I got my amazing digi from Smeared Ink! I coloured it with two tones of blue ProMarkers. I was very lucky because Santa brought me a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas so I created a bendy card template and cut it out to create my card blank. I then used a scalpel to follow the bendy lines to cut my patterned paper. My lovely neice made me some homemade sugar scrub so I reused the pheasants feathers from there. Finally I added some gems at the top and a perfect sentiment.

My new things for this project are:
  1. A new fold
  2. Using my cameo to create the card blank
  3. A new image from somewhere I hadn't heard of
  4. Using feathers 
  5. A brand new paper pad

Paper - Venetian paper pad from Craftwork Cards
Embellishments - Three blue gemstones & recycled feathers
Sentiment - found on Pinterest & typed by me

Simply Create Too #100 Its Party Time

I created this card for the new challenge over at Simply Create Too where our theme is "It's party time!" which runs from the 8th-22nd Jan. I loved making this card as I created my own card blank by cutting down some foiled card stock to 6x6 then mounting my image on corresponding pink mirror board. Finally I used my new Cameo to cut out the sentiment and added some stickles glitter and gems.

Paper - Hunkydory
Embellishments - gemstones &gold stickles
