I'm much later than I intended with this post, as I had a visit from Her Majesty's Constabulary last night which kinda halted the card making process... don't panic, I wasn't being arrested, and all was well with friends and family, but a couple of neighbours had found their outbuildings had been broken into and tools and things stolen... luckily we were OK, but an odd feeling nevertheless to know out of the four properties in my out-in-the-middle of nowhere two have been robbed.... hmmm little gits (I don't actually mean little gits... insert your own... err.. description of this sort of a person!!) that did it, I have no words as to what they deserve to have made an eighty year old couple so frightened and scared :-( HB is beefing up our security immediately, but am more worried about the size of our insurance renewals with a 50% crime rate!
Anyway, so I had a disturbed eveing last night when I was supposed to be putting the finishing touched to my card and taking piccies, so had to finish my card off tonight.
As it is week two of this weeks LCI's new release of images, blog hop and "add a number" challenge, I decided to use one of the new Through the Ages Digi's, this time I used the "21" image, which I think is suitable for male and female celebrations. If you haven't linked your special celebration (birthday, anniversary etc... ) card yet, click here to enter, or to join in with the blog hop - entering either or both the challenge and the blog hop gives you the chance to win loads of prizes and images - check the rules on the site for more details
I coloured my image with copics and then got busy with the glitter (on the "2" the bottle top and the bubbles) and glossy accents (on the bottle and glass). I stitched my image and the MME papers to a latte coloured Bazzill CS, then added lace and ribbon...hmmm maybe the lace maked this one a bit more girly, but the colour scheme doesn't scream girly-girl... does that make sense?? No just me then :-D I've layered the completed panels on a Kraft card blank... no idea why but I just could not get a pic to show the true colour of the ribbon which is in reality a pale olive, it just looks gold here!!
Hope you like it - remember you still have a week (nearly, cos I'm late with this post!!) to enter the challenge and blog hop
