Crafts Galore Encore February Challenge

 Hi Crafters,

I'm back again but today I have my Crafts Galore Encore design team inspiration for you.

This challenge is always an ANYTHING GOES theme, so nice and easy to join in.

We are sponsored by Sheepski Designs who are offering 3 digital stamps to the lucky winner from their online store. I have used one of their lovely images for my card today.

I decided to make a split front card. I have taken away a section of the card front and replaced it with some acetate which I had embossed with a Sheena Douglas leaf design embossing folder - hopefully you can see it in the close-up below?

I have coloured this gorgeous 'Blossom' image with Pencils for a change from my Promarkers. I still have a way to go with the technique but I enjoyed using this different medium.

Here is an angled view where you can see both the inside and outside of the whole card.

If you'd like to join in with us you have a whole month to enter a maximum of 3 separate new projects, it doesn't have to be a card. Link back to our challenge blog in your post to make sure you are eligible for the prize from

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Incy Wincy Designs - Valentines +/ In The Garden
Creative Inspirations - February - ATG

See you again soon,
