Crafty Cardmakers DT card

Over at Crafty Cardmakers our challenge this week is 'Use a Freebie' - something that you got in a magazine or in a download for example. Be sure to tell us where your freebie came from.  The winner for this challenge will receive 2 background paper books by Crafty Individuals which are background papers 1 & 2 with 2 being Christmas. 


My freebie is the fabulous 'Penelope's Party Wagon' that came as a free download from the very talented Mo Manning some time ago. I do love her images but am not on Facebook so very often miss her lovely freebies now. I coloured her with my good old Promarkers, matted and layered her onto card and mounted her onto this lovely shaped sidestepper - do visit my DT buddy Vix if you would like to know where it comes from. I added a frill along the bottom using tissue paper that came in the box with new trainers - never throw anything away me!! Well you never know when you may be able to use it!! This side view shows the mechanics of the card - I do love the shape and the size of this and it is very simple to make.

I am entering this also into the following challenges:~

Charisma Cardz More Than One Fold and
Sarah Hurley's Colouring In Challenge.

  7. A really special-looking card with that style of fold, and a lovely image too. I especially like your frill - I save white tissue paper from all sorts. With Promarkers it can be any colour I want!
