Look at this sketch, beautiful. I've made 2 simple cards but the possibilities are endless. If you would like to play along click HERE

Do you think this would be suitable for a male card?

Wow, Rach - these cards are FANTASTIC!! I always love to see what you come up with, and I love both of these. The first card is perfect for a male, and I love the watercoloured images on your second card. I hadn't even thought to watercolour those stamps!!

Wow! This is such a pretty sketch. You have done a gorgeous job with it too, Rachel. If only I hadn't been shopping all day in Sydney (3 hr drive there & back) and 6 hours shopping ... I might feel inclined to got and play this challenge myself ... just because of the inspiration here! Hugs Andrea xxx

I love both of your cards Rachel. They are both lovely. I definitely think number one is suitable for a male.

TWO candies! Love them both to bits. I really like your green ink on crumb cake, then your watercolouring with white craft ink is an awesome idea! I adore that delicate fern image :) Your tiny pearls just finish the card beautifully.
