Hi Susan here....
It is that time again, we are half way through the challenge over at Fussy and Fancy so Group B has the chance to give you all some more inspiration so that you can decide to come and join us. The ongoing challenge theme is -
'Back to School'
For full details of the challenge and to see all the inspirational work from Group A and B take a look over at Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog.
Now onto my card....
My backing paper is all from my stash. I used bright bold colours because it is a card for a child, and bright colours are fun for kids cards....
All the fancy school buttons are from our local market, we have had them in our stash for ages.
I used several pieces of bright coloured card to paper weave, I liked this effect. It's a simple technique that even children do in school when they are making things to bring home for their Mums.
This gorgeous image is from Bugaboo and I have used promarkers to colour and shade. I cut the image out and then stuck it onto a base green card that I trimmed to the shape of the image.
This is the inside of the card, showing the card school ABC border, this comes in 12 inch strips with a fabulous curved edge and is great for cutting out the odd letter as I did for the front of my card. The sentiment I used on the inside has been designed by Ann Vento and is available from Raindrop Echo Designs.
Thank you for taking the time to look, and for leaving all your wonderful comments
Love and hugs
