Born to Shop

It's time for a new challenge at Crafting for all Seasons and our challenge for you this time is 'Dies and Punches', we all love to use our dies and punches so it's a nice easy one for you.

We are sponsored by Kenny K and as I wanted to make a card for a friend of mine I used an image that I already had for my card.

I have coloured my image with ProMarkers (I got my inspiration from a card I found on google, but I can't find it again to give the person credit) and made my own Card Candy by punching out some small circles and giving them a coat of 3D Crystal Lacquer - it seems that I can't make a card without it these days!  I pleated some seam binding rather than adding a bow, I felt it went better with this image.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I have decorated the inside of my card to complement the front using the same papers and layout as the front.

Card Recipe:

Image:   Kenny K - Madison Attitude
Papers:  BoBunny - Gabrielle Collection
Card Stock:  Crafter's Companion - Core'dinations
Tools:  X-cut - Ticket Stubs Die and Scalloped Edge Punch,
Spellbinders - Classic Square Die (inside card)
Embellishments:  flowers and seam binding from stash,
Card Candy made using a small punch and 3D Crystal Lacquer
Sentiment:  LOTV

We are sponsored by Kenny K

Prize: 5 digital images
