Evening Everyone, I hope you are all well and enjoying the sunshine, I am not so good again, chest pains, migraine yada yada yada, seems like every time I do anything lately those are the consequences lol oh well such is life I guess and I am not about to let it stop me.
Today's card is a little bit different for me and I am really quite pleased with it, I didn't have any papers that were what I wanted so I made the purple paper myself, which meant that the card took a lot longer than I really wanted to spend on it but I think it was worth it in the end.
To make my card I have used an 8"x8" scalloped card blank, some plain black card, I have then added a die cut doily cut from red paper using a Cheery Lynn die and a my section with my own handmade paper trimmed with black lace. Next I added my frame and flourishes cut from red paper using Marianne's Design Dies. My image is a stamp from Sugar Nellie and coloured in using Promarkers and Flex markers. I then added my stips of purple fuzzy ribbon and some black paper flowers to the top right of the card, my thistle flowers to the bottom right (I have had these in my stash for ages and been dying to use them but not known what to do, then this week I get two ideas at once so expect to see some more of them soon lol). I have then added some of my handmade stick pins (to everyone that guessed that Luke made these ones, nope these are mine, Luke likes girly pretty things! lol) and some netty ribbon made in to a bow (which I won in the lovely Rina's candy). Last but not least I added a few peel off stars.
