Anything Goes - Looking Chic!

Hi Everyone

It's time for another Challenge over at Scribble and Scrap Challenge Blog

The Theme is Anything Goes and it would be fabulous if you would come over and join in with us in Challenge #42.

My DT Creation this time is a Shutter Card which I have made in advance for one of my Children's Teachers for September when they move classes/schools. (I have several Teacher/Thank You Cards to make)  I have never made a Shutter Card before.  I have always liked them when I have seen them dressed up.  I thought that they were one of these things that looked difficult but was actually easy.  How wrong was I??? lol!  They are as difficult and fiddly as they look and mine is a fairly plain layout.  I must admit I nearly threw it across the room several times but I persevered and I am happy with the outcome.

The Image is one of my absolute favourites.  It is from Penny Johnson and is called Looking Chic.  I stamped it using a memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad and coloured her using ProMarkers.  The Verse is from Circa Designs and the Thank you Teacher is from Stampingallday.  I used Bazzill Blackbird as my Base/Frame Layer and the Patterned Paper is from the Dovecraft Sweet Paris Paper Pack.  I added some Pearl Trim for a bit of Glitz and a Pink Satin Bow to Finish.

I hope you have enjoyed sharing my Card with me.  Please come on over and join in with this fortnights Challenge.  Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you again soon.
