Donna

Good evening ladies how are you all today?
It's a lovely evening here in sunny West Midlands, no wind about though so it is a bit muggy, but as they have forecast rain tomorrow and onwards I am not complaining.  Rain forecast for Saturday too which I could have done without as I am looking forward to going to the C&C craft fayre at Donnington Park.  Still, once I get there it won't matter what the weather is like inside will it!
Well, tonight's card is one I made for my best friend Donna who was 50 this year.  She will kill me for telling you all that but still, what are friends for - hee hee.
I have taken this into serif to display it as the photography wasn't brilliant. 
I started with an 8x8 base white card, matted some pink card on and then embossed some white card and matted that.  The image is a stamp from Dimension Stamps and it is a Lily which is my friend's favourite flower.  I stamped it once and then stamped again to decoupage the flower.  I coloured it in with spectrum noir pens and then glazed it with glossy accents.  I also embossed the stamped image.  I then stamped and embossed the name which is also a Dimension Stamp set of plain alphabet.  That was stamped with a brilliance ink pad.  The pattern is also a stamp but I cannot remember which one - a swirly one.  I then shaped them and placed them on the card with silicone.  Once that was dry I then glazed them with glossy accents.  She was thrilled with it.  Hope you like it too.  Thank you for stopping by and you take care.
