100th birthday card for Winnie

Hi all 

A crafty friend of mine tagged me into a post BBC Radio Sheffield was making a request for a dear old lady who is coming up 100 years old on May 31st she does not have any family and wanted her birthday extra special. 
So I got my Pollyanna Pickering's world wildlife dvd rom which is available from www.creativecraftingworld.co.uk 

I wanted to make an easel card and also a normal card which had an insert inside, and I decided to make this. 
I used A3 pearlised card cut down to make a 6x6 card
Kraft card for matting
Decoupage, backing paper, insert sentiment and ribbon strip is from the dvd rom
I coloured in clear gems with my brown spectrum noir pen
100 today numbers and word are from tattered lace
The doily is from crafter's companion die'sire range. 
I am hoping she has a good birthday.

Colouring in time

Good morning yesterday I decided that I would print a digi stamp out and sit and colour it in.
The one I chosen was by aurora wings. 
I actually forgot how relaxing colouring in was.
I used my spectrum noir pens and they are as follows

Face: fs1, tn2, tn3
Roses cr10, cr11, dr6, or1,or2
Leaves lg1, lg3
Eye bt2, bt3

I used pearlised card base 6x6
I used black card stock for matting and layering,
Backing paper is an old stock I had in my cupboard
And I used black & green gems.

I think it's time I did more colouring, thank you for looking xx

Good afternoon all, hope you are all having a fab day so far.

Well I decided to make my mother-in-law's birthday card, and decided that I will use products or items I haven't used for a while, so I got my makey bakey cd rom out

I used A3 centura pearl card and folded it to make an A4 card base,
I printed everything from the cd Romans matted it on to silver Matt card,


The 3 buttons I used my circle epiphany with the bubbles, I used the ribbon from my stash,
Mam was cut out using my tattered lace alphabet die, 

Thank you for looking.

Times gone by.

Well I very nearly didn't buy this set, but I fell in love with it as soon as it was demonstrated on create & craft.
I used Kraft card as the base and then measured and decided to make a shutter card,
I used gold mirri for matting, 
I printed the backing paper, and ships from the cd rom.
The sentiments and the globe are from the times gone by stamp set, and used my rock a blocks
The gems were clear and I coloured them with my EB7 spectrum noir pen.


I enjoyed making this card. Thank you for looking x
