My First Card as Guest Designer at D & D!!

Over at Daisy and Dandelion they have a sketch challenge this
week. This is the card I have made for this fab sketch! Why
not hop over there and join in the fun!
For this card I have used the delightful Squeak, well part of
him anyway! he is just popping his head up to say Hi. The letters
I have drawn freehand and cut out. Coloured him with my
Tim Holtz Distressing Ink (Vintage Photo), papers are from
PM simply elegant and K & Co. The circle border is a paper
doily, the zigzag border on top of that, I have made by cutting
thin strips of the same paper and folding (concertina style) then
pulling out around the circle and fixing in place with glue.
I have made the little star the same way and placed a
diamante stone in the middle. Paper flowers are
punched and I have added a piece of hessian, ribbon
and rose bud from stash, also lace and buttons from stash.
I think I have covered everything.
Hope you like him, TFL Sue xx
