A little bit later than expected posting this, but i had to watch my favourite programme on T.V. at the moment..........Wild at Heart.......i love it....and an hour of it is not long enough!!!
In case you think you are going mad.................you're not, it's me!!....... My PBSC card for last week only got posted on Friday and so i was determined to be a little earlier with my card for this week :)
The challenge this week is 'Get Well Soon' and although i don't enjoy sending a Get Well card it's always handy to have one in your stock box and hey if it brightens someones day when they are feeling down then all the better!
I'm showing this side view first so you can see how i cut my card blank using one of my new Nesties. I cut another in the same size from the patterned paper and glued it to the front!
Onto the image.........the flower, the bee and the ladybirds are all Penny Black from an acrylic set that i picked up at Stamperama for half price :) called 'Fresh New Day' perfect for spring and easter coming up too! I still prefer to use a wood mounted stamp, but the acrylic sets allow for easy positioning and you can create a little scene on your acrylic block, which is exactly how i did mine :) The sentiment is HOTP, also acrylic and i've coloured it all in my usual fashion with Distress Inks.
I used some smaller nesties from the set to cut & emboss the mats before layering onto the card front and some ribbon and embellies from my stash to complete my design. All papers are basic Grey 'Urban Prairie'
Hope to see you tomorrow to reveal my design for The Pink Elephant, a special week for me so i do hope you can join me then ;-D
