Because I Care……with a twist

Boy have I been busy this weekend.  I mentioned in my last post that I was planning on getting into my “Crafting Cave” very soon.  I have spent a lot of my holidays blog hopping getting lots and lots of inspiration for fantastic projects and making me very, very eager for Stampin Up!’s Sale-a-bration to begin.

Today I want to show you a card I made yesterday and last night.  I was up until 2.30am working on this little beauty.  I am incredibly happy with how it turned out.  I cased it from Gayle Wheeler at  Gayle’s card was a wedding card but I wanted mine for a birthday card for a very dear friend of mine so I changed it up a bit.

Hope you like it.

Isn’t it pretty?  I think so.  I love how the flower head turned out, especially the different shades of colour.  Believe it or not these little flowers have only been inked in one colour, although they look like several colours.  Clever trick hey?

Here is a close up of the flower head so you can see the colour and detail better.

I randomly added some small pearls just to make it a bit more feminine.  The pale pink organza ribbon just looks so pretty too.  Look how good I am getting at making bows Shan……. tee hee.  I originally only had one layer on the leaves but felt they weren’t prominent enough so I texturized a second layer and secured them with mini dots.

I am currently working on another project, which I started yesterday but is taking much longer to complete.  I am hoping to have it finished either today or tomorrow so I can’t show you any photos just yet, but lets just say I am up to my elbows in crackle medium and paint…… 🙂

Thanks for visiting.
