Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - DT Card

Hello everyone. Its saturday again and another challenge at this weeks Secret Crafter. The theme for this week is a "Shaped Card" and has been set by the big boss Wendy. Dont do alot of shaped cards to be honest so had to have a long hard think of what I could possibly do. Was considering a scallop card with my nesties but thats pretty popular right now so as I've not used my screen cards for a while, though this a perfect excuse. All the papers and the stamp are from Bearly Mine Designs. I believe the stamps are now in single figures so you'll need to be quick, they are well worth having in your collection. These ickle elves are adorable. I coloured mine with Copics and a white inksenntials pen. My card may look a strange shape, but that is because I have actually made a bookmark and using sticky fixures added to the front of the card. If you click on the piccie you can see a bigger image, and read what I have wrote. Made it up, so dont laugh LOL

Added lots of Jewels, Liquid Pearls and Die Cuts on this, wanted a bookmark with dimension. Have also added a glaze over area's of the image but I dont think the camera has picked this up very well. 

On a sad note, 2 of the DT's have had to step down so we say hello to Gina, and now have a vacancy for another DT. Please look on the challenge blog for more details if you are interested and also see what the rest of the DT have done, amazing just how many shapes there are.

You can also get details of the paper disc and stamps from HERE.

Also like to thank peeps for the birthday cards I have received so far. Obviously I cant name names atm, but am very grateful and will say a proper thanks when I've steamed in and opened them. Only 5 days to go!!!! 

Have a lovely weekend, no plans for me except crafting and blog hopping.

Thanks for looking......

oh Claire what a wonderful idea for a bookmark, I never would have thought of it. I think I might make some for the grandkids, think they would love little Egbert on it as they are really into reading, so thank you for the idea, and love everything about it.
