Just for Janette

Good afternoon yes me again are you feed up with my blog yet. I hope not. I have just realised that I hadnt blogged my friends card/ calender which I made for her birthday in February. I had sent her a gift for her birthday early so wanted to make something a little different as it was kind of present come card. So I found some calenders which I hadnt got round to making up and decided I would make her one. Now Janette likes to play with paper and make thing so I decided I would not colour a image but try something out of my comfort zone. I added her age can you find i kind tried to blend it in but you have to make it dont you.
DP is K & CO lots of gold mirri card, Bronze Gilding Wax and distressed inks, Create a Card Steam Punk card base. Brads and gold peel off numbers

Well what do you think she did say that she loved it so guess I succeeded but then she is a friend. I got really messy and really quite enjoyed myself. I guess it is nice to come out of your comfort zone once in a while

This week the theme has been picked by Kim who sadly stepped down due to her very busy life. So this week our lovely boss lady Carol is hosting it. We are still doing Kims theme as we loved it soo much. Yes she has come up with a fab colour combo for you all to follow.

So onto my card using one of our sponsors images

I have printed the image onto some Pearlised cream card then coloured with promarkers and added some glitter to the centres. The sentiment is from a freebie from TLC.(thanks Pauline)
Pearls and the diecut butterfly is from Tonic. The frame is a Quickutz frame die set. Some gold glitter on the edge of the card.
Something a little different for me as i dont make many cards just featuring flowers so comments will be welcome. I do hope that you will come and play along as i think this colour combo is such a lovely bright and fun one.
