sketch saturday challenge card

Morning All,
Just a quick post before heading to bed as i was working the dreaded night shift last night,heres my card for this weeks sketch saturday challenge,i tryed something very different for me this time,im not too sure about so hopefully you will all give me your honest opinions on it as im not sure bout it at ALL
Heres what ive used:

Image is stamped using worn lipstick distress ink,im not too sure who these stamps are from but have had them a very long time and have never inked them up,used nesties and my new Martha stewart border punch which i got off dies to die for and must say that the service i got was fabulous,sentiment is from the same stamp set and also the sentiment and babys footprints which ive used to make the backing paper i then inked round the edges also! Soz if this isnt making sense as i can feel my eyes getting VERY heavy so really need my bed now i think lol

thanks for looking

love n hugs

Colour Create - brown orange and green

Heres my take on this weeks colour create challenge which this week is brown,orange and green and with the extra potion of making a male card

well i must say i dont really like making mens cards as i can never think of anything to put on them and i dont have very many male images,i did struggle quite a bit with this one and it took me forever to finally get it finished lol but i got there in the end..

so heres what ive used

downloaded plaid paper from raspberry road designs (free download)
Woj image from spring stamp club-coloured with distress inks and marvy leplumme pens and ive distressed the edges and tinted them with tea dye(this is a 1st attempt at this)Ive also distressed and tinted the edges of the paper.
ribbon is papermania
buttons are all from my stash,really like them as they a little different from what i would normally use
orange card stock is from my stash

hope you like it and that the photo is clear enough

thanks for looking
love n hugs

cards ive made recently

Heres a few cards that ive made recently and dont think ive had them on my blog,if i have soz lol Ive got a new camera so i can take photos of my cards instead of scanning them so as you may notice ive re-done some of my photos,think they a little dark,but with practise im sure they will get better

thanks for looking
