Just popped on to show you a birthday card that I made for a very special lady - I'm sure she won't mind me showing you all. My biggest decision was whether to make it using her own products, or something completely different! Well, I took the 'completely different' option and used one of my own favourites instead. Here's what I made ...
I began with my usual 8x8" scalloped card blank in cream and covered it with a selection of gorgeous papers from Pion Designs, which have all been inked with Victorian Velvet distress ink. The main image is one of my favourite Magnolia stamps - 'Tilda and her Bunny' from the Butterfly Dreams collection and is partly coloured with my Promarkers (the hat and top are paper-pieced with scraps from the backing papers to match). I also added a piece of ivory lace which I threaded with some pink organza ribbon and made a double bow using ivory seam binding and some more ogranza ribbon (can you spot the little silver metal heart charm?) I used a LOTV sentiment and embellished the card with pretty flowers, some die-cut leaves, a lace doily, a little stamped postcard, a couple of hearts, a TH 'Wish' ticket and some flat back pearl accents.
I love the shabby chic look that the card has - hope my friend enjoyed it as much as I loved making it.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
Inky Chicks - Bingo (Flowers, Lace and Pearls)
Magnolia Down Under - Recipe (Pink, Lace and Metal)
Midweek Magnolias - In the Pink with Ribbons and Pearls
Sugar Creek Hollow - Tic Tac Toe (Lace, Ribbon and Pearls)
Bye for now,
