I want to extend a big welcome and thank you to my latest followers! I'm so very grateful for each and every one of you! I hope everyone is having a great week so far...almost the weekend :o). Hope you get to spend it doing something you love.
Every once in a while, I get asked to make a custom card for someone, and today I have one of these cards to share. This is a retirement card for a lady that my MIL worked with and all the gals in her office wanted a special card for the occasion. Here is what I came up with:
The card and papers are all Stampin' Up, except for the striped one which was in my stash and I'm not sure from which manufacturer. All the edges were distressed and inked with frayed burlap.
White lace and blue ribbon from my stash. The lace on the tag is from Kaiser - it started out white, but I died it blue. The Doily is from Little Yellow Bicycle and the flowers were all white flowers from Pretty Petals. The rose was coloured blue with Tattered Angels glimmer mist in bubbles and then the edges were inked with DI weathered wood. The other two were inked with weathered wood and frayed burlap. The leaves are a Magnolia Doohickey.
I would like to enter this card in the following fun challenges:
Crafting Life's Pieces for the beautiful sketch, which I rotated and flipped
TOMIC - anything goes (and it's their first anniversary celebration! Congratulations!!)
Magnolia Down Under - seeing double (I've doubled up on the lace, the ribbon, the leaf Doohickeys and the little blossoms)
Midweek Magnolias - anything goes
Thanks for stopping by today and thank you for taking the time to leave a comment! I love reading them and love the chance to visit you too!
Have a wonderful weekend!
