Aren't you all just sick of Christmas cards now? I am, and am so glad mine are all done and posted - now I just need to get the presents bought and I'm set lol. yep, I've not bought a thing yet. Gulp - best get me skates on.
I thought I would make a birthday card for a change, and have used one of the new Sugar Nellies which was a gift from my wonderful friend Rach - thanks sweetie, I love it!! I've use this weeks sketch from Friday Sketchers, fab sketch and one I will use again.
I coloured the image with the usual old Distress Inks and H2O's, I also used the gorgeous watercolour paints that Sally sent me, the burgundy in the set was just the colour I needed for this card.
The flower is part punched, part Prima lol. I punched out a flower using the large Retro Punch and stamped it with a Best Wishes sentiment stamp using Bravo Burgundy ink, sponged the edges of the flower with Bravo Burgundy, then scored 3 lines down each petal, flipped the flower over and scored lines between the previous scored lines IYKWIM?

I've received this award from Kim, if you've not seen her blog you've been missing out big time! Her cards are just breathtaking, so go take a peek.
The rules are to give it to five others, who shall give it to five others.. You shall link the one you got it from, and also the ones you give it to:) And let them know. And there is more... You have to write down five things you are addicted to. I know it is a busy time so I understand if you just pass it on to everyone who visits you blog, but I would like to pass it on to these girlies. I wish I could give it to you all.
