Last of Amy's birthday cards

Hi Every one I hope you are all keeping well sorry I'm not blogging as much but with one thing and another I'm not getting much crafting time so no point really :O( Anyway

 So forn those of you that would like to see the card I made from us for Amy here it is

Large 8 x 8" card (for some reason most of my cards lately are around this size I have no idea why:o/

Papers are freebies as per usual and if you can see the bottom piece I used a freebie ambossing fo.lder tyhat was free with this months card making and papercraft mag
Sp the papers have been distressed then inled with DI tattered lace and victorian velvet  I sanded back the embossed piece to show the white to bring out the flowers more then inked the edges of this too

 I used this old CLP sketch for LO

This image is of course a saturated canary  image I tried to fade the lines out a little as I'm still not that comfy with the no line technique so I made the look more brown then faded them a little (not to much lol) I added the sentiment before I printed her out the once coloured I used spellbinder die to cut out

I coloured her in with Pro markers

Tan, rosewood, walnut, chestnut(boots)
Shale, umber, burnt umber, firewood,(hair)
Blush, sunkissed pink, coral, nutmeg (skin)
Sorbet, peoney, fushia pink (dress)

the bow is made from seam binding and organza ribbon then the little spray I got from local craft shop the roses are metal
I added some flat backed gems which I coloured with a PM to match and then finished off with the insert

I kept the insert pretty simple with just a faded out line of image on both sides and the verse and there you have it
can't believe she's 22 already

I will leave you with a list of challenges I am entering and I will see you as and when have fun!!!! Die cut or emboss (both) for a special lady (my baby) ATG

  10. Hi Jacki

    I am a bit of a blogland stranger too .. .. in terms of blog visiting.

    Sorry it has taken me so long to catch up with you.

    The card you made for your daughter is gorgeous!

    I love your image choice and that fabulous ribbon embellishment.
