Around the World


Hi everyone, today's card uses the fabulous sketch from A Gem of a Challenge which I saw and fell in love with on my DT buddy Angie's blog.
I'm also entering this into a few other challenges as well, which are:

Cute Card Thursday - Recipe 1,2,3 (1 punch, 2 ribbons, 3 papers)
Mo's Digital Challenge - Around the World
Do It With Digis - Pink and Girly
Simon Says Stamp - Bingo (Punch, Emboss, Ribbon) You can't really see much of the embossing but I cuttlebugged the scalloped circle with my Swiss Dots folder.

Card Details:
* Image - Mo Manning 'Kimono Girl'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Basic Grey 'Euphoria'
* Punch - MS 'Pop-Up Butterfly border'
* Everything else from my stash

I decided to try something different and coloured the circle mat with promarkers to try and make it more pink & girly. This was after I'd already used 'Lipstick Pink' Distress Inks around the edge and was definitely a process I won't be trying again ! lolol!

Hopefully I've finished the sort out of my craft room, it certainly looks more organised now and gave me a bit more space. Until that is, I ordered masses of cardstock from The Papermill last night.
I think the amount of new stuff that will be arriving is going to take up about 3 times more space that I managed to clear.....ah well!

The promarkering may have been a hassle, but it was soo worth it as it looks great behind Kimono girl. xxx
