New Try

Good morning! I’m off for work in a bit but wanted to share the card I did last night first. Yeah, no date with hubby as planned. I got the migraine by lunch and went home and slept like a baby until late afternoon. We’ll make a new try tonight. Keep your fingers crossed nothing spoils this!!!

Enough of wining, and over to the card instead.

Thinking of You Hibiscus

Used lot’s of scraps on this one and coffee filters for the flowers – that was a first for me, but not the last!!! Tracy made a great flower tutorial over at the Prickley Pear blog  yesterday using coffee filters and the Hibiscus flower and leaf die. I had to try that.

Thinking of you Hibiscus detalI sprayed it with a mist of perfect pearls and vintage photo distress ink and it has a beautiful dimension and glimmer. Thanks Tracy, loved this!!!

The card is based on the fabbie sketch #73 over at Card Patterns. Isn’t it a great one!?!

Sooo keep your fingers crossed for good weather and a nice dinner at a fancy restaurant for me and hubby tonight! Have a great day!

Vad trist att migränen satte stopp för planerna igår, men jag håller tummarna för att ni får en fin kväll idag istället.

Din tolkning av skissen är ursnygg, kortet är jättefint!
kram Annika
