Rose Garden

Evening peeps

My son has developed a love a photography over the last couple of years, he is continually taking photos of the landscape around him and even if I do sound bias, he seems to have a natural talent for it.  Anyway, I thought I would buy him a camera for his 21st Birthday in October.  It's cost me over 500, but I know he will be over the moon with it, I can't wait to give it to him.


Anyway, I have made a Birthday card tonight with a digital stamp called Roses And Butterflies from Bugaboo Stamps.  I have cropped and coloured it using Copics and ProMarkers.


Other materials used are:

White card stock
Red card stock
White vellum
Die'sire Happy Birthday die
Red gemstone brads
Gemstones


I am entering this card into the following challenges:

With Love Birdie

Evening peeps

Well day two of my new job and I have to say that it's far more relaxed then the last place I worked.  Don't get me wrong, it's still going to be hard work, but you can make a cup of tea when you want (I love my tea) and no one questions if you come off of the shop floor.  Hopefully it will be the right more.


Anyway, I made a quick clean and simple card before I went to work today.  The digital stamp is called Little Birdie from All Dressed Up and it has been coloured using Copics and ProMarkers.
