Well the weekend has flown by far too quickly.
Yesterday was spent doing lots of boring household chores. But my Mum and I did manage a visit to our local craft shop. Went out last night with some friends to see a band at our local pub. Had a really good night but feeling tired now as it was a bit of a late night.
I have managed to get some crafty time in today. Most of it is DT work so can't reveal just yet. I did however get this card made. This will be for my Mother-In-Law's birthday in November. She doesn't look at my blog so no fear of her seeing it.
This is a stepper easel card. I have had the card blanks for ages. I bought them at a craft show but I really can't remember which one and who I got them from.
The rose paper used is from Prima (Botanical Collection) and was a free paper pack I got with a craft magazine. I matted this onto peach coloured coredinations. The rose image was another freebie with a magazine. I matted the image onto a die cut shape from the same peach coredinations. I added a strip of lace along the bottom of the stepper. This lace is gorgeous and if you look closely I threaded some ribbon through the lace.
The stopper was created using the same peach coredinations and rose paper. I added a large sentiment that was also free with a magazine.
I then just went crazy with embellishments. I did add some stickles to the roses and glitter to the butterflies for some added sparkle.
Here is another view:
