DT Card for Totally Papercrafts Challenge #183

Hi everyone, and happy Friday. It's been so much cooler here this week. I do love the sunny days and cool nights of late summer.   I'm off to buy some fresh Niagara peaches at the farmers market later this morning....mmm they are so good this time of year.   Perhaps they will find their way into a pie this weekend.


We've a new challenge starting at Totally Papercrafts and our lovely Cathy of (Kraftykookat) would like to see Red/Black plus the option of white.   Our fabulous sponsor this week is one of my favourites "Delicious Doodles".   I've used an adorable image by Teri called "Panda Love".

I've made a gatefold card for a change.  Image was coloured with Copics C9, C7, C5, C3, C1 and a small amount of 100.  I dry embossed the red paper with M-Bossabilities Decorative Fancy Tags Two embossing folder.  I found by placing the folder on top of the BigShot Platform, adding 1 pc. of cardstock for a shim, then placed one acrylic plate on top it worked for me.  I wasn't going to buy the raspberry spacer plate since I am nervous of using my 2nd Grand Calibur after the first one broke.  I keep it only for my GC dies.  The corners were made using an old ProvoCraft corner die and the medallion is SB Lattice die.  Card measures 6x6 in.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
4 Krafty Girlz Challenge #1 - Anything Goes
Addicted to Stamps and More - Anything Goes
Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog - Animals
Make it Monday #156
Crafty Little Fairies Challenge - Cute n Cuddly

Thanks you so much for stopping by. We'd love it if you could play along with us this week - there is a great prize from Delicious Doodles for the lucky winner.
