Hi Peeps,

I have a special card for you today, one that was published in the May edition of Papers and Pixels.  Boss Lady Zoe was asked to do an article and a few of us MIC girls offered to do a card to accompany the article and this is the card that  I came up with.

The image is Annabelle available in Rubber and Digital from Make It Crafty.

I have coloured Annabelle using Copic Markers.

I have used the manikin from the Make It Crafty Sew It Up chipboard embellishments

A close up of Annabelle.

You will also notice the cogs, these are from the Make It Crafty Gears Galore Chipboard Embellishments, and painted with an olive acrylic paint and my usual dab of snowtex.

You may also notice on the front panel the Make It Crafty Corner Flourishes, again painted with white acrylic paint.

And gripping both sides of the main panels I have used the Fine Swirl vine which is from the Make It Crafty Fine Swirls Chipboard Embellishment pack.

Materials Used:-
Image: Annabelle
Make It Crafty Chipboard Corners
Marianne Design Craftable Envelope CR1211

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:-

Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
Stamp and Create - One for the ladies
Wild Orchid Crafts - Anything Goes
