For A Lovely Lady

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

When I first saw the images in the Lovely Ladies digi set from MHK Designs, I knew I had to use one of them to create a card for my Grandmother's 95th birthday yesterday.

I've backed the image with a NBUS die, Die'sire Floral Lattice, which I think adds to the classical look.

Card: SU's Wisteria Wonder, Crumb Cake and Whisper White
Ink: Crumb Cake stencilled through the die
Markers: Spectrum Noir FS4 (skin), EB3 and EB4 (hair), HB1 and HB2 (dress and headband), HB2 and HB3 (flowers), and PP2 (lips)
Stamp set: Lovely Ladies from MHK Designs
Tools and embellishments: Die'sire Floral Lattice die, and Clear Wink of Stella for the jewels

March at MHK Designs
#251 AG at Addicted to Stamps and More
#240 AG at Brown Sugar

Whatever you're doing this weekend, have a great one.  I'll be back on Monday with a pictorial, so I hope you'll join me then.
