Just for Fun - Nevaeh

It is rare that I get to create just for fun, but this afternoon it has been peeing down with rain, so after a brief trip out this lunchtime where I got soaked (too windy for an umbrella), I settled at my craft desk to dry out and decided to make something 'just because'!!

It is quite a simple card, but I love creating shaped cards, so decided to use a pretty paper and a lovely teal and brown colour scheme.  I decorated the inside to match, and added some pearls and a sparkly bow.  Other than that, it is quite plain (for me).  Well the paper was glittery, so I didn't want to cover more of it up with embellies, because the image was fairly big (well I just had to print this beauty out quite  large, just to do her justice).  Isn't she pretty!  I love her sad, puppy-dog-eyes expression.


Card Recipe:
  • Image - Nevaeh by Saturated Canary
  • Papers - Isabelle Glittered Papers by First Edition
  • Nesties - Spellbinders Label 18 and Go Kreate large scalloped circles
  • Colouring - Copics & Sakura Stardust gel pens
  • Ribbons - Fantastic Ribbons
  • From my stash -  Pearls
I've been inspired by:
Happy crafting.
