A second one for today



I got a phone call late last night from a friend who had forgotten her husband's birthday (!!!) which is tomorrow. Anyway I was going to make a card for the Papertake Weekly Challenge which is a fantastic sketch so I used that to make this card for her. The main backing paper is Papermania which I have had in my craft box for ages. I then used a silver semi-mirror card which I topped with the matching backing paper for the image which is from Joanna Sheens Jane Netley-Mayhew cd. I matted the image onto black card and then onto some gunmetal mirri silk card also from Joanna's shop. I used this for the central strip required for the sketch and also to put the sentiment on. I also cut out the dolphins and some of the sea to 3d the image which doesn't show up that well in the picture. I hope you like my interpretation of the sketch and thank you for calling and for all the wonderful comments you leave. Beryl x

  2. Beryl, this ia good interpretation of the challenge. I certainly like the image and the backing papers as they work so well together. I am sure the lady will think it's wonderful for her husband and it's amazing you've done it in such short notice. Kym
