Druscilla - Christy Croll with Metallic Flowers - MitC

Good morning one and all....

Gosh the wind, almost hurricane, outside is awful.  Enough for me to not drive to work on top of all else that is going on domestically.  Thank goodness for my card making as it helps to distress me....

I managed to finish another card off this morning with another of Christy Crolls Images - Druscilla merged with Metallic Flowers from MitC coloured with my pencils. I used some purple glitter I have had hanging around however I wish I had stuck with Glamour dust now.. oh well I shall learn from it LOL. I will be entering Tiddlyinks new challenge of Celebration and this fits the bill as it is celebrating a friendship by saying thank you....This is also entered into Top Tip Tuesdays challenge of Anything Goes.

The papers are from Crafts U Print.  As you will see to further contrast the papers I used a corner die to enable the underlayer to show through.  I think it is quite effective....

I did not want to overcrowd this card as the backing papers are pretty enough to not be covered up so I only placed a butterfly from my stash with pearls on it's body in one corner and a flourish with teeny flower gems on it.

The sentiment is once again from Iralamaja on Etsy and the inside of the card is similar to the front minus the image LOL...

I'll be back later and hope you enjoy todays visit.....
