News Flash

Here is a gift card holder I made for the Magnolia Down Under Challenge. The challenge was to use 3 papers, 3 flowers, 2 buttons, and 1 bow. I also will be entering it in the StampsRus Challenge. It calls for distressing. Some other exciting news is I will be taking the Copic Certification Class on March 28th. I am so EXCITED.
If you slide it open you can place a gift card inside. Then when they remove the card it says Happy Birthday. Here it is opened up.
I have used papers from My Mind's Eye. I distressed all the edges and then sewed them on. I used my nestie to cut out the Happy Birthday layers on the inside and I cut out New Flash on my Cricut. I colored Tilda with Copics and attached her with some foam squares. I added two buttons, 3 flowers and 1 bow to qualify for the challenge. Here is a list of the Copic colors I used.
Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, R20 on cheeks
Shoes: E25, E40, E42
Clothes: RV14, RV17, RV19, G20, G21, G24.
Newspaper: C1, C3, C9
Hair: E29, E31, E44

Thanks for stopping by.
