Screen Card

Well the weekend is upon us once again and I can hardly believe that June is almost half way over...only 18 days left until we fly to N.Y. to visit with the three children we cared for for 15 months. I can hardly wait!

I was browsing Wiff of Joy Inspiration & Tutorial blog earlier this week and just fell in love with the Screen Card demonstrated by Jane Johnson and I had to give it a try. I'm very pleased with the outcome and hope that you might consider giving it a try too.

I used Fairydust Tilda for this card. I'm so in love with this little gal, well actually with the entire collection, and I thought she would be a perfect choice for this style of card. She is available here from Diana's online store! Actually I don't see her in the store at the moment, Diana must have sold out, but if you let her know you want this image I'm sure she'll be able to oblige.

So here is the front of my card...
