Forever Friends - Tall and Slim

This week at Forever Friends we have to make a tall slim card.

Well my Distress Inks have been so abandoned lately and they were desperate for use so I coloured the cutey bear with them for a change but  you really do need good watercolour paper I think to get a good result, I bought my paper on Ebay and it is really good but maybe a bit too rough, think I will use the other side next time!!!

The paper is bits and bobs from my stash, I punched out the holes on the brown card and threaded cord through attaching a button at the end.

Beautiful card, Dawn. What a true inpiration again. Love the punched out holes on the brown cardstock. Did you even put some glimmer on the inside of the paw??? Looks shiny and great.
