Emily's Card

As ever, I’ve not been very well once again –unfortunately after a good run of late, I ended up back in hosp from last Wed through Sun with another suspected chest infection which thankfully wasn't the case.  So hoping that's my token admission for the year as it just reminded me of all the tough issues I dealt with last year, which I really don't want to repeat any time soon!

This one is the card I made for my wonderful 2nd (step) granddaughter, the firstborn of my youngest stepdaughter Christine, who turned 2 a while back.  As I couldn’t afford to buy her much in the way of presents I figured a keepsake card might be nice, and as she has a lovely little kitten to enjoy, this seemed the perfect design. As usual, it’s a beautiful Morehead image decoupaged up on 2 diecuts.

The background paper was matted onto a pink holographic iridescent card.  I used a small section of lace underneath pink ribbon behind the image, and used another diecut to mat the greeting onto.  Flowers as ever come from Wild Orchid Crafts & the MS branch greenery courtesy of a wonderful lady on Ebay.

On the inside I created a pocket into which to put the greeting  (along with the money in an envelope).

All in all hopefully a card that will be enjoyed by Emily in years to come as much as by her mum now.

I'm entering this into last week's WordArt Wednesday challenge despite (for once) it not having any WordArt :( - put it as a footer instead :).



 To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches 
of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
