Now onto my card....

Today I wanted to make an extra special card, and I love the pop-out cards, they have such a wow factor.....
My backing papers are all from my stash, from various scrapbooking packs. The little butterflies are made using a punch and then colouring with inks and the added touch of glitter and pearls.
The ticket sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs, I love these little tickets they are so versatile.
The ribbons and gems are as usual from our local market.

This is the inside of the card showing a beautiful sentiment and frame both from Raindrop Echo Designs, I have used chalks to colour the frame the same colours as my card, which happen to be the Fussy and Fancy Colours that are needed for the extra bit of the challenge.

My image is from The Stamping Bazaar Store and is called 'Hansel with Flowers'. I love this little image and so easy to colour. I used chalks this has to be one of my favourite colouring mediums.

The large pink rose in the centre of my display I have made using a die and shaping and colouring. The rest of my flowers are from Hobby Craft. The leaves I made using a punch and colouring with inks.

Well there you have it, I hope you liked my celebration card and please join in our 1000 follower challenge over at Fussy and Fancy.

Thank you for looking and for all your wonderful comments
Love Susan
