World Card Making Day 2012

Today is World Card Making day and to celebrate Claire at Jellypark is offering a time limited freebie - go to the Jellypark Challenge blog to snag it - and here is what I've made with it!

It comes with a sentiment but I found I didn't have enough room to add it!  I've coloured the image with Promarkers and used one of my fancy X Cut dies to cut it out, adding a dotted fineliner around the edge.

The papers are Samantha Walker - Road Trip and I've added some faux running stitch around the edges of the papers plus some ric rac ribbon, half pearls and a wonderful crotcheted flower from Dottie Red.

The sky went very wrong on the image but I don't think it looks too bad now - sort of blends in with the theme of the papers, a kind of shabby chic sky!

A busy day ahead - Jacob has a cadet kart session then we have to hot foot it to his football match in Accrington, 10am kick off and then both boys have a football party to go to later in the day.......  We've had really heavy rain and hail overnight so I'm not sure if the football match will still be on as the pitch is probably not in the best state!
