Diva's by Designs launch there final challenge, so lets go out on a high....

Hello Again,

It's a sad day, and not technically my turn to post but both teams decided that on the farewell post for Diva's By Design Challenge blog we would all pull together and support Rebekah and the team to go out with a bang!

We really hope that all of you will join us too, enter the challenge and show Rebekah and the team how you've loved the blog and send it on its way with a smile on its face (if blogs can smile lol)

The theme is Anything Goes, so let your creativity go wild and join our final farewell challenge....

Here's my make:

I was asked to make a card that said 'To my Wife' at Christmas so this was what I came up with :D

Here's what I used:
Image: Pulling Crackers due from Festive Hollybobs by Polkadoodles
Coloured: with my Graph'it marker pens, and printed on 300gsm super smooth card from That Craft Place
Background: DCWV papers I have in my stash, still trying to use some up lol and tags from the same collection
Embellies: perfect pearls, lace, ribbon and resin bird from That Craft Place

Here's how:
Easy one; again I used a 7x7" card base (an 8x8" cut down) to allow hangover elements to add dimension but still allow for it to go in the envelope!
I layered DCWV papers, distressed the edges with the Tim Holz/Ranger distressing tool thingy and layered them random style.
I added the image raised on 3D foam and as I had printed on 300gsm card there is no need to add a matting layer so I chose not too.
I then added matching tags and banners to coordinate with a little added bling and perfect pearls.  Then Voila!

Here's the close ups

Thank you so much for stopping by and please do leave me a comment as I really really appreciate reading them all xx
