One For My Nan

It's my nan's 80th birthday on the 14th April, she is flying up to Scotland to visit my mum and step-dad for a couple of weeks this afternoon. As a surprise my mum is holding a little get together for her this coming Saturday, and as an extra surprise myself and my youngest brother are also going to be there. Well Steve and myself will actually be surprising her on Friday when we arrive at my mum's.
Anyway, I need to do two cards for her and here is the one from us.

The image is a gorgeous digi-stamp by Chris Dark, coloured with Twinkling H2O's and a waterbrush, I've also added a few dew drops using some 3D glaze.

Cut out image and gold matting using Labels '2' nesties then stenciled a gold rim around image and inked the edges in red. Sentiment was done on the PC and again cut-out using the label nesties.

Paper is K & Co and the red rose panel is organza type material with printed red roses, I bought this material in different colours and designs back last year and have only used recently. Added some gold ribbon going through the sentiment.

To finish I've stamped some swirls in red (though they look brown in the pic) to the top corners and added three tiny red gems.

Thank you for visiting and your coments are much appreciated. xx
