Leap Around the World Blog Hop : Card #4

*Pffewww!* Next stop for me, is with Betty Anne Orr in Ontario Canada!( http://letsgetscraphappy.blogspot.com/ ). Thank you for hosting a blog hop stay-over Betty Anne! Yes, please, I will have a piece of that lovely chocolate cake you baked ;-)

Betty Anne chose this sketch from Let's Scrap for us to play with :

When I saw the sketch, I immediately remembered a paper serviette (napkin) which I have been saving for many many moons for a special card. I thought that there will never come a better opportunity than right now ;-)

Here is what I came up with : (The photos aren't that great, because I took the it underneath the fluorescent light.)

I seperated the serviette's layers so I could use the top layer only and then fixed the serviette onto handmade paper. I love this technique, because the handmade paper adds texture to the serviette. Believe it or not, I got my sewing machine out!

I used foam squares/pop dots to raise the sentiment

The little stars on the chippie was enhanced with 'confetti' stars

And now for the Inside's little surprise! ;-)

Thanks once again Betty Anne, I truly enjoyed creating this card :-)

Beautiful card Alma, I have never seen a card made with a serviette and I love how it turned out. The glittered Enmarc flourish turned out amazing and I love all your sewing. Thank you so much for taking part in my blog hop and good luck in the draw.
