Just Us Girls

Hello...

I hope your weekend went well... 

Today I'm sharing a card that I made over a week ago to send to a sweet blog friend and it just so happens to fit this week's challenge at




Unfortunately you really don't get to see a lot of the blending given that I added vellum over the top ... 
I used a stripe stencil and tilted it to get the first set of diagonal lines and then tilted it the other way to get the criss- cross effect - Two inks were used, Citron distress ink and Broken China oxide ink


I also used the same inks to blend onto the leaves and the flowers were coloured with copics

So yesterday we drove over to Derbyshire yesterday to visit hubby's granddaughter Felicity - The traffic was manic and it took us 3 hours to get there due to all the road works and congestion...Normally it only take about half that time.

I took the little crochet cat lovey I made for her 
Suffice to say she loved it!




And it was well worth the journey to see that little cutie!

Well, I hope you all have a lovely day

Take care

That is one happy Baby and soo cute and fun to see her enjoying your creations. I love what you did with this card. Letting the corners of your cards peek out from behind the velum with the pretty embossed sentiment creates a fabulous effect. Love it.
