossalicious folder. I fixed the photo on to blue card and set it as the focal point. The stamp saying 'Enjoy life's moments' was stamped in Memento ink in cocoa and set on blue card before adding to the bottom of the card under the photo. This is going to be the birthday card for my son who lives in Kent - a little view of my garden at the present time. 

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes
Lemon Shortbread - Anything Goes
Crafts Galore - Anything Goes
AAA Birthday - Flowers

INTAAS - Pre-made Topper (Use a pre-coloured image}

This theme was set by CG, DT member at International Art and Soul, so join us in the challenge of using a Pre-made Topper (pre-coloured image).

My card blank is a scalloped 7x7 by Crafts UK. I used Papermill pale pink card as the base mat, rounded the corners with a Carl punch and then added a lilac Papermill card, cut with a Spellbinders scalloped die on top. The pre coloured topper is from a Joanna Sheen CD but I'm sorry I've forgotten which CD it's from and I have too many to go through. In actual fact this is from when my printer was running out of ink and the colour is not a true image but when I printed it off I kept the sheet because I liked it so much. I've added a Craft Box dream catcher charm to the top right and a small charm reading 'Dreaming of the Sea' to the left. 

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes
Lemon Shortbread - Always Anything Goes
Crafts Galore - Anything Goes

My apologies if I don't get to visit your blog. I've developed hay fever at my age and am having great problems with my eyes. I'm taking antihistamines which have helped a little but not a lot. Ugh.
