Layout and a card **Swirlydoos**

Hi everyone, wow this weekend is going by way way too fast. I went away a couple of weeks ago and my girl friend looked after my love bird so I made this little card for her today to thank her, and the layout is for the Round Robin challenge at Swirlydoos. Almost everything on both projects is from Swirlydoos. The layout has lots of punching, I used some gesso with a mask and misting, and lots of layers of goodies on this. The photo is my grandson Johnathan when he was tiny.

I fussy cut from the Bo Bunny Gabrielle papers for this piece, and you can see the distressing on the outside of this layout here.

Below is a couple of close-ups of the chippy and the flower clusters with a butterfly and crystals. The butterfly is from a file at Swirlydoos, just print it and cut it out. I added some stickles to it.

Here are a couple of close up s of the masking that I did with gesso, distress inks and mists, and you can see all the layers framing the photo.

I used my May kit for the little thank you card and added in some Dusty Attic vine pieces and some seam binding for the bow. I like the saying inside I think it is funny and she will love it.

Well that is it for today…tomorrow is reveal day at Sketchabilities and I will have a new layout for that one. I hope that you have a fantastic weekend.  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
