Good evening everyone, including those of you who are kind enough to follow my ramblings. Well, it's definitely the birthday season! It is one of my best friend's 50th today. She has overcome so many obstacles in her life and always keeps on keeping on no matter what. Such an inspiration. A card was needed...
We were chatting recently (discussing options for prom dresses for her eldest) and she reminded me that used to do lots of dressmaking, and an idea formed.
The colour scheme came about almost by accident - mopping up the remains of DI and water, especially on embossed white card, can have surprisingly subtle results. In this case it co-ordinated beautifully with a piece of Basic Grey card and some SB Fleur de Lis squares. The sentiment (Sam Poole) fit my friend so well.
It was then a case of layering up the embellies/stamped images (Andy Skinner/Sam Poole) including faux buttons, ribbon, lace, etc.
Having a spare piece of the embossed card meant I could layer up the taylor's dummy and then finish it with some dyed seam binding (courteousy of The Funkie Junkie's Boutique).
Pleased to say my friend loved her card. And I'm going to enter it for the Simon Says Stamp And Show challenge - No Rules (sponsored by Simon Says Stamp). Time to disappear for another day. Thanks for your lovely comments, hugs to you all wherever you are. Buttons x
