Charisma #43 - Matching Pairs

And my second post for today is to tell you about the new weekly challenge at Charisma Cards! This week we are having fun making a 'Matching Pair', that could be a card and an envelope, or a card and a tag...! We can't wait to see what you all come up with!

Our lovely sponsors this week are...

Lili of the Valley are offering a lucky winner a £10 voucher to spend at their online store! Wow!


And next we have our regular sponsor, Digistamp Boutique! They are offering a generous prize of TEN digi stamps!!

Here's my project this week, I have used this great freebie image I got from Kenny K a while ago, coloured with Promarkers. I've die cut him out with Nellie's rectangle frames, and the edges are inked with Faded Jeans DIs. The papers are by Making Memories, and the little stamp down the border is a tiny energy sports drink bottle, I thought it was quite fun to add it to this card!  The greeting stamps are by Personal Impressions and Dovecraft. The Tag is made from the same paper as the card, and inked aroud the edge with Brushed Corduroy and Peeled Paint DI's.The letters are stamped and the little stars are peel offs.
So what are you waiting for, pay a visit to the Charisma challenge blog to see the inspiration from the very talented DT and get creating your project to be in with the chance of winning one of those FAB prizes!

I would like to enter this project into the following challenges:
