That's Krafty Thursday, on a Monday

As I mentioned in my previous post, Jeanie has decided to open up her That's Krafty Thursday as a challenge. No, there's no big grand prize to be won, but it's fun and you can get a badge for best card if you enter.

I decided to play along, and although I do not have true kraft paper, I used something that looks very similar. Hopefully no-one can tell, lol (and don't read this post). This card is going to my niece for her 10th Birthday, her favourite colours are lime green and blue, but this was the closest I could get. Hopefully she still likes it.

The image I chose is from Whipper Snapper, and it's called Turtle with Frog. Aren't they just the pair. I think they're adorable. I got it with the many other images sent to me by Jeanie, and I thought it made sense to use one of them for her very own challenge.

The image was coloured with my prismacolor pencils and blended with sansador (gamsol). I then cut it with a nestie die and layered it on a nestie scalloped mat. I also added some glamour dust with my quickie glue pen, and the sentiment is from Stamping Bella. Oops nearly forgot, the little fence border was done with my Martha Stewart fence border punch.

We have a public holiday tomorrow and I'm so pleased cause I want to start working on my mom's birthday invitations. I have lots of time still to make them, but I know myself all too well. I always leave things till the last minute then I make a mess or don't do it at all.

That's it from me for today, hope you will all try and join in the That's Krafty Thursday challenge, you have till Wednesday evening to submit your entry. Lots of time!

SUPER CUTE Meahni!! I LOVE the look of the cut corners on the image with the scalloped Nestie behind. It looks like little circles on each corner. Oh, and the curled sentiment is adorable! Thank you for participating in my That's Krafty Thursday challenge.
