Surprise ... no flowers!!

Good morning all!!  
          Well...... On my post a couple of days ago I set my self a challenge to make a shadow box card with no flowers on it as nearly all of my cards contain flowers and lots of embellishments, and this is what I came up with, and I am actually quite pleased with it, I made this card for a regular customer of mine, she asked for 4 shadow box cards, but all different with no stamped images, so over the next few days i will share what i create ...

                           I have used tilda papers from The country Escape 12 x 12 pad.                                                             The pad comes with a few sheets of die cut embellishments which
                                i have added around the frame... the sentiment is from 
                                                          Lily of the valley

Here is a close up of the flowers which I have covered with glossy accents, I love the 3d effect this product gives

Thanks for stopping by
                                                                 it means a lot xxxxx

                               I am entering this card in to the following challenges......

                                  SCRIBBLE AND SCRAP  ... Anything goes

Tilda with chanel the puppy .. Book card!!

Good afternoon to all you lovely crafters, cant believe it's snowing, im not a massive fan of snow to be honest, my girls would cringe if they heard me saying that lol..... its nice when you can sit indoors and watch it but when you have to go out and drive in it, which i have to do as i'll be starting work soon, then it's not nice.
                        But first i would like to share a book card that i recently made, using Tilda                                             with chanel the puppy, i haven't made one of these for a few month
                                                             so really enjoyed it ....

                                I coloured her up using copics, here are the colours i used......
                                               Skin... E000, E00, E11, E20, E22
                                               Hair... E57, E53, E51
                                               Dress... R85, R83, R81
                                               Puppy ... E44, E42, E41, E40                                                                     


                                   I have used maja design vintage summer basic papers

The scrummy lace and flowers are from The ribbon girl and the beaded sprays are from Live and Love crafts....

I added gesso to the flowers to give a more shabby look to them....

                        Here is a close up of that adorable image, it so reminds me of my youngest                                          daughter, the bow you can see in the top right hand corner is a sue wilson die.

                      Well i better get a move on and brave the cold and snow to go to work...

Good morning to all you lovely crafters.... gosh it's so good to be back, this is my first post of 2015 as i haven't been able to post any cards on here or look round your lovely blogs as through changing broadband providers we havent had internet for nearly two weeks, i've been having withdrawal syptoms lol ...

     Here's my card and yes ..... its another shadow box card .... i really enjoy making these
                            I have used tilda with spring heart, she is so cute ...

I have coloured her in copics ....... the colours i used are,

                                             The papers used are from are My Minds eye, 
                                                          lost and found, Record it...

                     Here are some of the scrummy flowers and flatback pearl trim used from                                                             The Ribbon girl, the beaded sprays and pearl hearts are from
