There is a great sketch on the Basic Grey Challenge blog this week. This is another 'thank-you' card but without a sentiment on the card! I was going to put it on the bottom right hand corner but couldn't decide whether it looked better with it or without so I left it off! I've coloured the very sweet Amelia (designed by Chris Dark) with distress inks and watercolour pencils and I used glitter pens for the bows in her hair and her flower.
The paper is all BG Urban Prairie. The horizontal strips are pleated to add a bit of dimension. I scored each one at 2cm, 3cm, 5cm & 6cm and then folded to create the pleats. The ribbon is then threaded through one of the pleats. I als paper pierced around the edge of the card but it doesn't really show on the picture.
Because it is a thank-you card I've left plenty of space to write on the inside. I've used a Cuttlebug corner flourish again - its my favourite embellishment at the moment!
