My Sweet Friend...

Hi again, this is Susan, I am working from a sketch today, I love working from sketches they help the process of design to be a little easier and leave all the fun bits for you. I have decided to enter this creation into the Friday Sketchers #102 by Tanja.

Today I used for my backing papers a selection from a couple of Artylicious CD's called Filigree Fusions and Butterfly Bliss. I love using the backing papers from these CD's they never fail to impress me.

I distressed all the edges of the papers and glittered them.

I used a cuttlebug die for the corner swirls.

My image is a Sarah Kay design that I coloured in using Pro-Markers.

My label I made myself on the computer, I distressed the edges and glittered them.

The flowers are a mixture of my own and some from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Thank you for looking at my creation, I hope you like it.
Love Susan

  8. Hi Mam,
    What a gorgeous card you've created again. I love the paisley paper, it's so delicate and your flower arrangements are really eye-catching. You both always place everything so well and precise, you're both so clever.
    Love the lilac colours on this card, another beautiful girly colour. Great job Mam x
