Hope I find you all well on this last day of the week? Not that it makes a difference to me, as I'm working all the time on new doodles and cards at home! Ah, the pleasures of self-employment!
I am sharing a card that I made for my hubby's workmate. It is his Aunts 5oth Birthday coming up soon and he asked if I could make something, so muggins said 'yes'. And this is what I made:
I haven't followed any sketches for this one, just worked with what came into my head. Hard to do a card for someone you don't know.
I have however made it with a few challenges in mind! At Sophisticats this week they are wanting 'Flourishes and Bling'. I used a flourish backing paper from Tinker & Co for this, and the bling is the little green gems and gold touches.
There is a colour theme at Colour Create this week, of 'Chocolate, Cream and Mint'. Not too much in the way of mint on here, just the green gems and some green ink on the cream flower petals.
At Cute Card Thursday the theme is 'Celebrations', and the new theme at Polka Doodles is 'Special Birthdays/celebrations', so this fits into both of those too - how cool is that??
Everything here is from my stash, which I am still trying to get shrunk! I am trying to sell of loads of stuff in my ebay shop right now, as I have decided to close it at the end of March, so if you're interested, take a nose over there. I am adding stuff most days trying to get shot of it before I shut up shop! That reminds me, more photos to take while the sun is out. . .
