From The Heart

Hello blog friends,

Today I am posting my guest designer card for the new challenge at Twisted Tuesdays. I won a challenge at Twisted Tuesdays a few weeks ago and was invited by Melina to do a card for the challenge  “Don’t Go Near the Edge!”  It’s all in the name already but to explain further : other than your base paper/card stock, don’t let anything else on  your project get very close to the outside edges. So that means no  ribbon going all the way to the edge or border strips, photos or images, etc. Keep everything clustered in the middle. And then the twist : Use dictionary, old book or script paper on your creation. You must include the challenge and the twist in your creation.

I really have fun to create this card because usually I go over the edge of the card with my lace , flowers or  sentiment. I first cut a square from old book paper as guide to cluster the image and embellishments in the middle. The chipboard image is from Faye Whittaker and it fits perfectly in a little resin frame. I added a Prima flower and die cut leaves and flourishes. The sentiment and banner die cut is from Marianne Design Collectables. Thank you Melina for the opportunity to join the talented Twisted Tuesday Design Team for this challenge.

    Liewe Amelia

    Shoe, dit is darem baie mooi gedoen, ek hou van jou kleur en die pragtige prentjie
    van die twee kindertjies. Die roos en ag al alles op jou kaartjie wat jy gebruik het is so mooi gedoen.

    Lekker dag
    Carina

    Joe, Amelia, toe ek so lees wat die vereistes vir die kaartjie is, toe dog ek dis nogal ‘n tawwe een, maar jy het uitstekend gedoen!! Daai blom is eenvoudig net te asemrowend en ek benodig definitief (dringend!!) daai dies wat jy gebruik het vir die blare!!! Die raampie om die skattige prentjie is pragtig!! Dis een van my gunstelinge van jou!! Regtig pragtig gedoen!!
    Baie groete en ‘n heerlike middag!!
