Good Afternoon All, Im so sorry that Ive not been around for a week but life has been very busy here at Chalmers towers, Ive been busy not only with my DT work but also helping hubby remove ivy from our two Lilac trees, clever me thought it would be nice to see the varigated ivy growing through the tree but it wasnt as it choked it and made it very sparse in the centre, anyway with lots of climbing he eventually managed to clear them both yesterday, mind you our green wheely bin is full to the brim with the rubbish.
Anyway todays card has been created for this weeks LOV challenge and Ive used one of those freebies from one of the craft magazine and Ive coloured it with my copic and tria pens before cutting it out with my Nestabilitie Label 1 then used the die to create a faux mount by drawing around the edge of it and cutting it out with scissors.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of a greeny blue card and one of three papers from the Kay Miller Digi Downloads, the first paper is a light green spot paper and then on top I have cut a 5" square and used one of the all around heart border punches on it from Martha Stewart, and for the third mount Ive used yet another piece of the same card and punched along one edge with the same border punch and put my last slip of paper by the side of it.
I then wrapped a green gauzy ribbon around the card and placed my mounted image in the centre, the sentiment is one of the LOV images and this has been mounted on a tag with yet a bit more of the ribbon threaded through the hole and this was then stuck at the bottom on the right hand side. I then created a rose spray in the top left hand corner with several different sizes of roses stuck to the card with silicone glue and on top of some punched out rose leaves. The final thing is the few pearl gems stuck at the top and bottom in the opposite corners to the roses and sentiment.
This card is to be entered in the following challenges:-
