Lil Patch of Crafty Friends.


Well today is a special one as I've been asked to join the fun Design Team over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends The blog has gone back to the original owner after a well cared for break by Lynn.

We have two great sponsors this time around and I have chosen a image from Fabrika called the dancing-squirrel isn't she so cute. They have generously given the winner 3 digis from their store.

For this card I have removed a slice off the front panel so the image sits above. The card is a 5x7 bright white card stock.
The papers are from my stash, I have had them for quite some time and they came out of a magazine so cost me nothing! I covered the inside back with the owl paper and the front with leaf vellum. As you can see I have cut her out and matted her on to a stitched mat in a pumpkin colour.
The flowers are from my stash and I added a couple of brads to the centers to pull all the colours together. I added a few open leaves and a button along with a few drops of stickles glue.

The sentiment strip is raised up and the sentiment itself is one from Verve from their Simply Amazing set .

Here is a little side on view.

I do hope you will come on over and join in the fun, we are as always a "anything goes" challenge so come and share your makes! Pop on over to visit with the other girl on their blogs to see what great things they have made.
