Princess Oceana Joy Fold

The challenge this week at Michelle Perkett Studio is to make a Joy Fold card. This is my last project as a DT member for Michelle's group.  I have soooo loved being on the DT.  Work commitments have meant that I don't have much creating time these days and I like to give my best when I make a commitment and don't like to always be scraping in at the last minute, which is how it's been for the last couple of months now :(  I LOVE Michelle's art work and will still be an active member of her group...and enter the challenges as I can.

Thank you so much Michelle for inviting me to join your DT.  My crafting has grown in ways I would never have thought of. It's been so rewarding being on the DT and such a privilege to work with you (well, it's been more like playing really lol!)  Keep those gorgeous images coming :)

Anyhow...on to my project...this is the card I made:

This is a clean & simple card...a style I like :)  Image is Princess Oceana from Michelle Perkett's Etsy shop. She has been printed onto Express Graphx blending card and coloured with Copics then highlighted with glaze and glitter pens. I used embossing powder on the pearls. The base card is CM CS from my stash, the bubble panel is SU Glossy White CS embossed with the Spots & Dots Cuttlebug folder and brayered with SU Baja Breeze ink. Patterned DP is Kaiser from the Airy Fairy collection. I've had the little plastic starfish for years and thought it would finish the card of nicely...I added some glitter to it before adhering to the circle :)

I really like Joy Fold cards...and there are so many varieties...so come along and join in the challenge this week and show us your gorgeous Joy Fold card creations :)

Lynne, this is so beautiful. It took my breath away :D Love all the blue colors. I have yet to color this image but seeing yours makes me want to. My new job has barely left me time to meet my DT responsibilities. I so miss the MPS challenges.

Hi Lynne! what a beautiful card!! Very simple indeed but very, very beautiful!
First, I love the colors you chose, the image is gorgeous in blue. Your coloring of the face is amazing, I like the shade of pink you used for her lips. The papers go great together and that starfish is a beautiful accent, it adds dimension to the card without changing the simplicity of the scketch. Love this one too!!!
It was great you were part of Michelle´s DT, you are so talented and have a very creative mind. I´m so happy I got to know you more!! Lots of hugs!!
