Konichiwa

Even though I have been down today and said that I wouldn't make a card, because of my boredom and obvious mood swings, Lianne set up the kitchen table with all my craft essentials and ordered me to sit down and make a card. Usually I like to stand up and craft but she told me to try it whilst sitting down, and I have to say, I think I did alright. It certainly alleviated my boredom for all of thirty minutes and it did cheer me up just ever-so-slightly.

Anyway, the digital image is another of Mo's (now there's a surprise), which I coloured in with watercolour pencils and mounted onto black cardstock with a very small border.  The jade and pink papers were enclosed in my 'goodie bag' from Craftwork Cards as well as the birthday greeting.  I cut the pink swirly paper with my Big Shot (well Lianne did the rolling once I had positioned it... definitely can't do that yet!) and then I added the ribbon charm, the ribbon, the flowers and the gems.

The colours all worked perfectly together I think and I just love that the papers from Craftwork Cards have a slightly metallic sheen to them and are foiled of course, which definitely adds a luxurious quality to them.  Anyway, that's me done for the day, Hope you like it?
Thanks for dropping by.
Hugs, Fae xxx

Lovely card and I think Lianne did the best thing making you craft. Hope you are feeling a bit better today
