Good Morning All, hope you are all well today. I am feeling a bit better, will be much better when it is the weekend though :) I made this card last night using one of the new images from Doodle Palace which will be released tommorrow. At first I was unsure what to do with it, but then I had the idea to make a Sympathy card. Thank goodness I don't actually have anyone to give this too but I have had occasions where I could have made one and didn't because I was too worried about making it in a rush and not doing the person justice (if that makes any sense at all).
I followed a sketch to make this card but have still kept it simple. I weas umming and aaahing about whether or not to enter it in to a challenge but have decided that as the card isn't actually for any one that it is ok to do so. I hope I have't offended any one in doing so, if I have just let me know and I will happily remove the card.
The sketch I followed was on Mojo Monday, I didn't use the diagonal shape in the middle, i put the cross there instead so hopefully this still counts.
This is the card I made, I have decorated the inside to match with the pearlescent card.
I paper pieced the cross, I have NEVER done this before but I have to say I love the effect it gives. I had tried colouring it with my copics but I just didn't have the correct colours so at 10pm last night i decided that I would give this a try and thank goodness it worked. I ran some of my pearlescent card through my cuttlebug to give it the dotted effect which I love and the papers are K&Co. The sentiment is computer generated then matted on to the pearlescent cardstock. The ribbon was a bargain buy from Ebay, I buy my standard ribbons like this from an Ebay shop in Malaysia, brilliant products and fantastic value.
I hope you like my card. I am entering it in to the Mojo Monday challenge this week.
