Next week my friend Peggy is being sworn in as the new Mayor for our town. This recognition is well deserved and my son and I are thrilled to be going to the ceremony. As such I have made Peggy a special card to celebrate as she will have a busy year with the Olympic torch coming through the town, the Diamond Jubilee celebrations planned and the anniversary of the Falklands.....so the card has a patriotic feel using the Papermania new range of papers!
A favourite Marianne Design Die -
craftables butterfly-CR1205 layered and decorated with pearls. Pearl cluster and stamped frame and stamped sentiment with a close up of the machine stitching.
Another favourite Marianne Design Die I always reach for creatables "English Roses"LR0162. These have been edged with gold acrylic paint and two pearl hat pins added. Lace ruffled under my vintage picture which has been given a coat of UTEE for shine.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges please:-
My roses are made from a Marianne Design Die as is my butterfly
All layers including the focal image have been machine stitched
Hoping everyone is having a productive weekend ...warm wishes, Suzanne :)
