Part of my Life...

Delicious Doodles provided this image
Aud Sentiments new challenge is an "Anything Goes".
I was playing around with this digital image from the sponsor  - "flipping" the image and changing the size and I came up with this combination that seemed perfect for a male child.  Since there is no need to color this image, a black and white theme seemed to go with the flow!

[Note: specific information on supplies and sources will be found below under “Supplies”.]

  • Made a 5x5" white base card with a top fold.
  • Focal image and sentiment matted on black
  • a 1" square punch used to create all the fishtails
  • A MS punch border punch used on a strip of black [only one punch width]
  • Silver metallic "half- pearls" were added to the border punched area.
  • Inside was completed with a message panel matted in black and a punched sentiment from another MS Border Punch.
