Here is my card
I used the 'Yesterday's Memories' CD and decided to try something a little different. I viewed the CD in My Craft Studio and chose the sepia image of the Blue Tit but printed it at only 50% opacity. I then added colour using KArs peralised chalks to give a subtle effect to the image. The two backing papers are from teh same folder on the CD and I mounted a square of the first paper onto a square panel of Kraft card and trimmed to leave a narrow border and added faux stitching with a white gel pen. I mounted the second paper onto a strip of kraft card that I had punched using a Martha Stewart punch. I stuck this to the right of the square panel and wound a length of gold organza and satin ribbon around the whole thing before sticking it to a 6x6 card blank.
I then added the coloured image (which I has 'fixed' with cheap hairspray) at an angle. The wooden leaves were part of a prize I won in one of my previous challenges and I added the flowers which were punched from the off cuts of the first paper and layered up and finished with a tiny tan coloured pearl in the centre. The single flower had two leaves added that were embossed using a Crafters Companion board out of scraps of kraft card. finally the computer generated sentiment was mounted onto kraft card and trimmed to leave a narrow border and a tan pearl added in the corner. To keep with the natural feel of the card I added three wooden buttons from my stash to the top right.
I lined the inside of the card with the same paper as used on the decorative strip on the front and added a panel of kraft card for the sentiment with a leafy flourish at one side to finish.
I am entering the card into teh following challenges
