Paper Nest Dolls Fancy Folds theme


Hi Ladies

And yes, I'm back again with another card... that's two in one 24 hour period..  some kind of record for me!

Today's card is for the new challenge at Paper Nest Dolls - the theme is Fancy Folds... so here I am with a card using Little Birdie Ellie who is available as a rubber stamp here.  Now for this card, I didn't want to show the bird as it wouldn't have fitted in the die I was using, so I just took the decision not to ink that part of the stamp.

I'm very much into the image doing the talking on my cards at the moment..  so I've kept it CAS.  

I used Copics and Flexmarkers...  the blues are Copic BG70, and Flexmarkers are Dove Grey and Cloud Blue (this is more for my own info when I look back than anyone elses!!  I tend to forget nice colour combos and always wish I'd noted them!)
Grass: Prismacolour pencils
Dies: Memory Box Delicate Vine, Nestie shape
DP: Prima Meadowlark Grace

Hope you like what I've done with this little lady, and that you'll pop over to the challenge blog and join in. 

I'm not going to waffle on today as I'm sure you've heard enough from me lately!
Big hugs and Happy Crafting..
