This is my second post today, because I have made two cards for this week's
Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge, where our theme is
'WET OR DRY EMBOSSING'
and this week our sponsors are
I gave this card to a close friend, Sue, on her milestone birthday. The '50' was cut
from a recycled glittery Christmas card, and I put loads of Star Dust Stickles on
her underskirt, but unfortunately it does not show. The Stickles is just visible
around the Labels die-cut on the front and inside of the card.
A close-up look at Jules and her kitty.
A closer look at the flowers and feather. I bought a small bag of the feathers two years ago at a craft show in Farnborough, near London, and I bought that gorgeous velvet and tulle flower from Di's Scrapbook Shop, at The Entrance (about 2 hrs. drive from here).
As usual, I decorated the inside of the card. The dark layer under the embossed panel
looks black, but it is actually the same burgundy as on the front of the card.
