Welcome to another week

Morning readers,

I have a make to share with you, it was actually made a couple of weeks ago and mailed to a friend but I'm pretty sure she should have received it by now so it won't spoil the surprise - least I hope you've had it, Cherry?? Either way, I now feel I can blog this project, so here it is

My card
And a closer view of the sparkle
And the inside and envelope
Materials used:
  • 15cm square white, 300gsm, scallop edged card blank and matching sized envelope
  • 13½cm square of white card
  • Black card and yellow card cut to form narrow borders around the image panel
  • Snippets of card in white, black and yellow
  • NitWits image stamped on snippet of white card using Memento tuxedo black ink and fussy cut out
  • Alcohol markers to colour
  • Stampotique bar code image stamped using Memento tangelo ink
  • NitWits star image randomly stamped using Distress Ink in mustard seed 
  • Once the panel had been stamped I then attached the nitwits bear so that he was swinging off the bottom and then mounted on black and then yellow card and randomly added dots of white using a Pitt big stampers pen and embellished with Stardust stickles on both the bear and the stars

I'll be entering it for the following challenges:-
