I hope this finds you all well out there in Blogland. Thank you for your lovely comments...as always they really are very much appreciated - I apologise for not being around for a few days. I seem to veer from days when I'm in agony and shattered to okish and alright to craft. Unfortunately this means I don't seem to get round to your blogs as often as I would like. If I've missed a few days I do try to play catchup but as you will all know this can be very time consuming. All I can say is I'm doing my best 😄. I had some good news Friday...my biopsy came back clear...its just a case of my dentist now keeping an eye on the affected areas every six months to watch for any changes. I must admit I hate the dentist and have done since I was a child but I am a good girl and go every six months for my checkup. My dentist is only a young girl but she is amazing and really puts me at ease.
Right everyone now for my card. I must admit I am very pleased with the way this turned out. My SIL asked me to make a card for an Autumn wedding. She showed me the invitation which was made with Kraftcard and reds and golds. Now I don't know if you've ever noticed these are not my colours at all...I'm much more a pastel, pink or purple girl!!! I must admit I put off making this one until I couldn't any longer hahaha.
The card layering is a mix of Creative Expression Antique bronze and cream card along with Kraftcard from The Range. The orange layer was made using Cosmic Shimmer Apricot Metallic Gilding Polish. A band of hessian, cream lace and orange ribbon were put across the middle of the card. The bottom of the card was embossed using a Sue Wilson folder called Aztec flowers - I think this is my new favourite embossing folder! The heart dies were my old faithfuls from Tonic. The wording was PC generated. The 'bouquet' was made with flowers from my stash and leaf dies by Sue Wilson. I finished with pearl corners and pearls from Creative Expression. I apologise for the shadow on some of the pics!
