2 Joy Riders Cards

Lucky me lately, I won 2 craft prizes with this card, how good is that!

Red,white and blue,London,Royalty and the Olympics, so on trend at the moment,really inspiring me with my crafting.
I bought the new crafts beautiful mag,issue 240 and it was full of gorgeous trendy A4 papers ,the one I used is by Alison Butler. I think it goes so well with my new lili of the valley stamp "ride with me", coloured with bold pro markers. I had a quick Google at lambretta images and these colours are authentic. It makes a great celebration card for many occasions I think.

Challenges entered:

sketch and stamp: followed Sarah's sketch (I've rotated it)
Sir Stampalot April challenge: Happy Birthday (it's their 2nd Birthday)
my mums craft shop: stamp it

The same stamp "ride with me" but with a very different look. The colours are muted pastel tones , I coloured with copic markers then highlighted with water coloured pencils.The papers, letters from Paris by wild rose studio.The glossy stamp embellishments old stash.

challenges entered:
sweet stop challenge: followed the sketch above.
stamp with fun: no Easter card
stamptacular Sunday: playin' with pastels

Popping to Chester this afternoon,want to have a look in M&S,the weather has turned here,steady rain, I know we all need it and the garden does, so different from the glorious day last Monday spent in very sunny Llangollen.

happy crafting. janex
