ICSketches 43 GD card

Well it's my 3rd week as Guest Designer at Inspirational Card Sketches, just one more week to go :o( It's another great sketch, and the DT have made some gorgeous cards, so have a go if you can!

I've used a new Digistamp Boutique image - this cute little dragon is Harold :o) He's coloured with promarkers, and cut out with nestie circles. I've then drawn around the nestie and cut another slightly larger circle out to mount him on. The paper is Daisy Bucket and the cardstock is DCWV. I've used the smallest of my new Nellie Snellen circle dies to cut the little fancy circle that I've mounted the numbers on - this card is for my cousin who will be 21 (obviously lol) at the weekend. I actually can't believe he's going to be 21 - I remember taking him to the park in his buggy when he was a baby! The numbers are cut with the Sizzix 'night & day' alphabet dies. Added a couple of buttons from stash to finish.

Apologies for the less than brilliant photos, it's getting so hard to get a decent photo now, it's sooo dull all the time! Think I'm getting a daylight lamp for Christmas though, so hopefully that will help.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:


  1. Lovely card, Lisa. I've ordered a light tent from amazon for £13. Don't know what it'll be like but I've seen other people using them.

    Bye for now.
