Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge - 4 November 2011 - Remember

The time has come for another challenge at Sweet Pea Stampers.  This fortnight the challenge is "Remember".
For my card I have used the Crafty Purple Frog decoupage image called "Field of Poppies".  I took a My Craft Studio (MCS) backing paper into word and shrunk down as I am still unable to use MCS as it still won't print to my printer any more.  It is so annoying as I used to use it for virtually all of my cards.  I used some green DCWV card, the backing paper and then just simply did some matting and layering of the image.  The second piece of backing paper I cut out the whole poppy images to decoupage up.  I did the "remember" in Word using Word Art as I thought it was striking.  I have just finished the card off with some ribbon and some black acrylic paint to the centre of the poppies on the decoupage to add a bit of dimension.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Craft Your Days Away - Autumn/fall
Totally Gorjuss - I remember
The Squirrel and the Fox - hats or flowers
Cupcake Inspiration - Photo inspiration
Dream Valley - Anything goes
Sparkles Forum - Remembrance Sunday
Lollipop Crafts - Anything goes

Loving your card Kym she really looks fab with the poppy papers and your sentiment is just perfect!

Thank you for your lovely comments on the DT blogs I really do appreciate your support but it also makes me so sad to think that there is so many people out there who have these problems. I know that it does happen but when you are faced with it it's so totally different!

Also I want to thank you for my Birthday card and I bet you can't beleive this but I didn't open it until my birthday I am just so good! anyway its beautiful and really made my day.

Have a lovely weekend Love & Hugs Chanelle xxx

Beautiful card Kym. I'd not thought of using acrylic paint as an accent - I normally use enamel accents, but the paint gives the same effect and is cheaper, so I won't be replenishing the accents once I've used them! Thanks for sharing that :)

Have a fab weekend

Just lovely!

Lin said...

Kym, I'm no expert on MCS but it sounds like you have a missing dll or something that allows it to communicate with your printer. Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling it? Also have you phoned them, apparently they are very good at sorting out problems!

Now to your stunner of a card! Wow, it's just gorgeous and so, so appropriate for the the time of year.

Thanks for joining us at Dream Valley this time.
