Blogging again - more challenges................

I have been a bit different this week - mostly out of necessity. I ran out of time at the shop to get a card done for Papertake Weekly Challenge. It has to be entered by Monday, and I am not in the shop until Tuesday. All my "cute and colouring" stuff is, of course, in the shop. So I had to put my thinking cap on, and this is what I came up with.

I love this Joanna Sheen image (love nearly ALL her stuff). I printed the image and the two papers, then wondered what colour card to put them on. Then the brain switched on (doesn't happen often), and I thought of printing the tartan on a piece of cardstock, but printing it much lighter. Hope you all notice that I lined up the pattern on the front piece with the pattern on the card! (I told you, it doesn't happen often!)

The Papertake challenge is a sketch, always good to do, and I decided to do it to also fit with the Crafty Cardmakers Challenge, which this time is Alternative Christmas, which is either a Christmas image in non-traditional colours (which I chose), or a non-Christmas image in Christmas colours.
