CCM 130 Something Old, Something New

Our first challenge of 2015 at Crafty Cardmakers is Something Old, Something New.

130 Something Old Something New

I have used a Stamping Bella Stamp, Abigail the Artist for my ‘something new’, and coloured her with copics. My papers are from Bo Bunny, and the diecut ribbons are Our Daily Bread Borders. My ‘something old’ are the pearls, which I have had in my stash for a long time. I coloured these with some of the colours in the image to match. The sentiment is also part of the stamp set. I didn’t have any background paper that matched for the outside layer and the ribbon diecuts so I coloured my own with one of the greens Y11, I think, that I used in the image. The outside layer has also been glittered with glamour dust.

It’s my Daughter’s 31st Birthday today  and this card is for her. She is very arty and loves drawing etc. so as soon as I saw this image I thought of her. She is not much into frippery and girly, girly things, which is why there are no flowers or other embellishments apart from the pearls.
