"Use something you either: a.) found that you forgot you had or b.) were going to throw OUT but decided to use it for this challenge."
This was a fairly easy challenge for me as my DH spent some of this week sorting out bits and pieces that were lying around our living room, and this included quite a bit of crafting stuff. So i went through the box he'd given me and found the following items..
Pale pink card blank
Die cut Birthday Sentiment
3 Die cut Hearts
A small piece of pink and green striped ribbon.
These all looked quite good together, so instead of binning them, i used them for my card. I played around with the diecuts until i was happy with the layout i came up with, i then stuck them to the card blank with some foam pads. I then added the ribbon, tied a neatish knot and trimmed the ends.
I then chose my main image; yep a completely back to front card for me, as i usually know which image i'm going to use before anything else. I had a look through my TGF Digital Images on my pc and came across Audrey;I hadn't had a chance to print her out until now, and decided that she would look great on this card.
I printed Audrey out, and coloured her with promarkers and prismacolour pencils. I trimmed the image to fit the card, and added a litte pricking to two of the corners. I then stuck Audrey to the card, using foam pads to give her some height and dimension.
I resisted the temptation to add anything else to the card, afterall Audrey doesn't seem like a pearls or flowers type of girl.
