My daughter arrived home this morning at 8am, she had a brilliant time, kept in touch all night and is now in bed exhausted lol. Phew thank goodness, now we have to go through it all again for her own formal/prom on the 30th of this month!
Michele has pushed us again this week at Crafts4Eternity with her brilliant sketch and recipe!
Follow the sketch
Make and aperture card
Doesn't sound so hard but it seemed to take me an age to get it right lol.
I used papers from a mag, the image is a Sarah Kay stamp from Stampavie which I have had for a long long time. The horse is a free colouring page.
I used my nestie to cut the aperture then covered front and back with matching papers and inserting a piece of acetate to create a window to stick my image.

Image - Sarah Kay
Medium - pencils, promarkers, gel pens, glitter
Papers - free with magazine
Embellishments - pink lace, faux stitching, cork letters
This week's prize is a choice of 3 digis from the C4E store!
Thankfully my card seems to fit these challenges:
1. Fab 'n' Funky - what 'eva'
2. creative Inspirations - lace and sparkle
3. Cooking it up with Katie - 3 papers, something clear and song (a horse with no name by America)
4. Oldie But Goodie - my Sarah Kay stamp (new beginnings - new year)
