I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Double Challenge Card

This card fits two challenges this week:-

  1. Just Magnolia - Lace Borders
  2. Sketchy Colours #27 - Green/Purple/White

The card is an order for friend at work. He saw a card I made a while ago for a crafty friend at work and loved it and wanted a card the same. I don't like making EXACTLY the same cards so tweaked a little with the shapes, layout and as it is for an Asian lady I had to change the skin and hair colour too. First time I have attempted Asian skin tone - hope it's ok?!?!?


Image: Magnolia
Papers: Basic Grey Kioshi from Secret Crafter
Medium: Promarkers and Sakura stardust
Sentiments: Made on PC in Word
Tools: Cuttlebug, circle and scallop circle nesties, Woodware circle and fern punches, MS Doily Pinch
Others: Lace, gems and flowers from stash
