Birthday Mail


I've been making some changes as you can see. I wanted a new look blog thought it might inspire me to try some different things, we shall see. I'm making a few changes around here but more about that another time.

Let's get to today's card which uses a pretty image from Theresa Momber. I did use this image for my one layer card, last week. I coloured the two images together using Copics but realised afterwards that this is a handle on the side and in America they are usually red so just recoloured the actual card. Should have re photographed but didn't naughty me!!!

Two oval Spellbinders where used to cut first the stamped and coloured image then a second larger one in pale lemon. I've attached the image with double sided tape slightly off centre (for a change).
The base card has one layer of pale lemon card followed by the dp from Basic Grey Lemonade
A scrap of pale lime Bazzill came next and this was embossed through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss dots embossing folder. The stamped image sits on this. Across the bottom I layered more pale lemon and the spotted dp from the same paper pad with the sentiment stamped on a ribbon tag which is threaded with some glittered ribbon.

That's it for today, we made it through another wet and blustery week in Sydney. The garden is starting to look quite green again.

Hope you have a good week end planned, till next time...........
