Forum Card Kit 1

We've just had a swop on the card forum I am a member of and it was for card kits that had been put together by someone else. I have head dreadful problems with my post this year and the ones that had been sent to me were lost so one of the wonderful ladies Natalie put together another 3 just for me :)

This is the card I made with the first kit and all of the items used were provided for me and you had to use at least some of it in your card. Believe me when I say that there was loads in it.

The backing paper has different shades of purples in it and had a grid type design from the top left hand corner. I used this to cover the card blank and used the lines on it to place the ribbon alongside. The stamped image I coloured in with my Promarkers to match, I am really pleased with my shading on this one and think I am getting better at using my pens with practice.

I matted the image onto purple card and then onto the cream shimmer card which was cut with deckled scissors. The sentiment is a metallic purple one that says Happy Birthday (sorry it hasn't scanned in well at all!)

The large velvet flower was included and I cut the cream one from leftover card. The next one was from another sheet of paper. The metal brad is a ribbon brad with a circle of card over and a glittered brad holding it all together.

It was a challenge to use all the items as there were so many and I hope I have done them justice.

Another good thing is that I can enter this in for Day 114's Challenge at 365 Cards which was to make a card where lavender was the dominant colour. That's another old one off the list :)
