Kraftyhands Good News

I hope you all managed to see the Kraftyhands shows on Create and Craft on Tuesday for the launch of the amazing Vintage Treasures CD. I'm pleased to say that the shows were so popular that Mike and Ian will be back on Create and Craft today, Thursday 21st February at 11am and 5pm. Make sure you tune in for more fantastic demos and another look at all the wonderful Kraftyhands items for sale.
Have you heard about the Kraftyhands Challenge Blog? Our theme this month is "Spring Colours - Yellow, Green and Orange".
One of the other featured CDs on Create and Craft is the Vintage Chic Boutique double CD which I have used to make this card for your inspiration. It's also available from the Kraftyhands website.

I made a stepper card and covered the front panels with a yellow Damask paper. I cut out the layered birdcage topper and matted it onto one of the outer topper shapes in green lattice and fixed them to front of the card.

The sentiment was printed onto another one of the outer toppers that I had resized on the computer and I inked the edge for definition. The ribbon is from the Beautiful Bows sheet on the CD. I used Marianne dies for the fencing, birds and birdhouse.
There is so much choice on this double CD including decoupage, easel cards, inserts, pyramid toppers, templates and projects as well as a wealth of gorgeous images and papers.

There is a £20 voucher to spend on the Kraftyhands website for the lucky challenge winner and blinkies for the top three. A full list of the challenge rules can be found on the Kraftyhands Challenge blog. Don't forget that February is a short month,  so don't get caught out.
