A card made from a RAK - well almost!!

I haven't uploaded anything for several days, so thought I would pop this one up as a tribute to Lovely Linda who supplied many of the elements in this card! Thank you Linda.

The silver background is a pie-plate put through the cuttlebug - Linda and I both appreciate re-cycling - the image is also part of the RAK, and I coloured it with chalks, but added a wee bit of sparkling ink on the bonnet edge and to highlight the seams of the jeans, oh, and on the boys hair!

The ribbon is silver - despite how it shows in the photo, and the sentiment, and the edge of the sentiment base, is emobossed in silver.  I finished the card with the five silver brads.

Thanks so much Linda for your generosity with the RAK.  I really enjoyed this image and it was great to pair it with the CB'd foil.

I have been busy making my Christmas cards, and am about halfway through them.... :-)

Thanks for calling by, and I so appreciate knowing you have visited.  Do have a wonderful day.
