Beautiful sunny Monday it is today! This creation is for Friday Sketchers following a sketch by Beatrix. This was so much fun to do once I got it in my mind what paper I wanted to use :) they're all free downloads which I adore! Unlike paper pads when you only have 1 or 2 of the same, these downloads you can print off as and when you need them. Lovely jubbly!!! The base card is an A4 cut in half lengthways, the stripes are from Shabby Princess Promise and the other flowery one is from Summer time Designs Energy. I raided my kids stash box for a perfect red strip to go through the MS doily lace punch to place underneath the stripey paper which is edged with red inkpad, image is from Pink Gem Designs 'denny dragon', he's so sweet and tending to the pretty flowers, w/coloured with Koi's and I've tried to do an outline in pale blue (i've seen that done on others too but not sure if it's worked), glam dust added, handcut scallop using scissors and the same for gold mirrri scallop and off-set them for a different look, gold cord from stash threaded through the tail part, tied to an epoxy square button from Juliets candy to represent a buckle as I didn't have one in my stash and tied in one loop bow as one end was not long enough to do two loops, flowers from Jeanettes candy, i've added some flat gems from Josey Rose Boutique to finish. Hope you like and thanks for looking and have a great day!
