SRU & Bugaboo

Happy Monday everyone, today is the start of a new 2 week challenge over at Stamps R Us. This time, our theme is 'Just kidding around', cards for children.

Our challenge this time is sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps, who have wonderful images for young or old. The design team were each given an image to use on our cards, so I knew i'd be spoilt for choice :)

I love their Har Repotter collection, so I chose Har Repotter - The Chosen One for my card...

Coloured with promarkers, I then punched the corners and edged it with a glitter gel pen before layering the image onto black cardstock and adding a white brad to each corner.

The zig zag paper is from My Mind's Eye - Stella Rose, 'Gertie' paper pad.

I would love to say that I have cast a spell that automatically makes the greeting slide out, but I didn't go to Hogwarts, so it has to be pulled out by hand using the tab at the side (SU Round Tab punch)
I raised the image with foam pads to create the space for the sentiment, which was also layered on to a piece of black cardstock that was cut into a 'T' shape so that the sentiment cannot be pulled out in its entirety, the top of the T is held in by the foam pads...

The sentiment incidently was a freebie given some time ago by Pollycraft
