Challenge Card

I have decided to enter the challenge this week over at Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog. This week there is a sketch to work from. This is only the second time I have been brave enough to enter a challenge. My first ever was on this blog to and I was honoured to receive a top 3 place, I was chuffed to bits. Well I haven't felt up to crafting much lately, but I really want to get back to it, so I thought I would have a go this week. I haven't worked from a sketch before, and found it a quite interesting experience.

This is what I have come up with. I have been asked to make a card for a soon to be new arrival, so I thought I could perhaps combine the two. The papers are from some 6"x6" Papercraft4u pads that I have had for ages. The stamp is an Anita's stamp, again had it for ages and ages. It is stamped twice and decoupaged. I carefully cut slits where the ribbon design was so I could actually thread some proper ribbon through. The edges of the frame shape were coloured with a chalk ink pad for shadow effect.
Hope to like it....
