Good morning, How are we all?
The card I would like to share with you today I made for my friend. It is her granddaughter's birthday soon and she is having a bike. This cute image of Magnolia Tilda I thought would make a smashing card.
Blank 5" white card

Ribbon and card candy from my stash
I am going to enter this card into two craft challenges.
Polka Doodles challenge
The theme is red and white and it is the first time I have entered this challenge. I follow the wonderfully talented Nikky Halls blog and I love her CD-Rom's, especially the Love and Cherish and Paper Boutique, which has a fabulous monkey on, which i have used lots when Mr Charlie needs a card for his school friends. Please pop over and see the wonderful cards and projects the design team have made.
Sketch n Stash challenge blog
The sketch this week was perfect for the card I was making. Are you like me, make the same kind of cards using a similar card layout? That is where sketches come into there own, stretching my imagination and challenging me to do a card or project out side my comfort zone. The other thing is that Sketch n Stash encourage you to find a neglected piece of stash and use it on your card. For me it was the gingham ribbon and the Tilda image, which I stamped for months ago, but the right project had not cropped up. I recommend you pop over and look at the sketch and the great cards the design team have made to give us some inspiration.
