Photo Inspiration

Good morning all, my second post today!
(If you're looking for my Just Inklined card, it's here!)
It's time to share the DT card I made for
Where the theme for this monh is
Nikki has found this awesome photo to inspire you all!

Sadly, we can't link back to the owner as it was found it via a copyright free image 
search on the internet & when she tried to find it again she couldn't!
If it's your photo or you know who it belongs to do let us know & we'll link it back!

So, on to  my card

I made a little Twisted Easel card using elements from the fantastic CD
Carnival Of Colour
generously provided by this months sponsor for the DT to work with.

Here's another view of the card, just incase you're unfamiliar with the fold. 
Basically, it's a square card, with one side folded over on the diagonal.

I matted two different toppers on to some cardstock & layered with some foam tape
 for a bit of dimension.The printed sentiment is the stop for the easel section.
This was also popped up on some foam tape.
A few little red pearls & a two colour sheer ribbon bow
were the finishing touches.

A final side view to complete the picture!

Show Pony

Good morning all!
It's Thursday & that can mean only one thing!
Tomorrow is Friday! Oh, and it's time for me to post my 
Just Inklined card for this week!
Here it is!

I coloured up the super cute image Show Pony with
 my flexmarkers. Don't you think they just adorable!
When I was a little girl, I would have loved a pony like this! 
I used an A6 Kraft base, added a punched border, some button twine & 
a little button from my stash!

The sentiment was done using Curlz MT  free font.
Thanks for popping in!

Good Morning All, 
It's time for a brand new challenge over at 
where the theme for this fortnight is
Here's my card

I've opted for black & white & used a sponsor silhouete image set
The Audition from Stitchy Bear stamps.  
I printed them all out & made a border using a Martha Stewart punch.
All the while I was making this card, I was singing the Elton John song,
Tiny Dancer, to myself! I do love that song!

Hope you enjoy the music!

I created the sentiment, a well known quotation, in my graphics program.
I cut it out with a Marianne Creatables Die (one of my faves).

I added a few little gems from my stash & a little bit of recycled ribbon
(the sort added to garments to keep them on the hanger)
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you can play along in the challenge.

Fancy Folds

Good morning all, it's time for a brand new challenge over at 
Ohh La La Creations Challenge Blog!
The theme this time is Fancy Folds.
Here's my card!

I used this pyramid decoupage & papers from the gorgeous Shawn Jenkins
CD, available in the shop here.
I used the sketch 
from Completely Christmas as the inspiration for my layout.
I rotated it 90 degrees.
I opted to make a gatefold card, I just love them!
I missed out a couple of layers of the decoupage as I didn't want too much height.

I bought the ribbon Silk Crush ribbon from a sale on Facebook,
isn't it lush? I have it in several colours!
I also added a few littl pearls from my stash.
The pyramge looks a bit wonky in the photo, but it's just camera angles.

You can see the layers in this view!
I also added a little panel with a decorative border inside.
A very quick, simple yet impressive card to make!
Thanks for popping in, I hope you like it!
