The gorgeous papers are from Nancy Watt Collection and were freebie with 'Making Cards' Magazine a couple of months back. I have paper-pieced on image with the dotted paper and used the Gingham paper to make border. I made this card up as I went along, so was fun to make. Sentiment was made on computer. I have added a bit of bling but it doesn't show up too well! but around the image and around the border I have used Sakura Glitter Pen in Lime Green and it does give it some nice sparkle. Buttons are from my mum's Sewing Basket! Thanks Mum! Flowers and leaves are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Green: Copics G82, G85
Bear: Tan Promarker and Prismacolor Pencils
Reds: R49 and Spectrum Noir Red 1
Inside is decorated with some paper that was amongst my free digitals downloaded from Papercraft and Cardmaking magazine - it's called 'Walk in The Woods' Crisp Leaves.
Had a lovely Saturday. Watched some Miami Vice episodes from 80's with my daughter. And just generally chilled out and ate too many cakes! And tomorrow is Downton Abbey - Woo Hoo !!! can't wait !! and doesn't Matthew look hot in his uniform!!! (swoon, swoon!!!) (hot flush - turn on the fan!) - they SO better not let him die. If they kill off my Eye Candy I will be writing to Julian Fellowes Tout Suite! ROFL
And .... started reading this book ... Fall of Giants by Ken Follett. It's MASSIVE !!!! but I read Pillars of the Earth and World Without End and really loved them. I am slow reader so it will probably take me a while !!!! ;-))
I am so glad they have fixed that photo slideshow thing in Blogger. I didn't like it at all. When commenting you couldn't zoom in and I kept clicking the back button by mistake and going off the web page - it drove me nuts!! It should at least be optional !!!
Enough waffling and back to my card.
