Image Swap Wallet

I made this wallet for an image swap I am currently taking part in on the Docrafts Forum. I also based it on the Mojo Monday sketch from last week. Better late than never eh?!

I used my gorgeous Eloise Greengrass image and Papermania 'Retro Floral' papers for this card. I pulled the colours from the paper to coordinate with the image so she is looking very bright and colourful! As for the glitter....... I only recently found out that you can watercolour with Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll pens! As most of you probably know, if you scribble on an acrylic block and then pick the colour up with a waterbrush, you get an amazingly smooth subtle sheen. Such a fab technique which I'm pleased I discovered, even if it was a little late! To finish the card off, I added some simple white ribbon and threaded it through a couple of eyelets, tying it into a bow to keep the contents nice and secure.
