Quick Card

Thursday, 3 May 2012

Morning everyone!

I think this is the fastest card I've ever made!  It usually takes me a full evening (at least!) to make a card but I made this one in under an hour! Go me!  I must admit though that I did have the image already coloured.  I must do a few more pre-coloured images!

I realised that it was a friends birthday in a couple of days and I didn't want to be late with the card (like I usually am!) so got it made pronto!  I took it to work with me to send out with the post and it was only when I got there that I realised I only had 2nd class stamps, so I hope she did get it on time after my effort!

Anyway, here's the card:

I used this weeks Sketch Saturday sketch.  The image is LOTV "Milly Just For You" which I coloured with promarkers: Skin; Sunkissed pink, Oatmeal, Blush, Pastel pink. Hair; Umber, Walnut, Cocoa, Cinnamon.  Dress; Burgundy, Hot pink, Lipstick red. T-shirt; Marine, Turquoise, Green.  Flower; Gold, Mustard, Daffodil Bloom.  Leaf; Olive green, Marsh green, Pale citrus.
It's been cut out with Spellbinder dies.

The papers are MME, Stella & Rose, Gertie papers.  I used a cuttlebug embossing folder for the wee bit sticking out above the image and some pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts below the image.  The sentiment is a LOTV one which I stamped onto a spellbinder die-cut and then I drew some faux stitching around it.

The inside sort of mirrors the front, and uses up the leftover bits of the paper nicely!
