2016 promises to be an exciting time for me and because of this I intend to blog but it may be slightly more random than in the past.
So, 2016 is exciting because a) we had a very unexpected raffle prize win (I still can't quite believe it) a 7 night stay travelling Business Class to Dubai. Never travelled BC, so looking forward to that, b) it's our Ruby wedding in April, c) I will be having a milestone birthday in October and d) the most exciting (and frightening) news of all is that my daughter will become a yummy mummy in April. It will be our first grandchild too!
Today's card was made for friends of ours that got engaged over the Christmas period. I wanted to make a simple card, as like me, they're not teenagers anymore! The focal point is a smaller version of the background. I printed this off twice using Serif to have one image more faded than the other. The plan was to paper piece, the darker image on the inside of the die cut. But the image I chose to use didn't provide enough contrast. Still effective though
5x7 card blank
Serif - Butterfly Garden
Tattered Lace - Starlight Oval die
Lidll - pale blue card
Sentiment printed with a laser printer and foiled with Patsy May Foil It machine
I am so full of cold at the moment that I don't think I'll be venturing very far this week end. On that note I just want to say that my thoughts are with the recent flood victims. It has been awful for them To those unwell or in pain of all descriptions - I sincerely hope things improve for you
