Good News

Hi peeps,
I've heard from Kay this morning and she's feeling fine, she had a fairly good sleep and no stiff neck or anything this morning, so that's a relief,
Thanks for your concern, it's much appreciated, and to celebrate I've made a card and I'm slowly getting some candy together for later too lol!

I saw  the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp which is a recipe,
1 image,
2 patterned papers and plain for layers
3 different types of embellies,
I thought great right up my street lol,

I've coloured Tilda with Distress Inks and the usual background too, so love doing this!
my papers are distressed on the edges and machine sewn, another fav of mine,

my card is also sprayed with perfect pearls mist to add a soft sheen, on a picture further down you can see it better,
the gorgeous flowers are my second which has had the stickles and glamour dust treatment,
and the third embellie is my gorgeous seam binding that my lovely friend Mandy sent me  for my Birthday, it's lovely hun, thankyou!
This is where I'm hoping you can see the soft sheen, and the sparkle on the flowers too lol,
the papers are a mixture of Prima Jack n Jill, and a freebie from a craft magazine,
Here's a close up of Tilda lol, I know you've seen enough already lol,
One more to show the flowers and because I'm in a devilish mood lol,

 items used
Antique linen,frayed burlap,tattered rose,weathered wood, victorian velvet and vintage photo Distress inks,
Magnolia Tilda from the latest collection,
Perfect pearls, and prima pearl embellie( bottom left of card) from SSS, with super service too,
Tim holtz distress tool,

Magnolia Down Under ~  Flower Power

Well it's turned into a lovely bright day, which fits my mood perfectly lol,
Have fun!!!
Hugs Liz xx

Oh heck, if you're in a devilish I'd best alert the authorities and have the whole Country on red alert lol.
Hunny I'm so sorry poor Kay was in a prang, I'm so pleased she's o.k you must have all been worried sick.
Your card is beautiful hunny, I love the soft colours, the sweet Tilda, the sparkle, the distressing and how you've 3d'd the sweet butterfly.
