Hi everyone and firstly apologies for lack of commenting on your blogs but we were away for a few days in Portsmouth, then we had a funeral and lastly back and forward to the kitchen suppliers! I'm hoping it will all be finished tomorrow except for the flooring.  Anyway back to crafting, I have made a card that hopefully covers both challenges this week over at Less is More and Make My Monday.
LIM have a sketch and MMM want a male card so this is what I came up with:

A6 brown base card
 Judikins vintage background and keys
Wow Sentiment
SU Marina Mist and Chocolate Chip

The Craft Barn have an ongoing Alpha challenge where they select a letter and then you can alter a dictionary by embellishing the word that you choose. The letter this week is C and I have chosen the word CLASP.

I inked the page with DI's and the stamps are from Anna Griffin hardware set. Thanks for taking the time to visit and hopefully leaving me a comment:)

I love Judikins stamps. You made the keys look like they're 3-D popping off the page. Very eclectic and very cool. I've never heard of an alter dictionary. It sounds intriguing. What a beautiful pages you created.
