World Card Day Fred She Said Challenge!

Hi all! Still here and getting better day by day, but still to slow for me! It takes me about 3 times as long to create a card as I cannot sit at the table for long, but I'm glad to be able to do it at all. The card above is for inspiration and an invitation for you to enter the World Card Making Day Fred She Said Challenge!
Tracey has a lot of great new digi images to choose from and they all can be colored in many different media; computerized paint programs, Prismacolors, Twinkling H2O's, Copics or whatever else you can come up with! Because the are digi you can layer them, resize them and create unique projects!
In the card above I used the mum from the fall flowers collection and watercolored it with my Tombow markers. It is a gate fold card and by turn up the right hinge the card will open. The designer papers are an elegant mix of wine colored velvet embossed and a faux snakeskin white, and pink crystal bling! And here's a first for me - NO RIBBON! Hope on over to Fred She Said store and pick a digi image or two and enter the challenge!

Очень красивая открытка и изумительная идея с воротами! К сожалению, я не очень сильна в английском и соответственно не очень поняла, что хотел сказать автор про день открыток, но рада была узнать, что такой день есть, потому что на данный момент - это мое любимое хобби - делать открыточки....

Hi all, the above comment is from Malvina (translated correctly I hope)and I am posting the translation so all can read also! Here it is:
Very beautiful card and an amazing idea with a gate! Unfortunately, I'm not very strong in English and therefore did not really understand what the author wanted to say about the day of cards, but was glad to learn that such a day is, because at the moment - it's my favorite hobby - do a postcard ....

For all my visitors and followers who do not speak english there is a box on the sidebar that will translate my blog into your language! And please do not let not knowing the language stop you from commenting or posting a link because I will translate it and post for you!

If you want any other text or page translated you can go to "Google Translate" page and cut and past the desired portion in and choose your languages and the you can read it in your language! So fun!
