more challenges! Kristina first!

wow!! these challenges really do get your brain going!
I have a new flatmate (FM from now on - I think she might be getting addicted!) and she was fascinated that people spend MONEY on this stuff.. and then I was sitting playing around with some new rubber, and she sat down to watch, and all of a sudden, you could see the lightbulb go off!! "ooh" she says. "this is quite cool eh??" "Yes" says I, with a knowing gleam in my eye! "Wanna play?" and the rest is history!
ANYWAY..... one of my blogging sisterhood set a challenge for a masculine valentine's card, and I mentioned it to FM, and about 10 minutes later she came up to me with a little sketch she had jotted down. (aww, bless her!! - see I told you - addicted!) Here is the sketch.

Unfortunately I had kind of already sorted myself out on that challenge so I used the sketch for Kristina's colour challenge. Weird colours again - well one weird one thrown in! That green is LOUD!!
But here is my card (actually, I am not taking total credit - FM told me what colours to put where, and which order and everything - she just wouldn't ACTUALLY do it!!)

this uses two of the new saleabration stamp sets - polka dot punches, and yummy. cardstock is basic black, whisper white so saffron and green galore. Ink is real red.

I have other ideas though so I might be back with another one!

Isn't it just fabulous when you see the light bulb go on in someone's eyes when you're showing them cardmaking.

Nice card, Jenny. I hope FM realises that when the 'light bulb' comes on, there's no turning back! Every space in the house will start to look like a nice 'storage' corner LOL :)
