Hallo all, this card has been made for my mum for her 65th birthday this week, she is looking extremely well for her 65 years and I am very proud of her. I have used an image that I coloured a wee while ago when I only had a few promarkers but the colours were good so I matched papers and made up a card for her. The lilac card is textured/embossed to be like leather effect, and the dark purple lightweight card that I used for the larger nestibility has a beautiful floral embossed pattern on it, hard to show in the photo, sorry.
I added the stickles glitter to her wings to give her a little zing.
The Nestabilities that I used were the eyelets and the beaded circles, one of which I won in some candy that I entered at Sweet Stampin, it was purely by chance that I noticed it on a sidebar of a blog that I follow and I went over to check it out. Great Blog and fun challenges.
Around the Nestabilities I popped wee pearls, and added some lovely mulberry flowers which were attached using some pearl brads. The lace that has been popped under the main image area horizontally is from a pretty wash set that I received a couple of years ago from a friend.
The wee tag is from a freebie chipboard set from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine and has been attached with a small piece of organza ribbon that I tied into a bow. The wee charm is tibetan silver and from my beady stash.
The inside I have used some more embossed leather like lilac, a papermania butterfly attached with brad, more lace and a hand made flower, made using my punches, some wetting and scrunching then drying and attaching.
Many many thanks for looking and these are the challenges that I am popping my card into:-)
PS OOOPPS forgot to say I was entering this into sweetstampin's challenge this week which is 'things with wings' doh! I think Homer might be making a comeback.
