My Best Friend and I

Good morning to you all

Wow what a gorgeous day it was yesterday, I did a bit of housework and then played.  I had popped to see my best friend on Wednesday for coffee and we ended up colouring and playing as you do, this is one of the images I needed to finish off, that I did on Thursday and I made up the card yesterday.

So I made a birthday card with my image and then as I am enjoying my crafting, it has been a while, with the old mojo running low, well anyway I sort of got carried away with the embellishments again.

 So girly, isn't it...................
 I used a base layer and contrast of lilac card from Grimsby Crafts.  The papers are the lilac Papermania ones.  I punched the first layer on the right hand side corners before layering up the other two panels.  I slipped the off the edge Joy butterfly die just under the punched edged panel.  I added lace under the centre panel on the right hand side.................. I know then I almost hid it altogether :(  I added pearl strings, heart pearl flourish, pearls, pearl medallion, charm and frantage all from the Hobby House and then the flowers were white and from Wild Orchid Crafts but I used TH distress ink Liking Lilac and airbrushed the others with my V15 copic, before placing on the cards with some silver twiddly bits and some leaves.  Oh then I added a couple of tags and finally the sentiment, which is a Wild Rose Studio new release. Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrmmmmmmmmmmmmmm did I miss anything.................oh gosh yes I did that would be the lovely ribbon and bow from Lidl. Can I just say they do sell the most amazing ribbon :)

So on to that image coloured in copics with a little antique linen distressing around the edges

Totally gorgeous Kate ! I saw the ribbons at Lidl and now I wish I had bought some... Sigh... Have a lovely week-end Sweetie ! Hugs, blessings and love from Catherine

Karen B said...

Me again Kate! Just seen your comment on my blog about the distress markers.......do you like them??? I splashed out and bought the whole set and I hate them! They are sooo scratchy and seem very dry to me - not sure why but they seem as if the lids have been left off (but they haven't). Will be interested to see what you make of them.

Hugs.
