Dream Valley Challenge #12 - Surprise!

Good Morning everyone, I hope everyone is well today. It's a new challenge at Dream Valley this weekend, and the theme is SURPRISE - we want you to incorporate a surprise into your project such as a hidden thing, a flap or a pop up. You can choose one of these surprises or a different one, it's up to you.

We are sponsored this week by Digis With Attitude, and a lucky winner will receive a gift voucher for their store.

This is my DT card for this week, and I've used one of Digis With Attitude's images, called Goth Tween. She is coloured with Copics, and I also used my copics to colour some embellishments to match the colours in the image - the metal corner is coloured black, the ribbon is coloured blue-violet, the paper flowers are coloured yellow-green and blue-violet, as are the large half-pearls in the flower centres. I added a cross charm to match Goth Tween's earring - it came from my lovely crafting friend Joan, all the way from the US.  I added a sentiment from Digis With Attitude (I cut off part of it and just kept the one word) to finish it off.


Image: Goth Tween by Digis With Attitude; Sentiment also by DWA
Colouring: Copic markers BV00,02,04,08, N2,4,6,8, YG06,63, E000,00,21,11, R81,83
DP: Moulin Rouge by Prima
Metal corner: Wild Orchid Crafts

Now for the surprise bit....it looks like a card, but when you open it up it's actually a wallet and contains some stamped images, so in fact it's a little gift. 


Hope you like my project....don't forget to check out my teamies' cards to get some more ideas, they have made some fab surprises.

Have a good weekend and see you all soon.
