Hooray for you!

I guess I was on a roll, and then it stopped a bit.... maybe due to the fact that I'm working again! Yoohoo! I'm back to the same place as before... same school as Maja attends. It's sooo good to be back "in business", even though it's only 3 days a week... but can't spend my days making cards and playing with my stamps anymore... back to night time stamping... hahaha....

I needed a card for the girl next door who turned 8 the other day, and came up with this. Maja, who will be 8 in three weeks time, chose the image; a bratz girl printed out from one of those "print and colour in" pages for children.
Image is coloured with Promarkers (I didn't make a note of which ones) and mounted on 3d foam tape. Sentiment is a freebie from Create with TLC (tons of freebies on there:)) I have also used some scraps of paper and some bling...
I sometimes wonder what other card makers do to the inside of their cards... so I thought maybe other people would be interested in seeing what I do to mine (most of the time anyway...).
I usually only add a one layer panel to the inside. Sometimes I punch one edge with a border punch (if I've used it on the front of the card), some has a stamped image on the panel and sometimes, if I don't have a coordinating stamp, I draw an image. I usually also add a thin, black double line around the edges of the panel and use my Promarkers to add some colour outside the line, and sometimes I just use an inkpad (like the one top right). Clean and simple, that's what I like...
Thanks for looking!
