Happy New Year to all who have visited and read my blog - you have made my venture into 'blogland' very pleasurable.
I started this card with the idea to use this Layers of Color image from the Granny's Jewellery set, set on an oval, with the burgundy scallops on pink card, but the overall layout defied me until I saw this sketch challenge over at Midnight Madness.
I took some liberties, but isn't that what it is all about?, and I ended up with quite a clean and simple look to the card in the end!!
I sponged the edge of the base card with chalk ink - rouge- and the corners were run through the Textile textures cuttlebug folder - I used the negative embossing just to be different. The ovals were both cut with Spellbinders nestabilities classic ovals - do love those nesties!! and the blue sponged on before I removed the oval...
The pearls both on the corners and in the basket are Kaiser half pearls.
I painted outside of the basket and the background to the flowers with Twinkling H2O's before attaching the pearls.
The ribbon is chiffon that I had on hand - recycled if I remember correctly - it's a bit of a standing joke within the extended family that any parcels with ribbon on are carefully undone and the ribbon passed to me....
Thanks for calling by - I do love seeing that you have been,especially when you leave a comment.
