Challenges 4 Everybody DT Card

Hello again,

This is my third and final post of today then i'm off to try and get some rest.

I've been barking like a sael all night and my poor chest and throat hurt so much :-(

Today see's the start of a new challenge over at Challenges 4 Everybody and as you all no there are NO RULES - just create whatever takes your fancy and link it up!!! Simples!

My card for this challenge is for a friends birthday at work - luckily she's not a blogger (or a crafter for that matter) so i'm safe to share.

I chose to use another image from the wonderful Krista Smith for my card:

Isn't she soooo sweet! I coloured her with promarkers and added liquid pearls to the background.

This is a large 8x8 card as the image is quite big.  I kept the design very simple as my friend isn't a frilly fancy type of gal!

I made the rosette style embellishment with a LOTV sentiment and ribbon - it's really large IRL but the card can take it I think.

The papers are one of my latest buys and areNitWits Promises by LOTV.

Inside has been decorated to compliment the front.

I do hope you like my card and that you will join in our new challenge.

I'm off now to try and rest.

Love n hugs
