Sketch & Stash and Creatalicious Challenges

Hi all,
Well, call that a race - humf! Pit crews should be shot if they let their driver down!!! Oh well, rant over - time for my second and last post for today.

I wanted to do a card for the Creatalicious Challenge at Bizzy Becs which was to do a card with a theme for a Dad ('cos it's father's day in Oz next month), you just needed to use the colour brown and add some metal. I needed some inspiration for how to lay it out so I decided to follow the sketch at sketch and stash, as shown below.

I used papers from my Hot Off The Press stash which I've had for ages and it was from one of their Sarabooks called Ivory. The "DIY" letters came from a pack of Dovecraft Crystal Effects stickers which again I've had for ages and just never used. The tools were some charms I bought ages ago at one of the Hobbycraft exhibitions at the NEC. The sentiment was one I bought from Readicut ages ago. (Seems I've had alot of neglected stash I have never used!!) Anyway guys hope you like it.
