Purple and Red

Today is the first day of winter and we have started the day off with heavy rain.  Mind you that is kind of to be expected when it has rained fairly consistently over the past three weeks!  A good day for doing things inside in the warm.

World's Best Dad

https://carlinskaartenparadijs.blogspot.com/2019/05/challenge-10-mei.html

I am not entirely sure of the products that I used in this card as I completed it a few weeks ago.  I think that the paper may be from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  The white piece is embossed using an embossing folder.  The image is from Beccy's Place and is coloured with copic markers.  I added some twine across the embossed piece.

Thank You

When I went to save this card, I noticed that there was no card saved for either February or April.  I had actually finished them but hadn't got further than that.  So, this is this months one and I will upload the other two shortly.



I followed a tutorial at Beccy's Place for a Dutch Fold Card.  I also used a digital paper from Beccy's Place that had two of the three colours in this month's challenge.  The image is from Beccy's Place and is coloured with copic markers.  I added a sentiment from Beccy's Place and also some little flowers (which I made more blue with my copic marker).
