Over on the Ismaki Challenge Blog the fab sketch has been provided by Kiki...with the option of using flowers. If you do this you can be in with a chance of winning a £15 gift certificate for The Craft Barn.
For my card I have used one of the new Spring 2009 Stamp Club from Magnolia. I have coloured Tilda with Distress Inks using the following colours....
Tattered Rose (Skin)
Worn Lipstick/Black Soot (Everything else)
For the wings I used H2o and then added some stickles in "Star Dust" over the top.
The papers were all from a random paper pad that I got last week at the NEC HobbyCraft show. The blossoms are by Imaginese and Meiflower, and I added a Doodlebug brad to the middle, the "sweet" ticket is by Teresa Collins.
Below is also a picture of the decorated inside...
I just received the post and more stunning birthday cards arrived this morning from DawnyP and Debby4000 also from my Mother in Law Pam and a lovely card from my Dad....not handmade, but with lovely words inside. If I know my Dad I know that is partially a fluke...LOL Thanks so much to everyone who has sent me a handmade card, they really are amazing.
