Thinking of you, using a digital image

This card is for my Aunt whose husband passed away this time last year and I hope it will give her some comfort to know we're thinking of her.

I used linen card for the base and rounded the top right hand corner.
I printed the sentiment (Jellyka CuttyCupcakes font) on spare card and embossed it along the left edge using a craft concepts embossing folder and the Cuttlebug.
Then I tied pink satin ribbon along the edge of the embossing and rounded the TRH corner of it as well.
I printed the two roses image from A Passion for Stamps and coloured it with Copics.

I have finally managed to do something today that will make cutting out a whole lot easier!!  I can now print and cut with my Craft Robo (only took me 2 years to do it.....) lol
So the Robo cut the roses out in no time :)

I rolled the edges of the roses over a pencil to round them slightly and to give a little dimension. I used pinflair gel to glue them to the card and added 3 tiny pearls.

I hope you all had a lovely Easter ! We went to the beach (Richard and me wearing coats lol) on Easter Monday and it was beautiful. 

We had our first paddle in the freezing sea but when the sea came in higher than anticipated, Richard got his trousers soaked :) Hilarious!!! - though we had to go and buy him new jeans! Next time I'll pack spare clothes for him as well as the children.

Freezing wet legs!

You are thoughtful Sarah, she'll love this delicate card. Love the photos of the family on the beach - aren't they getting big?! Poor Richard - but I bet you were in stitches! Vx
