One I did a while back

I’ve nothing new to post today, I was in an awful lot of pain over the weekend and yesterday so spent most of it in bed as the only relief I get from the pain (apart from being zonked out with all the painkillers) is when I am lying down which is not ideal when I need to get back on my feet to go back to work.  So I thought I would post one of the first cards I did for a magazine commission (lost the very first ones when I changed computers, typical as they were my favourites).

The papers and stamps are from Stampin Up.  When I first saw the papers I had no idea what I was going to do with them, they are so bright for babies cards but once I toned them down with the brown I decided I loved them (so contrary lol).  Even the sentiment is from the paper kit.  Ideal for really quick cards.

Not much else I can say about the card apart from I coloured the pram with Copics – BG11, BG10, BG0000, C5, C3, C1 and used a Martha Stewart daisy border punch and a medium retro flower punch.  The pretty 25mm organza ribbon and pearls are from Wild orchid Crafts.

I hope to be able to get another Lili of the Valley sneak peek finished today to post tomorrow (all coloured, just need to pull the card together).

  33. Oh Bev, I am so sorry you're in such a lot of pain; I know myself it is very debilitating but I hope the painkillers help in some small way and that you improve soon. Your card is just lovely. As you know, of course I would automatically love a card with Aqua used in it. This has such a quiet, elegant look about it - truly lovely.

    Take care
