Guest Design Team make for Not Just Cards Challenge Blog...

Well Hello Again,

Another post from me today and another invite to be Guest Designer!  This time for Not Just Cards Challenge

I adore this challenge blog and have been adding my designs to their challenges since they first started :D  As always, the theme is Anything Goes with the fabulous sponsor....Aurora Wings Digital Stamps, and I am a massive fan so jumped at the chance to use one of Mitzi's images.

So here's my make....

Isn't she just awesome!

Here's what I used to make it:
Image: Marie-nyantoinette from Aurara Wings
Coloured: with my Graph'it Marker pens using the gorgeous aqua's, 7210, 7220, 7240, 7260
Backing papers: Rose Cottage Designs Elements pack 2 by Michele R Designs
Embellies: lace from my stash coloured with 7210 Graph'it marker pen, ribbon, pearl slider and bling - check out That Craft Place for a ton of funky embellies

Here's how:
I used the tags from the elements paper pack to create the background, hanging them over the edge of the card base so I could add ribbon and lace to the tags and create movement.  The insert was made by laying tickets from the element pack in a square to give the illusion of a base and leaving room to write the greetings.  The main image is double layered on white card stock from my stash as I think it gives a great framing effect that is more subtle and allows the image to pop.

Here's the close ups:

So I need to say a big thank you to the team at Not Just Cards Challenge Blog for inviting me to be Guest Designer for this times challenge and please pop over to the main blog to see what the Design Team have been up to and join me in the challenge :D
