2nd post of the day - please scroll down for earlier post
Hi there - me again!
Well it IS Saturday and there's always likely to be a second post on a Saturday - with it being sketchie day too!!
My card dried out (see earlier post for that to make sense) and it looked RUBBISH with a water stain round the image so I knew that was never going to work but, in principle, the card was still OK and had a lovely piece of lime green grosgrain ribbon FIRMLY attached so there was nothing for it but to recycle it! I was trawling blogs this morning and came across a reference on SallyB's blog to the Penny Black Saturday challenge buffet so I checked it out here and, sure enough, I thought I could make this work with my sketchie. You have to pick any FOUR items from the buffet and ribbon was one of them (CHECK!) so I just needed to pick three more - since I needed to cover up my water stain I selected patterned paper, gemstones and buttons - BINGO. I found this adorable diva image by Penny Black which meant my card could be entered and off I went! For the "Mirror Mirror" twist of the CMLI challenge I selected MIRROR card (like it?!).
