I Baked a Cake

Anybody still there? I know it has been a long time ... what with my health, doing two courses at university as well as work and driving lessons, life for me is a bit hectic right now, hence my lack of creating and blogging. First off I hope you are all well? I'm here to share with you the card I have made for my mum's birthday. Yes, I have wiped the dust off my Copics and combined them with my latest goodies from Die to Die for and had a play ...

I have used one of the very cute bear stamps from Lili of the Valley, this is the one with the cat but I have masked him off. I have then coloured with Copics and cut out using one of the new Nestabilities dies, these are called Lacey Circles. I have then added the image to the base with DST. The base has been made by layering MME Lost and Found papers (these are delicious!) to a white card blank. I have then added flowers to the side; the pink ones are Prima Fairytale Roses and the creamy/pinky one is from Wild Orchid Crafts and the stem ones are from my stash. Finshed off some pearlyness and a greeting from the WRS Girly Greetings set.

STAMPS: Lili of the Valley, Wild Rose Studio. INK: Memento Tuxedo Black. CS: Anita's, My Minds Eye. ACCESSORIES: Nestabilities dies, organza ribbon by Ribbon Oasis, pearls from The Hobby House, Copic Markers.
