Finally I had time to put my idea to paper. It has been a bit of hectic week. I had to entertain 32 kids between 6-12 years of age in making cards for christmas. So, I had to make some preparations on Monday and Tuesday.
I had this idea the first time I saw the challenge to make your own portret over at Paint your World, but had to put it at the back of my mind. Monday, however, when I saw this nice pink daisy paper, I just could not resist. I just felt like making something dainty. We celebrated 13 years of marriage on Monday and the other day, I heard, that when the silence between two people is in harmony, that says the most and not what is said in words. And, I believe it to be true, whether it be friends or lovers. With the year running to a close, it is also a time to rethink the year passed, a time to become silent within yourself. With us, in our summer holiday season, it is probable easier than with our fellow crafters in the northern hemisphere.
Now, for my card. With the frame I've used some heat embossing in pink, the stamp is from DTM Loisir Créatifs, the image is Lily & Milo, from Rachelle Anne Miller, distributed by Stampavie. I printed on pink vellum and used some pergament perforating on the edge. The tread is some white glitter embroidering thread and the swirl is punched in some pink hologram paper. The flowers are from my stash.
I had my hubby in mind when I started, since the times with him is prescious, but I doubt whether he is into pink, so it will end up at my friend, to say thank you for her presence in my life.
