Framed corcopsis

Hope you all had a good week, but thank goodness the weekend is upon us!  I made this card a couple of weeks ago, with someone special in mind.  Today, I am able to share, since it is my BFF's birthday today, and I had delivered her card a few days ago.

I used Power Poppy's Vibrant Thanks set, and pulled out the beautiful corcopsis image to colour.




I used prisma colour pencils to colour, and then pulled out some copic colours to do some dot shading around the image.

I used MFT's stitched square frame dies for my framing.  Paper is from MME - Indie Chic - saffron - another old paper pack from 2012! - some papers are just hard to part with, but I'm getting better.

For finishing touches, I added some silk ribbon along the bottom, a couple of enamel dots and a clear acetate butterfly (something else from my stash that I seem to forget about!).  Also added some glitter to the centers of the flowers.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend! See you soon,
Pauline

Gosh, how beautifully you matched those pretty papers with your coloring! Love the framing. Such a simple image but it looks completely outstanding as the focal point of your card. No sentiment on the front and I love that, too. I always want to make sentiment-free cards, but struggle with it. Yours looks absolutely perfect. Gorgeous, Pauline!

I wish everyone could see the actual card. It is even more stunning when you see the actual card compared to the picture. Everything about this card is perfect - colouring, paper, frame, ribbon, enamel dots, butterfly, ribbon and I can go on. Best of all it is the person who made it that makes it so special. This card is going in my keepsake box along with the other precious ones I have received from you Pauline. Many hugs and thanks. Nancy

Oh my... This is so dainty feeling. The papers are so pretty and the die cute frame layers frame your beautiful flowers perfectly. Not to mention your coloring is awesome! Beautiful.
