Aren't these colours pretty? Soft, subtle and feminine and perfect for my card. Last week I was feeling a bit low and, in fact, had a good cry on Tuesday. I was feeling quite homesick and was just fed up of boxes everywhere. Then, in the post, I got this lovely card (see below) from Pauline - it's absolutely beautiful and it really cheered me up, so I've made my CR84FN53 card for Pauline.
I love the way Pauline has created the background patterns! It's absolutely gorgeous - thanks!!
For my card I started off by stamping the large doily, in aqua, in the centre of the card, masked it and then stamped the background doily pattern in two shades of pink. You may have noticed that I've based the background pattern on my card on Pauline's pretty doily pattern. I finished off with a simple, but heartfelt, sentiment. I've kept to one layer because it is easier to post to the UK. I'm also submitting the card to the One Layer Wednesday - OLW86 challenge, which is to make a card for a woman in your life. Both Pauline and I love Waltzingmouse stamps, and Pauline is a whiz with the doily set, so it seemed appropriate to use that set on her card! So pleased to have OLW back!
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Large Doily, Make Your Mark; There She Goes - Sentimental Thank Yous
Inks: Distress - Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Card from stash
