Nephew's Scratchie Card


Hi everyone, I seem to have lost time.....can't seem to find it anywhere. If you do find it please send it back home to me. :-)
I have taken extra photos to go with this card, so that I can make up a tutorial but that will have to wait for another day.  
I have since added some scratchies to this card and sent it off to my nephew for his birthday which was yesterday.  Oh and yes, Lynn, the scratchies are lottery tickets with the silver scratch part.

I wanted to also share this card today as I had our latest challenge over at Unstampabelles in mind when making it.  The blue star is a bottle lid which I found on the street in Gordonvale outside of one of our many pubs (4 to be exact).  No I had just been to the Florist to have coffee.  The silver section of the card is alfoil.  I was inspired by our Guest Designer this month and also one of my tennis partners to use the foil in the embossing folder.  Comes out beautifully....this is four layers of alfoil.
I made the paper bead also.  Brought back terrific memories.  When I was a kid we made heaps of these with our Mum.  We hung them in our bedroom door entrance as a curtain/screen.  
Remember if you can add a paper bead to your recycled paper creation over at Unstampabelles (no stamps) you will receive a bonus entry.

Okay must dash have a good day.
