Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

Hi Folks
Welcome and hope you are well on this happy Wednesday.  I love Wednesdays as it marks the halfway point of my working week - only another two days to the weekend.

Wednesday also sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our theme for this week is a nice easy one:
Anything Goes

We have three fab sponsors as well:
Stamping Dragon - prize of 5 digi images of the winners choice
Dr Digi - prize of 2 digi images of the winners choice
Digital Delights - prize of a $5gift voucher to the winner

The design team were lucky enough to be given some images to work with.  I chose this super image called Knitty Nora from Dr Digi for my card.

I coloured the image in using promarkers and mounted onto some red cardstock after lightly inking the edges.  If you look closely you can also see that I added some tiny pearls for her necklace. The papers are actually a christmas collection from Marianne Design called 'Let it Snow'.  But they seemed to fit perfectly with the image.  I actually bought these last year and this is the first time I have used them - naughty me.  The lace across the centre was a bit too white so I just coloured it with a bit of distress ink.  The tape measure ribbon was in my stash and fitted perfectly too.  For embellishments I just added some flowers, pins and a metal corner.  If you look closely you can also see a little scissor charm added to the tag sentiment.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges to upload your entry.  Don't forget to check out the other fab inspiration projects from the talented design team.

What a terrific image, she reminds me of one of my aunties, who was constantly knitting!!! I love those papers, too, it goes to show that 'seasonal' papers can be used all the year round!
