Joanna Sheen Furry Friends Card

Hello again, only me, back with the second card of today.... as I thought this one did not take too long... although I have had to do other things in between. This one was for this weeks willow sketchie challenge and I also tried to make it a little bit masculine as well hence the blue and brown.

So as you can see back to my comfort zone of a nice plain 8 x 8 square. I used a gold mirri base mat and layered some of the backing paper from the furry friends cd onto it. I printed out a topper and matted it onto gold mirri as the main image. I used brown coredinations embossed in a cuttlebug folder and sanded it then matted onto blue glitter card as the secondary topper. The blue border was punched with a fancy punch and a ribbon stretched across and glued from behind. I found this cute cat charm and threaded it onto the ribbon before I stuck it down. The charm is not stuck down and is free to move along the length of the ribbon.

I layered the elements as per this weeks sketch and added the small blue thanks sentiment to finish... although this card needs an insert at some point.

This was a fairly quick card in essence and because it is not as blingy as the usual ones I think this one does feel quite masculine... love this little charm but have no idea where it came from lol.

Anyway am off to play a little more, feeling a little halloween-ish so expect a scary post at some point this week mwahahahahaha cough cough lol

Till next time, take care
