Blue Birthday


Hope everyone is good today? :)  This will be a short post from me, as I think I slept funny and hurt my neck, its sooooo painful, and will be much better off being busy than sitting in front of my pc ;) lol

Now, I've had this image coloured up for a while (I love colouring LOTV!) and finally got round to doing something with it.  I followed the fabby sketch over on I Love Promarkers, and raided my stash for scraps of HOTP papers, card candy, ribbon and brads, and also used scraps for the flowers.  I added stickles and bling for a bit of sparkle ;)

Lovely card Alison, gorgeous colours and love the layout. I have had a go at making those flowers but really struggled with them. You will have to post a quick demo :)

I had a go at that C&S with just a bit of red and I was the same as you, got images everywhere with just that bit of red on and didn't like anything so ended up not making one hehe, they are soooo difficult but do enjoy the challenge.

You sound like me with your neck not sure if it has something to do with sitting colouring in hehe

Take care xx

Paula said...

Take care of your neck Alison. I love those dark blues you've used & the pairing with your image is delightful - the grey goes so well - it sounds like you colour first then do the card so I think I shall have to give that a go - it might be quicker. I love the way you've added those blue gems & a sparing amount of glitter - it highlights so well when done like that.
Have a good weekend & hope the neck is improved by tomorrow.
