Firstly, a huge welcome to all my new followers - Lynda, Berni and Sheryl - it's lovely to see you and I hope you enjoy visiting me - and thanks to everyone for all the lovely comments you leave me - I'm so happy that you take the time and I love reading them!
Today is yet another grey, cloudy and damp day, so don't be surprised if there's more than one post!
I recently won a whopping £25 voucher from Imagine and of course didn't wait long to spend it - I cannot resist all the blingy stuff on that site but they also have some gorgeous papers, so spent some of my prize on the lovely touchy feely designs.(Like I need more papers????!!!!!!!!!)
The ones that I used for this card are heavily linen textured and I think they're really pretty.
This was a really quick and simple card to make and I also used up some of the stuff laying about on the desk - stitched the papers and added a remnant of white vintage lace.
The 'rose' was made from pink tissue paper (another bit of recycling as one of my birthday pressies was wrapped in it!) cut with two sizes of scalloped nesties and scrumpled up to give a ruffled appearance. (idea for this came from my bloggin buddie Lynne). I had a bit of white lace from an old net curtain that had a flower pattern on it and a scrap of fuchsia pink slub linen so cut out two of the flowers from the lace and used a larger nestie to cut out from the pink material. I secured it all together with a pearl brad, then mounted it onto a fancy nestabilities tag cut from pearlised card.
The sentiment was computer generated printed onto the same pearl card and I coloured the punched butterfly with a promarker.
