I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 20. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 25 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Crafters Companion Monthly Challenge #17 - UPDATED


This is my DT card for this month's challenge on CRAFTERS COMPANION MONTHLY CHALLENGE which is a theme of:-

PINK & GREEN

I used my Humphrey Xmas CD and used papers and decoupage image and made a tent card with an extra fold at the front.  The paper on the front with the aperture is actually an insert with nestie used to cut an aperture and then accented the printed shape of the insert with glitter pens in pink and green.

Take a lookey at the challenge blog to see the other girlies creations and to join us.


UPDATED
Size of card - 5" x 5" for back the another piece 9" x 5" and scored on the long length at 1", 2", 3" & 6" and folded for mountain folds and stuck to inside bottom of 5" x 5" card at the 1" fold (hope this makes sense LOL)


IMAGE & PAPERS:

SENTIMENT:
