Saturday Selection

003a

A Happy weekend to you all,  I have woken up full of the joys of spring shame about the weather wish it matched my mood.  For the 2nd night in a row Rosie slept on my bed :), it is amazing there has been none of the hiding behind chairs and running away when anyone approaches that is usual when you introduce a new cat to the house.  She immediately decided which was her chair, whos lap she likes and after just 3 days now rules the household!!!

001 

I decided to make a card using the image I coloured for my little tutorial using Grace Standing from Sugar Nellie – Funky Kits, I raided my card scrap box for the papers I was aiming for the vintage look on this one.    I have used another of my new Go-Kreate Die sets to cut out the image this one is called Rectangular Frilly No 6.   I have distressed a torn piece of test paper and a doiley with Vintage Photo DI.  Flowers as always are from Wild Orchid Crafts, Daisy Lace is from The Ribbon Girl, I have added flat back pearls from WOC to the edge of the lace.  Butterflies are from Panduro.

 005

I have again used on of the Kraft Pockets from The Ribbon Girl on the inside of the card, and have made a little greeting with A Stempleglede Sentiment.

003b The Copic colours used on this card can be found under my Tutorial on the side bar.

This card will shortly be available on my e-bay site
