Forty win(g)ks

It’s Kelly’s turn to host and provide the sketch this week at Willow Sketchie Challenge :

There’s also a recipe to use two different papers.

You could be the lucky winner of a voucher to spend at Willow Designs too!Don’t forget to stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational  bunch.

For my card I’ve used one of the pre-coloured  toppers,which already has a sentiment on it,and two papers from the Polly Pickleberry CD-rom by Willow Designs.To add some extra interest I just had to this wavy corrugated kraft card I found.All corners were rounded,to match the topper as it comes that shape,and the edges distressed.To finish the card I’ve used some lovely gingham ribbon and decorative staples.You are supposed to buy a special stapler to go with them but when I came across them in a bargain bucket I took the chance and just use a pokey tool to make the holes then fold them over at the back with my finger.Love it when a plan comes together!

Supplies :
Image and papers : Polly Pickleberry CD-rom by Willow Designs
Card : Core’dinations Roy G. Biv cardstock pad,Wavy corrugated kraft card
Tools : X-cut guillotine,Siesta Large Corner Rounder Punch,Tim Holtz Paper Distresser,Pokey tool for adding staples
