Happy Anniversary at Charisma Cardz

Good morning. 
I can hardly believe that it's Thursday already - where has this week disappeared too so quickly???? Just a few more days and Jack will be back at school and John back at work and I'll be back to being on my own all day :o(
Thank goodness I have my little crafty haven to while away the hours in with Pickle- Lili cat to keep me company :o)

Today I have two Dt projects to share with you and this one is for 

where the theme is 


Our sponsors this week are:
gif maker

Please pop over to the main challenge blog for the full details of the prizes on offer.

I decided to make a different style card this time and made a sort of half gatefold card (the 'proper' name might be a 'Z Fold' card) - basically I scored the front of the base card down the centre and folded it back on itself. I then adhered the image panel so that it sat half on the folded back panel and the other half over the inside panel - hope that makes sense lol!!!!

Make sure you adhere the ribbon before you attach the image panel.

I decorated the inside using the same panel as the image (die cut using Spellbinders Lattice rectangles and plain rectangles) so that it sat directly under the image panel on the front when it is closed.

The adorable image is 'You and Me' available here from Tiddly Inks
coloured with PM's and Flexmarkers
Sentiment - Free digi but I'm not sure who by - sorry :o( 
I think it might be Raindrop Echo Designs but not certain.

Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Adhesive Pearls

Madera Corner Flourish - Memory Box

DP - Craftwork Cards Pearlised Papers
