NEWS and challenge time over at LEJ Designs.....

hello everyone wow what a wet and miserable morning it is today. its a good job i have some news (good for me and im sure some of you will be happy for me)

the other day i received a message on facebook asking if i wanted to be part of the DT for LEJ designs so after thinking about it for the whole of 2 seconds i jumped at the chance to work with the wonderful DT members.

the theme this week is magical, mystical or mysterious. so i hope you can pop along  to LEJ designs and check out the fantastic work done by all the over lovely DT members and hopefull see some of your lovely creations.

there is not only one but two prizes up for grabs this week firstly the first randomly drawn name will receive 3 digis of there choice from LEJ designs shop and the second name drawn will receive £5 worth of goodies of there choice from crafty emblies store.

so here is my first card i made for them...... 

so i decided to make a tri fold card and went with 'the wonderful life of cinders' the card is made of of orange paper and the colourful striped paper (both from stash) i decided to write my sentiment on a tag and added it using the same orange ribbon as what ties the card together.

on the first side of the card i have used cinders in her dirty rags cleaning. i coloured the image using promarkers cutting round her leaving as small border then placing her on that stripy paper. i then added a few leaves around her feet that she has yet still to sweep!

the middle panel i added the sentiment 'spread your wings and let the fairy in you fly' i know cinders hasn't got wings but i think it was appropriate for the next image of cinders as if you believe you are better then a 'scrubber' then you most defiantly  are.

and here is cinders in her princess dress again i coloured her using promarkers making her hair more brighter. again i cut around her leaving the small border and placing on the stripy backing paper. i then added 2 blue and a pink flower embellishment.

this is the full view of the card and you can see the leaves better on this.
