Showcase Inspiration

It's time for some inspiration for The Crafty Pad Monthly Showcase Challenge, this is where we challenge you each month to create a project using a CRAFTY PAD IMAGE, you could win 5 Crafty Pad Designs images of your choice.

I've made this card for my Mother in Law's Birthday using the gorgeous Crafty Pad 'Flowers for Mum' image.

I coloured the image with a combination of ProMarkers and FlexMarkers and used some NitWit papers, please see the Card Recipe below for full details of everything I have used.

I have decorated the inside of my card to complement the front.
