Inside and Out

Tis the amazing Gillian's turn to dare this week :)...

'Hi everyone Gillian here, and it's my turn to dare you all this week

I dare you to take the design of your card to the inside as well as the outside.

Add a little finishing touch to match the theme on the outside,
or Surprise the receiver with a flap, foldout, decorated journal block to write on,
or one of those pop-out delights....
It really adds so much to a card when there is attention to detail on the inside
as well as the outside. I know some of you are finished your Christmas cards already
so this week it's Any theme, Christmas or not
But make the inside count too :)'

I made a criss cross card so you can see the inside from the front too :) ...

I used;

Pink Petticoat Papers

MM Tag and Happy Birthday Eyelet - can't really see it as it is way to dark to take piccies today...

Screw Brad

Creative Impressions Hanger

Prima Flowers

and lots of inking and a little bit of doodling :)

I love the way your cards always look like you threw things at them and they just worked beautifully. I know of course it wasn't that easy at all.
