My crafting friend Helen (aka Heffalump) will be 30 on Sunday; so to mark the occasion I've made her a card. Helen makes some fab and inspiring cards, and is also very into her Penny Blacks so we were bound to bond as friends!! Whilst I was about it I thought I'd allow myself to be inspired by a sketch, so I laid it out in line with Papertake Weekly Challenge - Katharina's Sketch #8. I also notice that this week's ABC Challenge is "E for Embellishments" - well as always my card has a few .. in this case flowers, a pearl brad and some lace.
I used: main image by Penny Black; sentiment stamp free with August 08 "Craft Stamper" magazine; Sandylion background papers and lace trim from Edwin Allen; hydrangea petals by Prima and Papermania pearl brad. Die cut numbers are Cuttlebug "Hippie Chick" alphabet, and yet again I've brought out my new nesties to play with! I also had another go at faux stitching almost everywhere on this card!!
Hope Heffa will have a great day!
