I'll be there...

Hello everybody!!

Before I show you the card I made let me begin with telling you that I did a post earlier today about the release of the gorgeous Enchanted Lily stamps by Pink Cat Studio and a last sneak peek card, so scroll down for that one!! Then there is something else. Some of you may have noticed that I have been skipping two Sketch Saturday's. The reasons for my abscence had partly to do with Dyanne's health (but don't worry she is fine now) and have been partly very personal. I have explained the situation to Jo and the other girls from the Design Team and they really are next to extremely talented the nicest bunch of girls on the blog :). I hope to be back this Saturday but I did want to tell me dear friends that I truly appreciate them and their support... you are the best!

Anyway, I did actually start to do a card with this weeks sketch by Jo. I don't know if you've seen it but if you haven't... here it is:

I wanted to use my brand new Whiff of Joy Medieval stamps (love them) and thought the knight would work perfect for a card to tell somebody I'd be there for her when she needs me. I stamped my stamps up and coloured and cut the image but then something went wrong and in the end... my card is nothing like Jo's sketch. Here it is:

It has a rectangle... but that's about it. The black and grey rectangle with the images on them are mounted on a transparancy. Here is a close up of the knight and the dragon:

They are mounted with foam cubes and some parts have been extra mounted with foam cubes to give extra dimension but I don't know if that shows. When you lift the transparancy you have this inside:

The orange square is to write on and is completely covert when the transparancy is down. The papers are Basic Grey Ambrosia.

Hope you like this card even though it has nothing to do with Jo's sketch. I'll do better this Saturday I promiss!!

Have a great Monday and don't forget to check out my other post of today with the Enchanted Lily Release by Pink Cat Studio!
