DT card for I love promarkers #370

Wow these weeks are flying past, doesn't seem 2 minutes since I was loading the last post

This week’s theme is Anything Goes with the option of Birthday                                               
Our sponsor is   

The Prize for the lucky winner is
3 digital stamps
 
 
Here is my card for the challenge
 
She nearly didn't get put together as I coloured the image then die cut her & started to make the card, when i'd finished the card she was nowhere to be seen
I hunted for hours knowing she would be somewhere stupid then carried on die cutting some more bits hoping she would turn up, I just happened to look at the back of my cut n boss to see her poking out of the gubbins inside
Armed with tweezers I prized her out to find her all crumpled but luckily only the back was dirty, so out with my iron to flatten her, she only ended up with 2 creases which I couldn't get out so i've put the watermark over 1 & the other is hidden in her belly so don't look to closely
 
I have used the image by The Paper Shelter called  Spring Swing II
My trustee promarkers
Backing papers from a pack given to the workshop girls by Lisa @ Ella's Design to help her destash
A border die on Kraft card which I cut twice & added ribbon in the middle to attach the pieces together
Panel die from my hoard - unknown brand
Lacy die & banner I found in my hoard - unknown brand
A few pearls

  • Now I am even more determined to reduce my hoard as I have so many wooden stamps just sitting in stacked up veg trays unused & too many clear stamps it's taking over - my husband has threatened to get a skip in when I pop my clogs so I have decided to destash anything I really no longer need so I can spend the money wisely on more crafts before I go (plus they really have no idea of the true value of crafting goodies)
