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!

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #142

This is my DT card for this week's challenge on SECRET CRAFTER SATURDAY CHALLENGE which this week is set by the lovely Francesca. She has chosen a theme of:-

GET WELL SOON

I experimented with this card but stamping the flowers down the side with Versamark ink then heat embossed with Clear Embossing powder. I then used Victorian Velvet Distress Ink around the sides of the card and coming in over the flowers which then highlighted them. I stamped the leaves and sentiment with Peeled Paint Distress ink and cut the Fancy tag for behind the sentiment. The left side of the card looked bare so I embossed with Swiss dots folder. Really please with the classy look.
