Allsorts #15

As well as the gorgeous sketch by Jules, this week over at the Allsorts Challenge Blog they asked for 'Torn Edges'.

I needed to make a male birthday card this week - well I need to make 2 actually - so when I saw this sketch I thought it would be ideal.

I've used a fab Penny Black image that I've watercoloured and my Nesties to matt & layer it. The yellow backing is more of the gorgeous 'Gemstones' and the tan that I've used for the torn pillars and the matt is Co'ordinations. I also embossed and lightly sanded the matt piece.

The sentiment is actually ribbon that I have stabilised on a piece of card. Card Candy to finish.


  1. Fab card Carol. I love the colours and embossing on this. That ribbon looks fantastic.

    What a gorgeous card. So pleased you enjoyed the challenge.

    Perfectly coloured image and your idea for the sentiment is great. I was taking a closer look at how you had done it before I read your explanation.

    Thank you for joining in the Allsorts Challenge this week.
