A4 card


This is the largest card (A4) I have ever made. I was asked to make it for somebody leaving at work and as there were so many people to sign they wanted it this size. Thanks goodness for digi images as I could make the image large enough to suit the card. The image is the beautiful horse from Whimsy which was sold to aid people in Haiti a while ago. Papers are K&Co Hopscotch.I added lots of glitter, BO Bunny and Prima flowers with spacers and brads., Sizzix cut swirls and gems.
Challenges:
Everybody Art Things with wings
Totally Papercrafts Animal magic
Polka Doodles Nursery rhyme (Ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross to see a fine lady ride on a white horse)

oh wow now that is stunning. I love the image and the colours are great. I know what you mean about the size I have done a couple and it is so difficult to scale up, but I think you have done a brilliant job

Oh beautiful card Marianne!
I've been asked to make a bigger card than I usually do, and I'm dreading it! How anyone starts a big blank scrapbook page is beyond me!
