Things With Wings

Good Morning everyone, and a warm welcome to my blog.

Today sees another new challenge over at The Crafty Pad, and this week the lovely Debbi from the DT has chosen the theme, which is #181:   


Our sponsor this week is the lovely Joanna Sheen with a £10 online voucher.

There is fabby array of creations over at the challenge blog, and not just cards either, so be sure to take a peek at Team B's creations.

I have used the adorable Dilbert the dragon for my card, and if you love him as much as I do, you'll be pleased to know there are several Dilbert images available....just click HERE to see them.

My card is for my nephew who turned 16 on Friday: The sentiment was created on the computer.

I used a digi paper pack from The Crafty Pad Designs to paper-piece Dilbert and for the backing too, a fab set called Mint & Cream Delight (along with one of the papers from another set called Strawberry Sundae Delight.) There are several really versatile digi paper packs availabe, so click HERE to take a look.

I added a panel of Magic-Mesh, with a punched border over the top, and a red grosgrain ribbon over the top of that!! Some card candi dots coloured with Promarkers. I finished by adding some faux stitching in black and white gel pens to the layers.

Finally, I decorated the inside to match (mainly using the leftover pieces of paper.)

We would love for you to join in with our challenge this week, and look forward to visiting your blogs.
Please check back at The Crafty Pad on Thursday to find out the winner and top 5 from our 'interactive' challenge.

Challenges I would like to enter:
Thanks for looking.

Fab card Ali, gorgeous papers.

Regarding the Bearly Mine Designer Extreme CD's, I have loaded all of them onto my laptop in colour sets and no longer have a clue which papers came from which CD I'm afraid, so I can't really help. I would start with the last one if it was me - I always assume that things get better!

Vee Cassidy said...

Hello, your card is beautiful Vee xx

Twinkle Star said...

Dilbert is just fab! Love the colours :)

Hugs, Estelle xx
