Papertake - Ribbon/Pearls

Delightful Challenges - Celebration (Birthday)

One Stop Crafts (115) - More Than One Fold (Gatefold Card)
Stamp With Fun (95) - Blue/Brown

I have made a gatefold card for a change and have used one of my new 'Simply Adorable' digi stamps. I think these are so gorgeous I couldn't resist them and they are so easy to colour as the shading has been done for you. I started by covering the inside and outside of the card with coordinating blue papers. I then coloured the image with Promarkers and used green chalk for the background. I then layered this onto a Nestie. The square panel behind has been layered with an embossed green panel to which I have added the image using foam pads. A few brown pearls in the corners finishes it off. I stamped and layered a small sentiment adding another pearl. I made two ribbon bows and layered them to finish the card. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
