Anemone - 10th February


I made this card a few weeks ago and it was based on an design shared by Sue Wilson on her blog. I liked it so much that I had been itching to try it! Firstly, I typed the greeting on white card and then embossed the card top and botton using the a Creative Expressions mask with my Grand Calibur. I started with a white card blank and matted and layered alternately with white and gold mirror card, finishing with the white embossed card.
I  made gold pearl dots on the embossed card with Cosmic Shimmer Olympic Gold.  made the flower using the Spellbinder Anemone die with paper from stash and layed this on top of a bow tied around the top layer with a pretty edged sheer ribbon.

Hope you like it!

An extra note from me....due to having to do a 'proper' job, I usually schedule my posts a week ahead. I had forgotten this card was being posted today and it is very poignant for me to see it...I made it for my 98 year old aunt's birthday a month ago. There was an error made by the post office (I won't bore you) and in the end my cousin (her grandaughter)had to collect it, so it was late. By then aunty had been taken poorly and was in a nursing home. Sadly she passed away yesterday. It was peaceful and she had told me when we visited Sunday that she was ready to 'leave'. She thanked me for my cards, which she always loved to open. So my oldest aunty, the last surviving connection for me to the past is now reunited with her daughter, husband, my Mum and all their other brothers and sisters...sleep peacefully aunty Mabel X
