For a Special Day



Over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges ,we were given our new theme--- make a
 ' Birthday card for Someone Special'. 
This one is for a dear friends special day coming up soon.  Fortunately for me she doesn't blog , no words are added to draw attention to another year passing, we know, but don't need to tell the world.
I have layered up the main focal image with a variety of papers, one distressed with  my blunt scissors.. The image is from  a Stampers Anonymous set, heat embossed to make colouring easier. I used a few layers of water colour paints to try to reach the colour of the flowers. Trimmimings added and its ready to go.
Please pop over to see what my design team sisters have been making and get all the details, including the prize on offer from our regular sponsor.
 We ask you remember we need to see a stamped image as the main focus.

Thank you for stopping by the comments you leave me are always appreciated.

  2. Stunning card Yvonne! Though I love this stamp set, I don't find it easy to use, it is flying around mostly un-inked, but I really adore what you have done here! Such a great idea to let the butterfly match the colour of the roses! Beautiful layering too, you have really inspired me with this one!
