Sunday

ivory on ivory

Hi all , 
I hope you are having a fab bank hol weekend. We had planned a few things but I've done something to my back and at the moment I'm walking around like Quasimodo :(  So our plans haven't come to much ..oh well!

I've made this card for my mum and step dads wedding anniversary on Tuesday


It's an 8x8 card made from papermill direct ivory card
I scored the background into a lattice pattern using my hougie board
I stamped the flowers and mat with antique linen DI with a flourish
The swirls/leaves is cheery lynn fancilful flourish die
flowers are Tim Holtz tattered florals die
I added a bit of stitching a few inked edges and some gems to finish.
Ideally I would have liked to have printed the sentiment lighter but as  you may know if you are a regular visitor to my blog that my mum has very little sight so I wanted her to be able to see it  and that's also the reason I wanted to add so much texture :)

Thanks for stopping by today
Kerry x
