Please bare with me for this blog post. Max has been home sick with his usual Winter chesty cough for the past few days, and over the last 2 hrs I've developed a very sore throat and feeling awful as the night goes on. I just wanted to get this linked before I crawled off to bed, so there may be the odd mistake.....
Luckily I have my own set of Addie's Garden, so was able to create my own card design for this challenge. I always go straight to the flowers when I use this set, so wanted to do something different and concentrate on the leaves instead. Would love to know what you think:
I haven't used my pencils too much recently to colour, so I sat with Max on his bed this afternoon and coloured away while he played on his PS3. I had also stamped the flower on some white CS and coloured that as well with some pink pencils. After cutting a panel of white CS the same size as the card front, I die-cut the 'hi' from it and then popped it up with lots of foam tape. I fussy cut the flower and adhered to the card along with the sentiment (on foam tape) and some sequins.
I'm so very happy with how it turned out and can't believe the leaves look (to me) almost 3-dimensional, as if they are sticking out over top of each other!! But maybe that's my very sore, sick and tired eyes hallucinating....
Along with the 'Addie's Garden' stamp set, I used the sentiment from 'The Big, the Bold and the Happy' and the sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh.
I'm going to link this to Seize the Birthday Challenge where I've added the topping of 'Dimension'.
Will also link to the AAA Card Challenge # 65 where they are celebrating their 2nd birthday!! I've always enjoyed this challenge, so here's to many more birthdays to come!!
Right, I'm off to bed! Can't imagine Max will be going to school tomorrow anyway, so if I wake up feeling like death, it won't matter. Hopefully he will be feeling better and can look after me for a bit!! Wish me luck!
