Here is my VERY messy desk this week. Isn't it amazing that I can make such a mess with one card! I was working on what I hope is a cheery card for a friend who has a very sick grandaughter. I'm not really a card maker but I want to do a bit more of it as a way of using up scraps and the things I'm not using on layouts but also perhaps to make a little pin money (to put back into stash of course!) It was really nice to play with the stamps, heat gun and embossing powders again but heck I need to clear up before I do anything else!
And here is the finished item. I used my new Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die on some plain cardstock that I had stamped with a Marion Emberson background stamp. I met the lovely Marion at Ally Pally at the weekend and she is as wonderful in real life as she is on the telly with that fabulous laugh!
I embossed the edges of the orange handmade paper with gold powder and followed that through with a little bit just roughly on the edges of the flower. I coated each layer with Glossy Accents and then finished off with a few pearly gems.
So, will it do, do you think? I hope it at least brings a smile to her face and lets her know that I'm thinking of her. I think I'll take a walk to drop it off to her as it is such gorgeous weather today. I'm sure I was wearing a scarf in August and now I've had to get my flip flops out again!
Bye for now
