Celebrate !

As the patriotic frenzy is whipping up across the UK in anticipation of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations next week, I thought I'd use some of the excellent papers from the Papermania Portobello Road pack for my I Love Promarkers DT card this week.  The challenge is to use a Digi image on your project and our prize this week is sponsored by Digi Doodle Shop

It's often difficult to photograph an easel card, and the lightsource has made the papers on the bottom of the card look much lighter in colour than those on the top/easel section, although IRL they are the same.   I hope this doesn't spoil the effect for you.

Continuing my Jubilee style, I added some bunting and the 'Celebrate' sentiment, although by using this sentiment it does mean the card would work for many occasions.  There is rather a long list of materials and tools used, so rather than do a detailed description of how I created the card as I generally do.  I've noted them all below:

'Birdbath' digi image from Digi Doodle Shop
Papermania 'Portobello Road' 6x6 paper pack
Bunting dies from Whimsy Stamps
Memory Box 'Grass' die
Marianne's dies - fence, trailing ivy, bird
Spellbinders frame die
Cardstock and Sentiment by SU!
Tiny leaf punch by Recollections (from the $1 bin in Michaels)
Picket Fence Distress Stain
Glossy Accents
Bakers' Twine

I did warn you the list was a long one ! 

Hope you've enjoyed today's creation, do pop by the ILPM blog to check out the fabulous work from other DT members.

Thanks for dropping by today, do call back soon as I'll have more projects to share with you.

Well it's just lovely - plainly well worth the long list of materials! That $1 punch was a real bargain and I'm loving your use of twine too
