The Sheik

Good morning all!
The card I have to share with you today is the last of the samples I made for
the launch of the La Pashe
Wrinklies at the Movies CD Rom the other week!

The movie is The Sheik!
The card is an 8"x8" base.
The paper is from the CD also.
I cut out the decoupage & layered up using pinflair glue
The matted on to some white card stock
I felt I had to give them a little privacy, so I added some sheer fabric
drapes to my simple card design. I embellished with a few gems here & there,
a couple of little ribbon tie backs and that was pretty much that!
The designs are so great, they really just stand alone & you don't need much
in the way of fancy equipment to make great cards!
I took the photo then realised that a little of the frayed fabric edge had escaped as I
stuck it down. I used a heat source to seal the edge & stop it fraying any further.
Thanks for stopping by, I do hope you like my card.

Football Crazy!

Good Morning everyone! 
It's Monday once again & time for this weeks challenge over at
Eureka Stamps, where the theme is

The cute little image I have used is
(It gets a bit confusing, as we call Soccer football in the UK! Lol)

I used a 6"x6" square base in grass green.
The papers are by Papermania & I've had them forever.
I coloured the image with my promarkers, then cut out 
with an X-cut square die. 
I inked around the edges with a Colour Q 
liquid chalk ink pad, while the image was still in the die.
The sentiment was printed, trimmed & then inked.
The photo corners are from a Sports themed scrapbooking set 
that I found in a bargain bin at a craft show.
 I do love a bargain, don't you?
The die cut trophy is from a blog candy that I won years ago.
The little die cut fishtail was in my scrapbox,. 
Thanks so much for popping in today, I hope you like my card &
I hope you can play along with this weeks challenge!
