A Birthday Card.....

Good morning everyone.  I hope you are set to have a wonderful weekend!  This morning I wanted to share a card I have made to enter in Joan's Gardens Weekly Card Challenge #12.   You can visit Joan's blog here:  joanscreations.blogspot.com she has all the details posted if you would like to play along.  Please forgive the photo....no matter how I twisted and turned the card, I still got a shine on the photo.  That's what happens when you use a shimmer paint.  I'm sure there is a way to combat this, but I don't have a clue.



Inside of the card.....



I made a window card using a Spellbinders Die and decorated with flowers of different colors.  My card Base is just some acrylic shimmer paint mixed with some Victorian Velvet  Distress Ink and dabbed onto the cardstock using seran wrap.    My cameo is a free picture from the Internet.  I kept sizing it until I had the perfect size to use the Spellbinders Oval frame I made.  Did you spy my new tag die from Spellbinders?  I just love these and use Spellbinders on most everything I do.  This one is from Fancy Tags Two.  My paper on this is a free digi that I used Victorian Velvet to sponge onto the wrinkles after I scrunched it up. 

I hope you enjoy this card!  Now go play and enjoy the weekend!  I want to thank everyone for their kind wishes for Maggie....She is much better and almost back to her old self.

The cameo almost looks dimensional. This is a gorgeous window card Glenda. The flowers are arranged so beautiful around the bottom of the window. Yes, I did notice that tag right away -- something else I am going to want. Thanks for joining us again in the challenge at Joan's Gardens.

The very first piece of jewellery I ever got was a cameo, and I've had a thing for them ever since. Beautiful work, and I'm so glad Maggie's doing better!

GORGEOUS window card !!! Your work is simply over the top amazing !!! This is truly a work of art with the scrunched up paper (how do you make it look so great)? Mine would look just like WADDED up paper & yours looks super.
Love all your hand made flowers on your other posts too.

Glenda, this is stunning!! Love that cameo and all of your texture and glimmer is perfect. So glad to hear the good news on Magpie....been thinking about her. We have to take our oldest cat to the vet in the morning. She seems to be losing her eyesight and we don't know if it is just age or a more serious problem. Hoping for the best.
