Friday Sketchers # 47, ABC 'i for inside' to decorate the inside of your card/project and Cute card Thursday # 55 ' Marshmallows and Chocolate'. I've used a normal 6 inch by 4 inch card for this creation only to square it off using my bone folder as you will see below. Papers are my newest present and the first time I've tried Basic Grey ' sultry' 6 x 6 pad. Gorgeous design on this one to go with my pink base, punched swirls out of mirri board and made them fit in the corner as for sketch ( I don't have any swirl dies yet so i improvised), so sweet image is from Pink Gem 'fairy mimi', w/coloured with my Koi's and pink micro fine glitter to her wings, scallop is handcut and doodled, text is a foam stamp from Tesco's and I love the swirly font on it, it's heat embossed with 'copper' from Personal Impressions, gems added and on to the 'inside'...

...I've used the surplus of the folded card to make a little wallet to hold gift voucher or pics or even image stamps, co-ordinated with the BG papers but before I glued the edges down, I tied some co-ordinating thread and put a charm through one and a gem on the other, so now they will stay in place and that is my inside, nothing extravagant as you may notice I don't do insides at all, so this was the best I could think of. Hope this marshmallow and chocolate is to your delight... all the chocolates are almost gone in my household. Have a fabulous Easter Bank Holiday!
