Cutie Pie Challenge – For a Special Friend

Hello, hope you are well?

Today we have a brand new challenge over at the Cutie PieChallenge Blog  and our theme this fortnight is ‘For a Special Friend’. Awwwwww!

This week we are sponsored by the wonderful CraftyRibbons 

and one lucky winner will win a voucher to spend in their gorgeous online store.

So what did I do? Well I recently bought some shaped cards and thought I would use one of those.  I chose a shadow box type card as I really admired the one recently made by Sue Bearhouse that you can see here.  (Considerably superior to mine but I gave it a shot!)

The image is LOTV called Me and My Cat which is available here  and I coloured using my Promarkers and fussy cut her out so that she would sit outside the frame.

I embossed the card with an Embossalicious folder and coloured it with Pan Pastel. The vine dies are Marianne Creatables and the tree is a Spellbinders Die D-Lite.

I made the flowers using an X-Cut punch and accented the whole thing with pearls and a bow.

Pop over to the Cutie Pies blog to see the amazing inspiration created by my teamies and get creating that card for your someone special.

See ya!

Scribbly hugs
Jane xx
