Gabbing with the Girls....

Post 7.
Wow! 2  posts in a week, the heat must be getting to me! The same image as the last post but with very different colours. Todays' card, I thought ideal for entering 'Mo's Challenge', and also a darn good card for any girlie girl out there.

 The backing paper is is from Hot Off The Press, it was in a huge paper pad called 'Cardmaker's Floral Ultimate pack',I bought it donkeys years ago from QVC when I was very much new to paper crafting. I love the colours in the paper. It's matted onto some Kraft card then mounted on to a 5 x 7 tent fold card.
The image is coloured with Promarkers. I cut some of the Kraft card using Spellbinders 'Labels 4' the chopped to to make the tab on the side of the image.
The card is embellished with 'Card Candi', I didn't have the right colours, so I just coloured some cream candi with co-ordinating pro markers. The crochet ribbon and blue knotted ribbon add a little texture and detail. The sentiment both inside and outside the card are from Lili of  the valley.
Finally the insert of my card, I had a strip of paper that wasn't quite long enough, so I increased its length by adding some of the backing paper to one end, the insert was then folded and the cut with another spellbinder die. The card and insert had to have faux stitching drawn in to finish, gotta have my faux stitches at the moment!!!
Hope you like.
Happy Crafting.
