CUTE CARD THURSDAY CHALLENGE NO. 48


And my next card to today is for Cute Card Thursday Challenge No. 48 - Signs of Spring. So for this Challenge I have chosen an image from one of the new Penny Black T-for Transparent Collections called "Garden Friends", which has been coloured with my WC Brushes, and a couple of Sukura Gels pens. Instead of me cutting the image out, I have found a piece of scrap cardstock left lying on my table, which had been used on another project, and have used this scrap as a frame for my image (waste not, want not - I say). The cream card has been run through a Sizzix "Paisley" Embossing Folder, and the corners rounded off, and four pearl brads placed in each corner. The backing paper is from a Basic Grey 6x6 paper pad called "Sugared". And to finish the card off, a piece of cream organza ribbon, tied into a big bow. Hope your enjoyed your visit, and thanks for popping by, and have a fab Sunday!
