The Crafty Pad #129

Hi girls. I am pleased to have you here on my blog although in all truth I don't really deserve it. The last few days have been a blur for me. I really think I have overdone things and have suffered for it. I can see William thinking "I told you so" but not saying it. I have tried to do a bit of commenting but haven't managed a lot. Anyway, now you are here I hope you think it was worth the trouble.
I am entering this card into the Crafty Pad Challenge where the theme is "Lots of Texture". The card layout is based on a tutorial I found in the book that came with my Hougie Board. The card is creased and folded to give it depth. The image is Lili of the Valley's "Fairy on Tip-toe". I have coloured her using my copics. The design papers are digis from Nitwits Collections and the punched border was created using a Martha Stewart punch. the flowers are Wild Orchid and the silver corner at the bottom is from my stash.
I would love to know what you think of this card so if you have a minute please leave a comment.
Have a great weekend and enjoy your crafting. Above all stay safe and healthy.

This fold is really pretty and you know how much I love LOTV's! Fabulous! xxD

  23. Oh dear Fiona what a we going to do with you? I'm sure William probably is thinking you over did it but I am also sure he saw the pleasure it gave you and now you know you just can't push yourself that far in future eh. On the other hand I can so sympathise with why you wanted to be out and about especially with the weather have had. Lots of rest and tlc needed for a while now.
    Love the card and the style you used is so pretty I saw this being demonstrated with a Hougie Board a while ago but have not tried it myself yet. The mix of a beautiful image, papers and your embellishments makes it totally worthwhile coming to visit you.
