Angelica

Helloooooo.  OMGosh, wasn't it horribly hot this weekend.  I admit that I don't really like hot weather, I much prefer the cold.  I like nothing better than snuggling up in front of a roaring fire with a hot chocolate and a good book.  I know, I'm a freak!!  Really, no need to agree so quickly folks :O(

Anyhoo, onto my card.  Today's card is for a friend who isn't too keen on the heavy embellishments, so I've kept this one quite simple.  I've used Sugar Nellie's Angelica.  She's been coloured with copics and coloursoft pencils.  I cut her out using a Spellbinders rectangle and used Tattered Rose DI with the die still in place to colour the edges.  The patterned paper is from Prima's Tea Thyme collection and I've also used some pearlised cardstock.  The lace is from Wild Orchid and the ribbon is from my stash (check out my previous post).  The little flower is from my stash and the leaves were punched from a Martha Steward Branch punch.  The pearl bubbles were done with a Viva Decor Pearl Pen in Ice White.  The glitter I used is Crystal Art Glitter.


I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
