Any plans for your week-end? Hope the weather is good for you. Here we had a warm Saturday, too warm for me with a head like a forty shilling pot!!! My cold is moving along nicely no more head in a tissue all day....... Well that's not quite right I still need the tissues .... I just cough my heart out!
OK, OK, no-one likes to hear me whinge right! I'll just get on and show you a quick card.
I needed a Sympathy card so I turned to an old GKD set and this beautiful Orchid image.
I've stamped the orchid in Memento London Fog onto a scrap of X-Press It blending card and.... inspired by Susan Raihala's card here I've just used some chalk to lightly colour parts of the flower. It's so subtle not sure you'll see it in the photo unless you make the picture larger!
All other supplies used for this card are from GKD.
My card Base is PL, pure white with a layer of Vibrant Violet.
I've dry embossed some Lovely Lavender card using a Cuttlebug Textile embossing folder.
Next comes a band of Swiss dots embossed Fresh Asparagus card with some Violet gross grain ribbon wrapped around.
The image has been cut and embossed with a Spellbinder Labels 4 die before being popped up over the green/violet band with foam dots.
My sentiment was cut with the smallest label from the set and to complete the card I added three small half pearls.
This really was a quick card to make and I like the light chalk colouring.....might have to try some more...
Thanks for dropping by, enjoy your week end............
