First Card Challenge

Welcome to my new Crafty Cards blog!

I thought it was about time I participated in some of the amazing card challenges that i’ve seen scattered around, and could think of no better way to organise and display the cards i create then to start a blog of my own.

I don’t expect this blog to get much traffic, but if you do stop by, I hope my cards can provide you with that little bit of inspiration you came looking for! Feel free to post a comment or two – I would love to know what you think!

Ok, onto the first card I have created for submission to the Mojo Monday Sketch Blog. This weeks sketch (MOJO193) is quite interesting:

I decided to go with a Square card. A friend from work has recently discovered a new hobby – archery, and it is their birthday next week so this will be perfect. I hope J likes it!

The materials used in this card include:

  • Brown textured cardstock
  • Blue cardstock
  • KaiserCraft Paper – Prairie Lane P445
  • StampinUp Birthday Wishes Stamp
  • Uniball Signo white gel pen
  • ProMarkers to colour
  • Blue grosgrain ribbon
  • Archer Image from

I’d love to hear your thoughts 🙂
