The Old Well

It’s time for the new challenge over at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges this week.    This week we have a recipe to follow.  You need to include a ribbon, two design papers, and three buttons. You should stop over at the challenge because let me tell you the DT have some awesome cards to share with you.  And the images we have to use are just as brilliant, and you can get them at the Shop here.

This is how I did the inside.

My supplies used were Prismacolor pencils, MS punch, paper by DCWV and open stock at Michaels. Tape and buttons from stash.

Hi Debra,
This is a stunning creation and I'm so glad that you left the link in the comments. Your border is plenty fancy enough - I'm not sure what has happened to your first link, because this is the first time I've seen your lovely card. I definitely haven't removed it - I would have no reason to, and I'm the only one who can. I wonder if you have left the link on a different challenge blog because at the moment ours is standing at 134 entries and you said that yours had been #137.
You're more than welcome to come and link it via inlinkz again though and give more people the opportunity to come and see your wonderful work. Thank you for joining us at Crafty Ann's again.
