Organza Tizzy Dreams

Happy Monday everyone.  I am writing this post way ahead of time, because by the time this challenge goes live, I will hopefully be recovering nicely from my back surgery! 

For this fortnight, Crafty Boots Challenges would like to see your projects using MATERIAL.

Here is mine...

Side view for beter view of candi and insert
The digital image is from the Tumble Ted and Tizzy CD, available at Cupcake Crafting.  I colored her using Flex Markers and used a white detail pen to accent her pearls. I used a lovely floral pattern paper, matted with dark purple paper and put them on an 'On the Edge' Card blank from Crafty Boots..  I can't remember where I got the paper floral from, so apologies for the missing 'shout out'.  I wrapped some organza around the square card layers, leaving it loose so I could bunch it up and tie it with a purple organza bow.

I used the same floral patterned paper on the card insert with a square of white paper in the middle, matted with purple, for the sender to write on. 

I thought it needed a little something more, so I added some white and pale blue card candi, which I also got from the Crafty Boots Shop.

I seem to be going through a purple phase, which is odd because my favorite color is green!  Anyway.  I hope you like the card and I hope you will pop over to the Crafty Boots Challenges blog to check out the creations from the rest of the design team and link up your entries!  I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

I would also like to enter this card into the challenge at: Forever Friends Fortnightly Challenge - Anything Goes & Take care and I hope you can visit again soon.

xx Denise

Ha ha, well my favourite colour is purple and I can see no wrong in any purple card!

I love the swirly mist effect your organza has created. Your card looks very tactile and I would love to be able to touch it, so I can truly appreciate it's complexity.

I hope the op on your back went well and you are soon up and about (and crafting).
