Number Two For My Nan and Challenges

Here's the second card for my nan, which will be from my mum and step-dad.


I've used another of Chris Dark's gorgeous digi-stamps, as the flowers are just perfect for my nan, coloured with copics and blended. I've used the Tall Stories Keepsake Board for the card design, much the same as a bookatrix but portrait rather than landscape. Background layer is silver embossed card from Crafters Companion (won this on the One Stop Craft Challenge a few weeks ago), the middle layer is white hammer card and the top layer is paper from K & Co. The sentiment was done on the PC. Blue shimmer ribbon down the centre is from my scraps stash. Due to the patterns and textures I didn't want to over do the embellishments so just added some flat-backed heart and circle pearls. The turquoise/blue is my nan's favourite colour, so I'm sure she'll love this.

I'm so behind with challenges this week so just had a peak to see if this would fit any of the challenges and yipee there are two. The first is ABC Challenge which is 'H is for Hearts', I've used heart gems, so that should qualify. The second is Creative Card Crew which is 'Textures', the scalloped edges are all embossed and the silver card is also embossed, so hopefully this is OK.

Just need to make a box for it now!!
