Our Sponsor for this week is the wonderful Letraset, so there will be a 5 pack of Promarkers up for grabs
Now onto my card....
Whats nicer than celebrating having a friend......its the best thing in the world to be able to talk to someone and tell them things that you wouldn't tell anyone else and know that the person you're talking to isn't judging you....That's what a friend is!!
I love making these gatefold cards they are so effective when they are done. My backing papers are all bits and bobs from my stash, I have punched borders and put them top and bottom throughout the card, glitter has been added to the punched design. My flowers are from Hobby Craft...I couldn't resist the flowers made with organza they are so gorgeous, the leaves have been made using a punch. The little butterflies have been made using a punch. I inked them and glittered them before adding pearls for the bodies.
This gorgeous little digi image has been designed by Lexi, it is called Georgina Giraffe, available at Fairy Dust Crafts. I have used the image twice and flipped one of the images over....I have used chalks to colour it, this has to be one of my favourite colouring mediums, I love the shading you get. The grass was coloured with promarkers.
This is the inside of the card showing that I have kept the theme going throughout the card. The ribbon and pearls are from our local market as usual.
This beautiful sentiment has been designed by Lexi and is called 'The Gift' you can find it in Fairy Dust Crafts. There are some absolutely fabulous digi images and sentiments here....go along and take a look!!
