The Outlawz -- Twisted Thursday Challenge (TT010815)


Morning everyone!  Today starts a new Twisted Thursday Challenge (TT010815) on The Outlawz; and I'm thrilled to be a guest designer for the challenge. For this week's challenge it's anything goes with an optional twist -- Gate Fold Card. The challenge is being sponsored by Bugaboo Digi Stamps.  Sure hope you join us for this fun challenge!
  
The Bugaboo image is Ava swing. Coloring was done with Copics.  I also decorated the swing and dressed Ava for Valentine's day using digital paper piecing, which is one of my favorite techniques.  I also fussy cut an extra bow and added it to to the image with dimensionals. 

I kept my design very simple.  The gate folded base is unadorned.  To hold the gatefold closed, I created a simple belly band and mounted the image on top with dimensionals.  Easy peasy to make and slides off easily too.

I will also be entering this card in the following challenges:
Catch the Bug Challenge -- January: Anything Goes
Clear It Out Challenge -- Theme: Anything Goes; Stash: Anything Goes (My ribbon has been in my stash forever.)
Try It On Tuesday -- My Favorites Things (digital images/papers/paper-piecing technique; dies, and Copics.)
Top Tip Tuesday -- Keep It Simple Challenge

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Stay warm and have a happy weekend!
