Sample No 4 for Sarah - "Kingfisher" Card

This is the forth sample Ive created for Sarah from her new CD "Feathered Friends" and this one is of a beautiful image of a Kingfisher, Ive also used some of the small extra images to create a waterfall for the inside. The main card is a 8"x 8" design, and the outside mount is silver with one of two paper designs that Ive used is a gorgeous montage of wording and images. And onto this I have created a mount for the main image of again silver mirri card, and stuck these together with some foam tape, before sticking it to the card I have used a piece of velum and one of my corner and border arched punches sets from Martha Stewart and made a square mat then wrapped a piece of blue spotted ribbon around both before the mounting it on top of. The border at the bottom is to hold the sentiment and at the moment Ive discovered Ive forgotten to put one on it, will have to dig out my peeloffs again.
The inside is again another silver mirri card mount with the second paper, this has bubbles and fish in the background with a beautiful strip along the bottom of the kingfisher bird heads. I created the waterfall with five of the smaller images and stuck them to a rotating piece of card before fixing the bottom to the mount with blue brads, it was then stuck to the inside of the card to hide the backs of the brads. To operate if all you do is pull that extra piece of card at the bottom to cause the little images to flip up.
