Pink birthday card

A birthday card with a Magnolia image which I coloured with Copic pens.  I added some shocking pink Berisford satin ribbon, a 15mm clear acrylic sparkly button tied on with some ivory hemp twine.  The lace is 19mm Alice white guipure and I added a row of pink organza rose trim at the bottom of the card. I added some Stardust Stickles to make the ballet dress sparkle.  I finished the card with some 8mm white flower shaped self adhesive flatbacks

My flower arrangement includes a pink glass bead strawberry, a 30mm pale pink wild rose, pink cherryu blossom and a pink gardenia.  The leaves are die cut from a Lawn Fawn die set

A card featuring 'Smile' a digital image by Sheepski Designs coloured with Copic pens.  I added pale pink satin ribbon, white daisy flowers and Lyra white guipure lace. The sentiment was computer generated.

I asked the lovely Andrea Norris of Sheepski Designs (who we met at a Copic colouring class near Leeds earlier this year) if she would be able to make a digital image of a westie for Andrea and we were both over the moon at the finished image, just perfect.  Here is the link to the image called 'smile' image no 131from Andrea's etsy store 

Thank you Andrea Norris, and thanks for looking everyone,
see you soon

Anniversary card ....

For this anniversary card I used a LOTV 'simply print' digital image and added the text before printing so I knew it would all go together nicely.  I matted onto toning card and background designer paper, then added ivory silky crush tied in a bow and topped with an oval ivory pearl and diamante flatback.  My flower arrangement consists of a couple of 30mm ivory wild roses, a 20mm open rose, cream miniature blossoms and some paper rose leaves.

Diamond anniversary card ....

I was asked to make a card for a couple celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary very soon - what an achievement!!  I resized the downloaded LOTV image to suit the size of my finished card and added a sentiment, making sure I used an ink colour to suit the overall colour theme printed a digital LOTV image, adding the computer generated sentiment, then coloured it with Copic pens.  I die-cut and mated the image then added some 17mm 'Fiona' white guipure lace, 7mm silver grey satin ribbon and a 11mm diamante and pearl flatback

A closer view of the image - really useful because you can colour the flowers to suit the bridal/anniversary couple.  I added Stardust Stickles for a bit of sparkle!

Gift envelope ....

A gift envelope for a boy, but I still managed to add a snowflake button tied with hemp twine, some red 16mm saddlestitch ribbon and a tiny bit of silver twinkle tinsle!     There is a small pocket inside the card and I added a small magnet set so the lift up flap stays closed
