Friends Birthday.............................

Hello crafty people, I'm back again, got lots of cards to be making this month.

This is for a wonderful friend who I don't get to see often enough but always when we meet it's like we've just met last week except there's so much to catch up on. She doesn't read my blog so I think I'm, safe putting it here.

I used some velvet paper and embossed it with a Tim Holtz Texture Fade, retro circles I was quite happy how that turned out, it didn't spoil the velvet nature of the paper but added texture.
The image is from A Day for Daisies
 The sentiment from Happy Daze, Catslife press, Sentiment seals
And the little circle sentiment from Lily of the Valley the new Calendar set
 I used Copics to colour and some Diamond Glaze for the apples.
Gosh that's an awful lot of links! I need to go and make some more(cards, not links) so TTFN, have fun:0)

Simply gorgeous, love the gentle colouring of that pretty yet elegant image. Fantastic colours - I'm definitely a brown girl) and thanks for the inspiration re the velvet paper. I have some and I've looked and thought what the hell am I going to do with that - never thought of embossing it.
Guess what colour it is - yep - brown!!
