Mousey Wedding

Tuesday, 25 March 2014

Hello everyone!

What a difference a day makes, to the weather anyway!  Yesterday was wild and today is lovely - lets hope I haven't jinxed it!
It's my mum's birthday on Thursday and then Mother's Day on Sunday and, organised as ever, I have nothing for her yet!  She is so hard to buy for too, I don't know what to get for her, so any suggestions, please share!!

We have a new challenge today at the Creative Card Crew and I missed the last one cos I had the flu so it's nice to be back!

 This fortnight we have 2 sponsors again, the first one being one of our regulars, The Scrapping Center
http://www.scrappingcenter.com/
With a $15 voucher for one lucky winner

And our second sponsor is the fabulous Whiff Of Joy!
http://www.whiffofjoy.ch/
Who are offering 4 digi's to another winner!!

The challenge we have for you this time is...

Animals!

Great or small, we want to see them all!

We were given images to work with by our sponsor so my animals are of the small variety!  Here's what I did..


I made a diamond fold card - I think that's the name for them, it's a while since I made one of these but they are so easy and look fab!  They are difficult to get right in photo's though.


My image is by Whiff of Joy and is called Happy Couple.  I coloured them (very quickly!) with the following Copics: Mice; E44,43,41. Suit; E49,47,44. Dress; E40. Flowers; RV29,25,23.YG17,13. Ears & tail; E21,13,000.


The papers are Melissa Frances, 5th Avenue and I thought it would be nice to mount the image on a rosette, so I used 2 strips of left-over base card stock and started folding!  The sentiment is computer generated and the font is Curlz.


I added a few diamante's here and there for a bit of that all important bling!  There's space on the back for a written greeting.

So that's my animal card, I hope you can join us at the Creative Card Crew - go check out the rest of the DT's fab work to get you started!
