In the roll of a die

Today I'm going to share a birthday card I made for a colleague, Rose.  She actually went with me a few years ago when I went to have my ears pierced (yes, I waiting until I was in my 30s to get it done as I'm such a wimp for pain!!!) Anyway, she went with me in our lunch hour and 'held my hand' so to speak.  We then went for a coffee while my heart calmed down! Ever since then I started making earrings and almost all my earrings are ones I've made.  This is a pair I made for Rose's birthday which is this weekend, but she is on holiday skiing at the moment so I made this last week and gave it to her last friday, and have yet to get it onto my blog. 

I used promarkers for the image, but chalked Tilda's dress for a softer look. The scheme is strawberries and chocolate, so pinks and browns.  Hope you like it.


And here is a close up of the earrings which I thought were rather cute, and I think are her style (she likes danglies so to speak!):


I was inspired by the following:
Happy crafting
