I have not stowed away in the hotel - HONEST!! Although the way the weather has been since we came back from Cyprus has prompted me to wish I was had found a broom cupboard or something where I could have hidden myself! Have had very little free time at all the last 10 days and I have had several e mails asking if I was OK as there has been nothing updated onto the blog. So thank you all for asking, but I'm just fine and wishing there were more than 24 hours in a day at the moment!
Instead of a pale blue theme as on the previous similar card I used pink accents for this one and lots of textured cardstock. The embossed piece behind the layered cuttlebug grand nestie shapes was done using a lovely folder called ' Budding Vine' by Craft Concepts and I dusted it with Spun Sugar Distress Ink - although it can't be seen very well on the pic (my awful photography AGAIN!), it has highlighted the embossed piece beautifully. Please click on the pic to enlarge!
The stamp was coloured as always with Distress inks and promarkers and the dress highlighted with Stickles. I edged the shaped pieces with Spun Sugar ink and then added a wee bit of 'Cotton Candy' Stickles for some glitter. The flowers and pearls were from my stash, the heart was cut out for me some time ago by Maureen and I put some inked textured cardstock behind it. Inside the easel I tried to come up with a greeting that matched the Inkadinkadoo sentiment - it reads - Wishing you a Lifetime of Sharing- and the card stands up by means of another 'Maureen sent' heart punched strip.
