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!
