Good afternoon to all my lovely friends followers and visitors today. I hope you are all well and enjoying your weekend.
Our weather today isn't as good as it should be so we decided to go for a little drive out into the country. We found a lovely little farm shop in the middle of nowhere which sold the most delicious looking cakes-well, it would've been rude not to stop and try one with a nice cup of coffee wouldn't it!!
Before we went out I managed to finish this card using a new image bought from Lacy Sunshine.
I used my trusty old cuttlebug to cut her out with an oval die and coloured her with my Promarkers and had another go at sky-this time with my pens instead of the distress inks. It was a bit better than my last attempt but still needs more practice -as does my distressing edges-I do keep trying lol!!
I used papers from a large pack bought at The Works and added a die cut swirl and some leafy shapes (which I thought looked a bit like seaweed) using a Marianne Designs die set . I punched a couple of star shaped flowers and used a sentiment which I got from Netty's card blog-she has some fab freebies available. I love these sentiments as they fit perfectly in my round punch. I punched out a corner of the paper with a large scalloped circle punch as I thought it resembled a scallop shell but now I'm not so sure it was as effective as I thought it would be-sometimes things seem better in my head than they do on paper!
I added some little blue pearls to finish off:
