Romantic Lady

Good evening bloggers!  I hope you've had a lovely Saturday and are looking forward to a relaxing Sunday?

A friend of mine at Craft Telly Forum celebrated her birthday yesterday (yes, on Friday 13th!  Eeek!) and as a member of one of the card swaps I have joined, naturally I made a card for her.  I wanted to make something which was not my usual style (whatever that is) and decided to go for something more delicate than my normal creations.  This is what I came up with:

The image was a copyright free one I found on the internet and printed out myself and highlighted the pearls on her dress with a touch of glitter.  Well, you've gotta have a little bling, don't you?  The backing paper was also printed by me.  The doily was originally white so I inked the edges in pink to match the roses in the main image and the pink flowers I got from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Here is the card in close up:

I really enjoyed making this card for such a talented lady as Paula and I'm delighted to say that she loved it.  If you get five minutes, please pop over to her blog, Ephemera's Attic and check out the gorgeous creations she has on display there.

Well, that's me done for Saturday evening.  I'm off for a glass of wine or two before bed.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

I have entered this card in Challenge #12 - Anything Goes Using Your New Stash at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and the new stash I used was the paper doily.

Now with my DT hat on LOL. Such a lovely, soft romantic feel to this card, beautiful combination of soft lemon and pink and such a gorgeous image, and the pretty blooms, reminds me of freesias. Thanks for joining us at FSC. XXX

Just a small reminder for a next time around, as far as I can see, there is no stamping on your card? Apart from that it is lovely though, as I said in my earlier comment.
