Before I get onto my card, I would just like to say thank you to everyone who left lovely comments and emailed me yesterday to wish me a Happy Birthday.
I didn't hear from any of my family or friends yesterday and the only people who gave me a card were Barry and the kids so if it weren't for you lot I would of had the worst birthday ever.
I did get a card and a pressie from Stef though :) (thanks again hun, your the best!!) and a card from Lucy from a yahoo group (still don't know who she is), Lorraine sent me some WOJ images a little while ago and a few of you lovely ladies asked me for my address so you could send a card or images etc. Thanks Susie, Bev and Donna :)
I would of got my copics in time for my birthday but because of the Easter holiday the place I ordered them from were closed till today so I should get them tomorrow :)
I am so glad I have met so much lovely blog buddies in the last few weeks/months, I really do appreciate every one of you visiting and leaving me lovely comments.
Well enough of my babbling, you came to see the card so here it is.
There is a fabby sketch by Tiets over at the Sugar Bowl with lots of layers, so I just had to have a go. I have used My Sugar Nellie Picking Apples stamp and coloured her with copics and I also used distress inks for the pink and brown bits.
I'm not very good with my distress inks yet and I only have 3 colours just now but I do enjoy using them and I think I will get some more colours soon so I can practice some more with them. I also done some stitching by hand round the image and sentiment.
I saw these papers when I was at the Papeterie the other day and couldn't resist buying some, aren't they gorgeous? I also used some plain pink and white card that I embossed with a cuttlebug folder and used chalk on the white one to highlight the embossing.
I really enjoyed making this card. I don't normaly use this much layers because I don't like to cover up pretty papers too much but I think I might of been converted to using more layers now lol.
papers: K&Co Wild Raspberry collection, Flowers & Butterflies,Pink Paisley and Flower Swirl.
Stamps: Sugar Nellie picking apples, Joanna Sheen's Messy rabbit sentiment.
Embelishments: flowers handcut from K&Co papers, spacer from local bead shop lace and pearl from my stash. swirl cut from Cricut machine.
Tools used: copics ,distress inks, cuttlebug
Thanks for stopping by today. Please do leave a comment to let me know you have been and so I can come visit you :)
