A Gem Of A Challenge 17 ~ My Theme, "Anything But Square"...

Hi all!
Time for a new challenge over at A Gem Of A Challenge!
First of all I would like to thank those who had a go with my sketch for the last challenge. There were some brilliant entries and I found it really hard to pick my 'top 3'. The winners are listed on the challenge blog.

So for my next challenge of the month, I have a theme for you...

'Anything But Square'

Though I do love square cards, I think we can sometime forget to have dabble with something different.


My little Nephew is 7 tomorrow, so here is the card I've made for him.

I used the fabulous 'Skateboard Andy' stamp from Pink Gem Designs. You can also get him as part of a great value A7 set here.
For a change I stamped onto linen textured card. I used my Copics to colour. You can't blend the colours as well as you can when using smooth card, and the colours come out a little darker, but I do like the canvas effect finish.

The 'Special Day Calender' stamp is also PGD, here.

The stripy paper is a Pink Gem Designs download here.

I also used;
Papermania kraft card blank,
Go Kreate dies,
Martha Stewart zig zag punch,
Creative Expression Brick embossing folder,
Circle nesties,
Curly font printed on pc,
Ribbon,
Making Memories clip.

Can't wait to see what you come up with!

We are at my Nephews party this evening, so I'll have to catch up with you all when I can.

Thanks for stopping by!
Jenny xx
