A commission

Hi everybody and a very warm welcome to Rita my newest follower.  This card is a request from my next door neighbour for her grand daughter in Australia.  I have used the braided ribbon again as I think it is a nice embellishment, the cardstock is centura pearl and the edge die is one of the spellbinders loaned to me by my dear friend Jeannie (who unfortunately does not yet have a blog despite the fact that she makes beautiful cards).  The stamp I have used is from Belles 'n Whistles and coloured with promarkers and a little glitter on the wings.  Flowers from Wild Orchid and leaves from Marianne dies.  For the first time I have used Kraft card and I like the look that it gives.

It is a very overcast day here today and since I had family here all day yesterday and consequently never got out of the kitchen all day I am now going to spend the rest of the afternoon playing around with more of Jeannies dies.   Have a lovely day.     Marie-Louise
