Good Afternoon peeps, well another glorious day has passed, after the early rain again that is. Ive had a lovely day with my eldest daughter, hubby & youngest son visiting this lunchtime (the eldest grandson was out with his friend). Ive had to go to bed for an hour though as I was knackered to say the least!! Oh, my new oven has been fitted too as the other one had a faulty element as it kept working loose & catching on the ceramic fan so making a horrible din! As the same model wasn't available I had a surprise of an upgrade (foc too!!).
The card I want to tell & show you today is a card I made for a friend that I have made on Facebook.
Donna is a fantastic friend & we regularly talk on the phone even though we've never met. I regard Donna with the respect that she regards me so we get on really well.
The image is from Elisabeth Bell (designed & drawn by) and is really beautiful (as are all of her illustrations), coloured with pastel Promarkers to compliment the backing papers which are from an A5 booklet that came with a magazine some years ago.
The sentiment is one that I found in my stash (www.polkadoodles.co.uk) as is the little verse (that must be a stamp but I cant remember who made it). The butterfly has been cut twice from my Spellbinders Papillion dies, once in pearlescent white card & a pearlescent lilac card. I attached the paper roses with Pinflair glue gel. The ribbon is from my own stash.
A beautiful card if I say so (again lol)...in fact most of my cards I really love.. ;)
