Crafts 4 Eternity - Recipe #14

Hi all, it's great to have you visiting me here on my blog. I hope you find something that will not only please the eye but maybe even stimulate your own creative juices. Your taking the time to come here is very much appreciated.
I'm still under the weather but feeling better and glad to be back blogging. The snow is still here and it's so cold that we'll have it for a while yet. So much for wishing for a white Christmas. Lol.
Anyway I did this card for the latest Crafts 4 Eternity challenge where we were required to use their sketch as a basis for the card and add some stitching, faux or real, and use a blue and white colour combo. I inked up Magnolia's "Tilda Laying on her Belly" and coloured her using my Copic Ciaos. The papers are a mix of blue shades of Bazzil and Rayher Hobby GMBH. The corners are cut out of silver mirra card using a cuttlebug die and the flowers and fronds are from my stash. My stitching is faux stitching - I'm afraid energy levels did not inspire me to get out my sewing machine.
I do hope you like this card enough to leave constructive comments. I find them so encouraging and helpful and really appreciate that it takes time to leave them. They are truely valued.
I hope you enjoy your crafting day.

Hugs,

  7. So glad to see your feeling a little more in the land of the living now, I do feel for you as I know too well that when we feel unwell in yourself your back always seems to feel worse than ever.
    Love the card and great use of that sketch I tohught that would make for some interesting cards when I saw it. Tilda is gorgeous as always and those flowers with a hint of colour really bring out the blue tones.
