Well, its already past midnight and I have just finished crafting. Impatient as I am, I can't wait till tomorrow to upload my new card. This morning I was commissioned by a colleague of mine to make him a Wedding Card for his son and daughter-in-law to be. It was quite unexpected but I always like having an excuse to craft. He wished to have green and/or blue on the card. The papers I used are the closest colours I had at home. Unfortunately, the colours in the picture are not so true to the real card. For the actual colours you can visit the link below.
Ismaki Challenge #13: This is my first Ismaki Challenge and the first time I actually followed someone else's sketch. Thanks to Petra who provided this sketch. I had to make some changes as it was a pity to hide the doodles on the left hand corner of the backing sheet. Well, I hope you like it. As always please feel free to leave any comments and don't be shy of being honest - constructive criticism is always beneficial.
