Card for My Little Bee

Second card made using the Country Companions CD Rom. . . this one for my gorgeous Grandaughter Elizabeth, who will be 7 in February.

As for the previous post for her mum, I've used lilac papers matted and layered, same embossed lilac ribbon and this time used gorgeous image of mouse sitting on top of presents.

I've decoupaged the image but sadly the pic doesn't show this.  Glossy Accents have been used on the image and the little buttons to add some shine.

I'm liking making these cards at the minute so guess I'd better keep on crafting.  It's nice to take time out and make some cards that aren't Christmassy at the minute.

1st post for a while

Not been in the mood for being creative since my dad died at the beginning of November, but felt that I should begin to get back into the mood.  My eldest daughter's birthday is 6weeks after Christmas so thought I'd start with her birthday cards.

For this I've used Docrafts Country Companions which is a lovely CD rom full of little country creatures.

I used some lovely lilac cardstock and matted and layered up various lilac papers, some lovely wide lilac embossed ribbon from a local garden centre. I highlighted the flowers, brads etc with glossy accents to give a lovely shine.  As my daughter doesn't like glitter (makes a mess) I've not used any on this card
and am really pleased with the result.

The pic on the right shows a close-up of the flowers and
the little charms - fan and letter from Meiflower.
