For my card I’ve used the cute Ribbit from Daisy Doodles.He’s been coloured with ProMarkers along with added highlights using white gel pen.I did used Frosted Lace Stickles on the dragonfly’s wings but it doesn’t show too well in the pic.I’ve used a corner punch that I bought a while back but never got round to using to cut the slots in the matted piece for the image along with a corner rounder punch.The ribbon I found in my stash and the sentiment I created myself in  Microsoft Word 2010.

Hatbox of delights

The challenge at Craft Your Passion this week is to use only two designer papers on your project.We have the fabulous Daisy Doodles as our sponsor this week.So head on over to play and check out the rules.Please take a look at the beautiful DT work while you’re there.

For my card I’ve used the beautiful Hatbox from Daisy Doodles.Rather than reach for the usual Promarkers I decided to paper piece the image.Altho’ I did manage to sneak a little in to create a shadow under the box – lol.I curved and shaped the papers and used silicone glue to give dimension.The flower,taken from the image printed onto plain white card,has been coloured with Copic Atyou Spica pens to give a glittery effect.I used my brand new Martha Stewart Cherish Punch Around The Page set for the first time and I LOVE it!!I attached the punched panel to a card base cut at just under 4″,to stop it being seen through the holes,that way I could still add an insert like a regular card – and so that it would stand up!I created a tag using the same Nesties the image is layered onto and tied it on through one of the holes.I found these pearls in my stash and thought they’d be the perfect colour to finish the card.
