I must admit, I struggled a bit with my card this week. I think it is because I couldn't enlarge my image any more without it all going extremely fuzzy.
Anyway, I persevered and I am quite happy with the result:
I used an ink duster and dusty concord distress ink to colour the whole of the image. I then coloured the border with a promarker and picked out bits of the image with a silver gel pen.
To create my background, I used some silver metallic card and wrapped it top and bottom with some purple ribbon. I then wrapped this with some different, narrower purple ribbon.
To finish, I added three clear gems to the bottom right hand corner and three snowflakes to the top left of the image.
Anyway, despite my reservations, I don't think that it has turned out too bad. Why don't you enter yourself and show me how it's done?
