Hi all, don't faint but I have another card that I recently made to show you, I have used a Paper Shelter image called 'In the 20's' this was one of the first digi's that I ever bought from TPS.
I have coloured her with Copics then cut her out, I mounted her onto the card with silicone so that she does not lay flat,  I used an 8 x 8 scalloped card for the base, the black card has been embossed then covered with some gold gilding wax, the papers are SU, I added a sentiment border, I have also added one of my crochet flowers, this one is supposed to represent an Oriental Red Poppy, the first small red layer flower I crocheted following a tutorial from Mandy at Little Birdie Secrets, I then completed a larger layer that I made up myself, finally I crocheted a black centre and green leaf. 
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
I would like to thank you for visiting, I hope that you like my card and bless you for any comments that you leave.
See you later.

This is lovely, what a sweet image, I love the colour scheme you have used. The guilding wax looks fab, I really must try this. I think your crochet flowers are fab and this poppy is outstanding.

scrappymo! said...

Wow...that black and red really pops off the page. Your flower is fabulous and I love the gilding wax. Haven't tried that yet.
Thanks for stopping by my blog...I sure enjoyed every one of those cards. I am trying to think of a way to permanently display them...thinking of a thin wire up high across my walls and hang them like a clothesline!!! I have several others I received since I started blogging and it seems a shame to hide them away!
Hope things are going well with you...I always feel energized when the work is done and there is actually a place to sit out and relax...can't wait to colour out on the patio!
