I missed the birthday - better not miss the challenge too!!

Thursday, 21 May 2009


I missed one of my forum friends birthday last week - ooops! Sorry Christine!! And I made her a card following the challenge from Just Magnolia which is up tomorrow and I don't want to miss the challenge - especially as I made the card on sunday!

This is the sketch:


And this is my card


I coloured the gorgeous dragonfly Tilda with pro-markers.


I used papers from the Basic Grey Sultry pad, ribbon from stash threaded through some silver mesh ribbon and some card candy instead of brads. I punched the flowers and the sentiment is from a See D's set - I thought it suited both the occasion and the image down to the ground!

I didn't take a photo of the inside as I didn't really decorate it - I did say the card was already late!!

Update on invitations... Almost finished!!! Yay!!!

Thanks for dropping by!
