A card to share, at last!

Good afternoon, everyone and a Happy Easter to you all!  Well, it's school holidays and with the boys at home, I always find it diifcult to find time for crafting... the week has passed by in a haze of cleaning, washing, hoovering and picking up after 2 messy boys!  I have had a few card orders to fulfill too, so my hands have not been idle!  This creation has taken about 3 days in all due to children's Good Friday Service, flower arranging in church for Easter, a kid's party and the usual grind..so here's what I made...

...I treated myself to some new nesties whilst ordering some more Promarkers - they just happened to fall into my basket!:)  The image is another of my own which will be available in my eshop, as soon as I can get it finished...who'd have thought it could be so complicated and time consuming to create a web shop?!  Not me, that's for sure...in my naiveity, I thought it would just be a case of uploading them and adding pics...if only!  Anyway, going off on a tangent...
...My image is called Golden Oldies and is coloured with Promarkers, cut with standard oval nestie and mounted onto my new Floral Oval nesties - nearly sent these back as I found it so hard to get the shape out of the die, but good old tumble dryer sheets came to the rescue!
 ...The border die is also new and from the Parisian Accents set - love it!  All the papers were just scraps from my stash and all edges were inked with either Walnut or Vintage Photo Distress Inks, or both!  Flowers are a mix of roses and chrysanths from WOC and the little blossoms are made using a flower punch.  I finished with a couple of decorative pins, Marianne swirls, organza bow and pearls...and what's this, no glitter?!  (Well, there is a touch on the pearl centre of the bow!)...
...I decorated the inside with coordinating papers and an oval for writing a sentiment.  So there we have it, something to share, at last!  Hope you like it and thanks for dropping by, enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend!   Lisa X
