I’ve used Daisy Girl from Digi Doodle Shop for my card and water coloured her with Distress Inks.I decide to make a kick stand card.Here’s how it works :

I used a Tonic Edgers 5 Punch I picked up for £2.99!I lined it up my Border Punch System to create the continuous pattern.The image is cut out with a Nestie.The papers are some more scrummy Ooh La La for Him by Mind’s Eye – LOVE ’em!I even used one of the labels from the die-cut sheet to stamp the sentiment on to :

The flower on the front was made using the instructions from this Paper Flower Tutorial on Whimsical World of Laura Bird’s blog.I did use a 1″ circle punch for the purpose of this card.It was a little fiddly and it probably didn’t help that this a thin cardstock rather than a paper but as long as you get your folds as accurate and sharp as you can then you shouldn’t have too many problems.Much the same for all paper folding really.I added a gem brad to the centre.This was another bargain.The pack was only £1.99!

At Willow Sketchie Challenge this week we have Anne-Marie hosting and here’s her fabby sketch :

Feel free to add a sentiment and some ribbon wherever you like too.One lucky winner will get a voucher to spend at Willow Designs!

Just a reminder that the SALE continues at Willow Designs.

I’ve actually rotated the sketch for my card.The image is from the Polly Pickleberry CD-rom by Willow Designs.She’s been coloured with ProMarkers and I cut slits either side of  her to thread the ribbon through to give her something to perch on.The cupcake backing paper is from the CD-rom too.I used this lovely embossing folder to add some texture along with the metal corner and flower brads.The sentiment is from a cut out sheet that was a freebie with Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.
