My second post in just one day - woohoo!!! I was making this card up late last night - well, actually it was 1am. I was having one of those nights where my mind was working over time - I have so much going on of late. So...card making helped to take my mind of life's problems. Though it was rather late and my eyes started feeling tired, I am so impressed with this card, I had to finish it right away. I have made this for my Grand-Daughter Holly who will be 2 on New Years Day. OK - cards done early but better than late or last minute. I have just got to put her name or age on the card.....but may do that on the inside...as I don't want it looking too busy.
I have used lots of fancy ribbon around the nestie die cuts. Image used is from the very talented Mo Manning - she is called Baby Fairy Flora. Link to Mo's site is on my side bar if you fancy taking a look. Again I have coloured her with just normal cheap colouring pencils and blended with paper stumps and sansodor. Perfect combination. Flowers are from WildOrchidCrafts - again the link is on my side bar. The large yellow flower is from Hobby Craft, which I will be buying more of later today. The curly strands of orange are just very thin strips of card, which I cut with my paper cutter. They do have to be thin for them to curl. Great effect, don't you think? The white leaves are from Magnolia, which can be purchased from Sirstampalot - again link in my side bar. Papers used are the wonderful Nana's Nursery Collection - DCWV. I adore these and the colours were just perfect for the coloured image.
I have to shoot now - else nothing will get done, plus I don't want to get stuck in traffic going to the Hobby Craft - best get a bank loan lol
Again - have a great day - remember it's Friday so relax and enjoy your weekend.
Happy crafting folks.
I think this card may come under Autumn colours for Mo Manning's Challenge Blog. Isn't oranges, yellow's and greens Autumn? Well, we will soon see won't we? lol
