Penny's challenge 369


This is my design card for Penny's challenge 369 - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting by the rest of the team and we hope you will join in our 'anything goes' challenge.

For my card I used A Day for Daisies lady hat feathers, they are one of the sponsors of the challenge. The very lightly checked piece of background card is an unknown piece, on to which I put a piece of Hot off the press paper pizzazz (a paper pad that I bought years ago and still comes in handy). I coloured the image with spectrum noir and copic pens, die cutting with one of the Spellbinder's marvelous squares, matting on to a lace paper panel from the Papermania midnight blush collection. The silver glittered strips with gems were from The Works and the flowers from Hobbycraft.
