CCT 48 - Signs of Spring

Sunday, 22 February 2009
I'm not sure if this card qualifies for this weeks Cute Card Thursday Challenge, but I'll enter it anyway! The theme is Signs of Spring and could be interpreted as an image, embellishment of colour scheme. I'm hoping the colour scheme will apply in this case!!

This card is for a colleague at work. She requested something for her neighbours daughter with a ballerina. I thought the gorgeous Tilda from the Magnolia Pink Collection was perfect. She's been stamped on Bristol Board Extra Smooth and coloured in with copics before being cut out. The base is made up of two colours of Core'dinations cs (don't know colours) mounted onto a card blank. Some white cs has been embossed with the D'vine Swirls folder and layered onto the darker cs before being added to the base. I was panicking because I didn't have any ribbon to match, so coloured some white ribbon in with one of my copics before wrapping around the middle of the image. I added some gemstones to the flower centres to make it stand out a bit. The flowers are Prima and have also been coloured with a copic pen. The sentiment is computer generated and added with 3d foam pads.

I hope my friend likes it!

I can't believe that the weekend is almost over! It seems to be gone in the blink of an eye.

Hope you've all had an enjoyable weekend, and thank you for any comments you may leave, they are greatly appreciated.
