Tuesday Throwdown Challenge - 14 February 2012

Over at the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge the topic this week is "entwined".  When I made my Polka Doodles card yesterday using the Polka Doodles CD Pretty Sweet there were two different sized digital images so I coloured in the smaller image with the same colours and have made her into an A6 card for the Craft for Life Appeal.  All the papers used are from my scraps box and the edges have been distressed by tearing them with an X-cut tearing ruled.  I was given the gold effect ribbon which feels metallic and decided to stitch through it my twine.  It sounds a good idea but I got bog-eyed after a while going "up and down"!!!  I put through a scrap of dog-eared mirri card through an embossing folder.  It's amazing how doing this can bring a piece of card to life again.  I have coloured the image with Promarkers and cut her out so she's sitting across the card.  The card has been finished off with some gems and a Craftwork cards sentiment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Pretty card! Great idea to add the twine and ribbon like that - even if it was a pain to do! :-)
