A Friend's Birthday Card

Hi there

Sadly our long weekend draws to an end, hope you all got lots done, not me :( I have had a very lazy weekend all my plans went out the window for some reason!!!!

Today I have for you a card I made out at our Raincliff Scrap Camp back in August for Bo (who actually had a helping hand in its making as I was sitting beside her, so Bo was my sounding board for my ideas, at least I knew she was going to like it :) )

This is my first real attempt at using my Spectrum Noir pens and I was very slow at the colouring, but on the whole pretty happy with the result! The stamped image is from Lily of the Valley called Best Friends sooo cute (but then they all are!!!)

A few close ups, I think I followed a layout of one of my favourite card makers Bev Rochester

The Spectrum Noir pens are new on the market and are available at Crafters Companion from the UK, they had an awesome special release price which came to only $NZ2.00 each so I had to get the whole set for that price, in comparision the Copic Sketch pens cost approx $NZ8-10.00 each you can see why it was a no brainer :)

The inside of the card....

The papers are from Magnolia which I also love such pretty delicate patterns.

Close-ups of the insides......

The dragonfly and swirl above and the border die below are Magnolia Doo-Hickey Dies

and the back.......

The circle die is from Cheery Lyn and is the French Pastry Die and my personalised stamp fits perfectly in the middle.

I hope you have injoyed looking at this card, thanks for stopping by.
