Crafting Musketeers Challenge #11

Good Morning Peeps,

Yes Im late again, by a day.... I was very busy yesterday for most of the day as I had an urge (lol) to play Monopoly!!! After playing a new version that you buy companies (as in Samsung, McDonalds, EA Sports, etc and the playing pieces are McDonalds fries, the Universal Studios symbol with a film clapperboard on top, a posh car & a motorbike to name a few) we then went onto the original game  (which I won with my highest ever total of £8000+ and loads of properties inc Mayfair & Park Lane with 3 houses on each)  then another quicker timed game that we agreed to finish at daughters boyfriend won that. After playing games for over 9 hours I was ready to sleep!!!  I did promise to my daughter that we would play again ever 2nd Sunday afternoon... ;0 Nothing better than making your children smile ;0

The time is here for my project/creation for this months halfway reminder for my other Design Team membership, The Crafting Musketeers Blog Challenge number 11.
The theme this month is Art Deco and we are very special to be sponsored by Debbie Moore Designs, and you could win these 2 fabulous cds from us if you are chosen as the winning entry.

Hop over to the challenge blog:  Crafting Musketeers  and after reading our rules for all entries get your creation made and entered via the link on our blog.

This is my creation for this challenge, using a free download from Debbie Moores newsletter (which I no longer receive so I dont know if she still offers them). The template I used for the shape is also a free download from her website.

I didnt have to colour the image topper as it came pre-coloured, but I did go over some areas, jewellery, feathers, roses. the "squareish" designs on the dress, the headband with a Sakura Gelly Roll pen in the glitter effect of "Clear Star" to give an added extra "something" to the card. The pale green grosgrain ribbon "flower" is very simple to make, just fold back the ribbon on itself while going round holding it between my thumb & a finger. 
Please contact me if you wish to see picture instructions. 
Enjoy creating!!!


  1. This is stunning! Also want to tell you I adore the teddy bear you have as your main photo...sooo cute!

    1. Thank you so much Catz,
      To be honest I dont really like this card but I had to go along with it as I ran out of time to get it done... As for Tatty Ted, that was my eldest daughters birthday card last year, from a papercrafting kit that was released on C&C tv a couple of years ago, & the base card is from Craftworks Cards if I remember right...
      I love that card & photo, its just perfect!!
      {{{hugs}}} for commenting, I appreciate it very much

  2. That is a fabulous card Marg, and Monopoly, well, we used to play for hours years ago! Now we play the Wallace and Grommit sheep smuggling game, normally when my son and DIL come to stay!
