365 Cards - Day 94 - Ad Inspired and Papertake Weekly

First of all I would like to wish Tammy a very happy Birthday!

I love the Ad inspired challenges over at 365 Cards and this one did not disappoint me. I could have made a dozen cards with everything that inspired me about this Ad, the colours, the shoes with the holes design in them, the stripe of the tie, the Roses, I could go on but I think you get the picture.



here it is



I took this sketch by Dawny over at Papertake Weekly challenges to start me off and because it also reminded me of the Ad, the Ad has 9 squares but this sketch only has the 3 strips but it sort of fits.



I love the colour combination and it just happens to be one of my favourites at the minute so this was perfect.

The papers I have used are Digital Papers from The Shabby Princess and are called Urban Kiwi.
I printed out the ones I wanted and cut them to size and mounted the strips onto Black card, the centre panel is another piece of Urban Kiwi paper that I ran through the script CB folder, this has been mounted onto Green then onto Black. The shape has been coloured in using a Black Marker pen which was them embossed before I added it to my card.

Hope you Like it!
