Using Urban Elements from Make it Crafty

Hi everyone I'm here today to show you a boys birthday cad I have created using mainly the different urban elements collections and  racing Rick from Make it Crafty.

I don't know about you but I really struggle making cards for boys, I don't know if it is because you just cant go adding lots of pretty embellishments? Anyhow I have always been a big fan of the Urban Elements so I thought it was about time I used them and challenged myself  and this is what I came up with....

I let all the elements be the "feature" of the card....Racing Rick has been foam mounted and so has the car so they pop from the page. I have to say I had so much fun making this card and just loved that Racing Rick reminded me of my son with his hair in his eyes!
I used a piece of designer paper I had cutting out the letters to create my sentiment. Added a bit of distressing and faux stitching and whola I had a boys card!
I would normally list the copics I have used but I used so many the list would just be huge!

Magnolia Down Under Challenges - Sketch

Good morning ladies and maybe even gentleman! Sorry warped humour already!!!!

Today it is Sunday which means we have a new challenge for you play along with at Magnolia Down Under Challenges and this week we have a gorgeous sketch to inspire you. 

Tomorrow is my baby girls 11th Birthday, feels like just yesterday she was born I cant believe she is already 11. I am scared to think how quick the next 11 years will go! 

So when I sat down to make my card I knew that I had to use one of her favourite Tilda's, pink paper and of course an Owl...she is just Owl crazy....I am working on an owl project for Make it Crafty and cant wait to get it finished to show you...ok back to this weeks card joining all those elements together and this is what I came up with......

and here is the sketch:

I got one tag and then used more gems to create the bubbles and put this where the second tag is on the sketch. Quite a basic as in Clean and Simple card, but I am liking that style at the moment and I have also found that I just don't have the time to sit there pushing embellishments around for hours trying to make it not look like someone has vomited all over my card!

I played with some different colours with my copics this week and have to say I like the effect. I also had fun drawing some grass and then painting some flowers on it. 

I know I say this every week but you rally must pop by the main blog and check out the inspiration  We have Lillemor joining us for the first time and then of course our regulars have just rocked this challenge. As I was scrolling down to add my card I kept going oooo ahhhhh! Of course you will also see the Live & Love Crafts are our sponsor this week.

So that's it from me today. I will be back in a few days. Off to my little man's footy match soon. 

Thanks for stopping by, until next time
