Good morning everyone,
I hope you all had a good week, I am super excited as we are going to visit our eldest son today. Unfortunately we don't get to see him very often and he doesn't live near us.
Anyway on with todays card, which is for the new card challenge at the Ribbon Girl. The challenge is 'Anything Goes', it can be any image, any shape as long as it is a card.
When I made this card, it was a lovely warm day which inspired me to make a card using spring colours, I am not usually a fan of yellow, but I am quite pleased with how it has turned out.
The image is a Magnolia stamp called Summer Wedding Tilda, but in my opinion she can be used for any occasion. I have coloured her with DI reinkers and used a small amount of Inktense pencils.
The papers are from from a Galeria Paper pad called 'As if in a Dream', they are a lovely pale yellow and I've added some grey paper from my stash.
The pearls in the centre of the flowers, were cut from some 6mm white pearl trim.
I love the white Ballerina Blossoms, they are so soft and delicate. The roses are large rose buds.
Unfortunately the picture doesn't show it up very well, but on the base of the card is a pretty double lace bow with a pearl gem in the centre.
To finish the card off I've placed a pretty diamante silver butterfly charm on the top right of the card.
