Making Best Use!

For Carol's Fun Sketch, I managed to use some left over papers that I had on the table - in fact I do like the backing papers but must resist the temptation to use them on everything! This is such a great sketch and I have a feeling I'll be using this again in the future!

The backing papers are from Candy Doodles, which I printed onto hammered white card, shaped the edges and then lightly inked in black. The satin ribbon is from my stash.

The Jolly Nation decoupage image is a fairly recent purchase and because I am a right miser, I thought that I'd be able to use all the layers to actually make two cards, so this is the first of two (actually, the first of 4 as I bought two sheets!) I've added some seed beads to look like bubbles.

It's actually a bit more punchier in real life - the light was a bit rubbish early this morning. I did curse a little when cutting the images out - I'm totally spoilt by Freddies Friends!
