Birthday/Retirement


I am loving these new Digi's from Ladybugcraftsink, they are so versatile and great for Mother's Day, retirements and Birthdays. This image is called Garden Bench Delight I have coloured with a mixture of Promarkers and prisma pencils and some Tim Holtz ink for the sky, I then matted to some pink gingham CS and hand sewed around the edge, I used a craft concepts embossing folder called Budding vine. The DP is from Forever friends, I have used a sentiment strip from Pink Petticoat and curved it across the card. I finished off with some gems for the centre of the flowers, some punched out butterflies, pearls and some flowers from Do crafts. The other sentiment is computer generated.
