Sunday 5 August 2012

All in a row!

It's time for Team A to host the challenge at The Crafty Pad Challenge Blog this week and Helen has chosen the theme 'Show some Metal' - she was inspired by the London 2012 Olympics but I think I just focused on the 'Metal' with my card.

I used The Crafty Pad Designs image - Snowmen and coloured it with my usual combination of ProMarkers and FlexMarkers.  The Christmas Tree and Present embellishments are my metal - they are metal brads.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

We have two great Sponsors this week:

Prize is 3 digi images from their shop


Prize 3 single digi images from the shop 

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

As I am entering my card into a challenge that asks for the inside to be decorated this is a picture that shows the whole of the inside:

Card Recipe:

Papers:  Docrafts - Papermainia Mistletoe Kisses
Card Stock:  Joanna Sheen (discontinued)
Tools:  Martha Stewart - edge punch, Woodware - Corner Punch (inside card)
