A little bit of gothika

Hi Everyone
Hope you are keeping dry, still raining here in Kendal.
Tried something a bit different today. I love the image
it was great to colour.
I made the gold background card by sticking masking tape in rows overlaping
and dabbed gold over it then embossed with an m-bossing folder, very way out for me,
and the Csoke can ha shown it self again along with some glitter card that was going to
be throw away, as it was all scratched, but I had to finish it off with a flower.
using black  felt and a spellbinder die.
Would love to know what you think

Well thats me done for today off for a glass of wine and watch
James Bond with OH, now isn't that thrilling.

I will be entering this into the following challenges

Evie's birthday

Hello to all my wonderful crafty friends
First I would like to say hello and welcome to my blog, to all who have
just become followers, I hope you like my cards, and I will be paying you a visit soon,
if I have not already.

this card is for my Nieces daughter, she is 5yrs, and is a girly girl who loves
all pinks and lilac/ purple and mauves  colours.  Because, I couldn't put a lot of the embellishments
I would usually use, like stick pins etc, I tried to put more texture onto it by using
micro beads, glue dots and feathers.
Hope you like what I have created.would love to read your comments

have been told it will take me a while to get back to normal!!! ( I knew I was pushing
my luck cleaning all the windows.)

Taking a look at the 1st card I have done in a while, I think my brain has gone walk about,
