Hi everyone, hope you're enjoying your weekend. I have spent quite a portion of this past week glued to the Olympics on TV and cheering on our athletes to ever-greater glory - wow what a Games it's been!! I'm rather sad that it's all coming to a close .. just the Closing Ceremony to go, so I'll be popping in front of the TV one last time to watch in a little while.
Meanwhile I spotted a new challenge about a week ago devoted to lovers of pink - woo hoo!! That's me for sure!! In between watching Tom Daley diving and Mo Farah and Usain Bolt running last night, here's the birthday card I made for my mum.
Not a great picture as easel cards are always so difficult to photograph - here's a closer view of the front.
It all started from this adorable Wild Rose Studio elephant stamp which I was determined to use on my mum's card. Originally I intended making an 8" * 8" card, but this image was a bit too small for that, so I maximized my space by making an easel card instead.
Stamps: Wild Rose Studio "Bella With Butterfly"; LotV sentiment circle;
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers; die cut letters and butterflies dusted with glamour dust;
Papers: Papermania "Lucy Cromwell";
Supplies: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts; pearls from The Hobby House; ribbon from my stash;
Tools: Martha Stewart "large monarch butterfly" punch; Leone Em "Ash Family" leaf punch; Cheery Lynn "Lace Flourish Corners" die; Cuttlebug "Hippie Chick" alphabet dies.
