Swirls & Pearls

Well I've managed to do another card today - albeit a quick one! I took delivery of some essential craft goodies this morning and one item that really excited me was the piece of card the lovely lady that packed my goodies had popped in the package to stop it squashing! The fact that I can get excited over something, that a little while ago I'd have called rubbish, I blame on you lot - my fellow crafters ;)

I've used a KennyK image that I'd Water Coloured ages ago - whilst in Penrith Crafts back in July actually with Helen & Uma, the day after Samantha's Wedding!

What do think of my FREE card blank then!

As I'd printed the image so big (the bigger the better as far as I'm concerned with KennyK's fantastic digi images!) the card didn't have much room for anything else.

I punched a scalloped edge and used the waste for the opposite side and also the tiny pieces to highlight the scallops.

I then found some ribbon to pick out the colour I'd used for her eyes.

I'd like to enter this card for...
