Wednesday.....



Take a cute image, some pretty paper and hours of playing......... yes I'm a slow card maker!!!
I was pleased with this one when it was finished though so who cares.


The image from Precious Moments (thanks Juls) was coloured with Copic markers and cut with an oval die. A scalloped oval in LL is used as the mat and I just placed a dot in each scallop with a silver glitter pen. Foam tape was used to attach the image to the card.

My base card is SU Lavender Lace with a layer of white followed by Kaisercraft Lilac Avenue Collection dp.

I used a zig zag stitch around the circle added some pale lilac satin ribbon. Then to complete my card added the Mulberry Roses over punched fern, a stick pin and four hearts

I added the mulberry roses to opposite corners sitting on punched fern adding a stick pin to the top one. To complete the card I added the four hearts.

When you write it down it really sounds straight forward........ so why does it take so long???

I have to make a box for this one as it has to be mailed - wish me luck though.... Mum's card, along with her gift pack hasn't as yet reached her and that was posted three weeks ago!!!!

Thanks for stopping by today, till next time.........
