One Stitch at a Time Challenge 114

This week at One Stitch at a Time, it's anything goes! And the lucky winner of this challenge will win images and papers used by the DT, which are available at the Stitchy Bear shop.

This week, I worked with an image from Beary Dust called Arrianne. I decided to do something a little different, and so got busy in Photoshop Elements to put together the bits I needed for a gatefold card.

As you can see, I've used the image several times.

I added the image to a background in Photoshop Elements, and added some paper from Stitchy Bear herself (which I bought a while ago, and won't be included in the prize). It's from her Oriental Beauty collection. I reversed the image for a bit of variety, then printed the panels and coloured the image using Promarkers.
Showing a different angle
And showing the card open. I did the sentiments in Photoshop elements too, and added two inside panels, including one with an oval to write a message. I finished the card with a couple of jewelled bows from my stash.

Hope you can join us this week!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Stamp and Create where they want 'one for the ladies',
My Heart Pieces where anything goes,
Shelly's Images where they want us to 'show them what we've got',
Cardmadfairy where they want 'clean and simple'.
Crafty Catz where they want 'one for the girls'
Great Impressions where anything goes.
