TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS {GDT My Besties Norway}

{GDT My Besties Norway}

What a lovely surprise when I was a Guest Designer Winner over at My Besties Norge . The theme for their current challenge no.21 is BACK TO SCHOOL. 

I used this cute big eyed girl on her way to school and you can purchase her here.  

So with no further ado, here is my creation, a centre step design (once again).  I tried to use only earthy tones and coloured her with my Copics. The sentiment was coloured with dry chalks and is from CREATE WITH TLC.  The flowers were created with a new teabag folding technique.  Most of the design papers are from FabScraps.

So hop on over to MY BESTIES NORGE and have a look at me featuring as guest designer as well as their Design Team's gorgeous creations, and oh yes, don't forget to enter the challenge.

  8. Hi Desire,

    Fabulous card you have created. I am afraid I don't like the image but only because of the eyes, I hate big eyes on images, I think they look creepy lol! So sorry! Otherwise the card is great.
