TRULY SCRUMPTIOUS CHALLENGE 3 - ADD SOMETHING SHINY
My 4 year old daughter Seren has been off Nursery today as she is not very well - hopefully just a 24 hour bug. I managed to get this card done as she has been asleep most the day (just hope she gets some sleep tonight!). For this card I decided to use my latest stamp addition Flowers by Sugar Nellie and coloured her in with Promarkers for a change. I used some pink and blue papers from the DCWV Glitter Spring Stack and used my Woodcare edge cutter on the blue paper. To represent some of the shiny element required I used some shiny red card from my stash and cut out a smaller curved rectangle with my Nesties. The circle is cut from paper from K & Co Recycled Remake Berry Pinks Mat Pad. The flowers I had in a RAK from Colleen. I used some Papermania glittery mini brads for the flower centres. The ribbon is from Hobbycraft. I computer generated the sentiment to make it more personal for my nan who is now in a nursing home. Since February she has virtually lost half her weight weighing now 9 stone and has to have pure oxygen as she has lung cancer. She is a very frail old lady now but still think of her as she used to be before. My nan was the person who first inspired me to make cards as she used to make all her cards herself.
