Sven and the Seven Hills Crafts Challenge

Hello All! Hope everyone has had a great week? I've been missing the 30 Day Colouring Challenge and all the fun of seeing everyone's work, but I know it will be back later in the year so I have something to look forward to. 

I started off the challenge by colouring Sven the incredibly handsome Viking, and I ended up colouring him in on the last day too. That last Inktense coloured image I decided to turn into a card for this month's Seven Hills Crafts Monthly Craft Challenge - I'm not sure I'll manage to top my runner's up spot from last month, but it's worth a try (see my challenge wins list!)

It's a sketch challenge this month, and I kept it simple so everyone can admire Sven's beard.  I coloured him in muted earthy tones and die cut him with a SSS stitched square. I then took a piece scrap Neenah and stamped a tiny heart from my Lawn Fawn Best Pun Ever set in Ranger Classic Cherry several times. I die cut it out  with a small stitched circle.

What a hunk! Anyway, back to the card. I took a piece of Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid, cut slightly smaller than A2 and added some twine around it. I then adhered it to an A2 card base.

I added Sven on top and the heart on foam pads in the corner. It was really very simple!

Below is a list of what I used to make this card and where I purchased them. Please note I DO NOT USE affiliate links :)

Thank you so much for reading. Have a great weekend, whatever you are up to :)
