Crafty Cardmakers Challenge # 21

The brief for the latest challange at Crafty Cardmakers is to decorate the inside of the card as well as the outside. I have to admit this is something I don't normally do as I don't have much time for crafting due to work commitments, but it does make a card seem more finished and special.

The image is a rubber stamp from Wild Rose Studio. I have coloured it in using Promarkers and used paper piecing for the dress and scarf. This card is for my Sister in law's birthday on and I have personalised the hair colouring to match hers. I think this is a great image for doing that. I have also coloured the wine rose to suit her favourite tipple.

The papers are from Docrafts Rose Garden pad which also has die cut sentiments which I have used both inside and out. The blossoms are layers of cherry blossoms and assorted mulberry flowers which I have coloured with Promarkers and added glitter.

The inside of the card has been decorated with matching paper, more rubber stamping which are images which my friend Sarn gave to me (thankyou sweetie xxx) and a couple of sentiments. my SIL loves clothes and especially shoes so it was great to make her a really pretty card incorporating all the things she likes.

I'm going on holiday on Friday 21st so will be taking a look at the cards submitted for this challenge when I get back. I'm looking forward to seeing all the beautiful entries and I hope you enjoy decorating the inside of your cards just as much as the outside.
