A card at last!



Ok, I know I shouldn't complain about the lovely sunny weather we're having, but I'm hopeless in the heat - it's sooooo hot in my craft room and it's sapping my mojo! So I haven't made anything for a few days, and now that I have it's really not my best effort.

This super cute image is from Di's Digi Downloads and is available here, I've coloured it with promarkers as usual. The pretty checked paper is a new download from Bearly Mine that I've printed out onto linen card, cardstock is coredinations. For a change I've lightly edged everything with Tattered Rose distress inks - I don't normally do this unless I absolutely have to for a challenge, but I felt like doing something different. The image is mounted onto a nellie snellen die cut, the craftwork cards sentiment is mounted on a nestie circle and then another nestie I can't remember the name of... blossom 2 maybe? Butterfly cut with a MS punch, pearls and tiny flowers from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Oh Lisa, what can I say it's absolutely wonderful, and I never thought of printing it out onto linen cardstock before.....that's a great idea, I can see the linen effect on it. You've done a fabulous job using my papers. I hope you don't mind me nicking it to put on my blog. You've done a fabulous job.
And I know what you mean about the heat...its zapped my card making mojo for the day lol.

This card is lovely Lisa, we don't need to display every cardmaking skill in one card. I always prefer the clean and simple look, especially with such a lovely image and fab colouring. Di.x
