Pinky's Home

is the name of the digital image that I used on today's card. It was a freebie that Elizabeth over at Soft Pencil Designs offered over on Splitcoast Stampers website. By the way, thanks Elizabeth.

I decided to step away from the traditional card fold, and make a gate fold card, which I haven't done in quite awhile. With the help of my handy Scor Pal tool, it is very simple to do. I colored the image with my Stampin Up markers, cut it out and added it to a scalloped square mat that I made with a Spellbinder's Nestibility di-cut. I think you can tell in the photo, that it is attached on the left side of the card, with some foam dimensionals to pop it up just a bit. Some sticky gems from Michael's dress it up a little, and the DSP on both side panels, is from Stampin Up. The border fence at the bottom was made with a Martha Stewart border punch. The card stock used was Stampin Up Whisper White, and Pale Plum. The butterflies at the top were also made with a Martha Stewart punch. I think that sums it up.

My nephew is home visiting from San Diego where he is stationed in the US Navy. I am so proud of him, so I will be back to blogging after the weekend is over.

Until next time...................Blessings, Lisa
