The theme of this hop is "Celebration".It was chosen by Nikki Smith as she has recently celebrated a "BIG" birthday. We've had quite a few reasons to celebrate in our family recently, including three engagements. Here is the card I made for the latest couple to announce their intentions.
I used papers from MCS Quintessential Country Garden and distressed the edges with scissors. I soaked the panel of lace in cold tea to age it.
The images are two digis from Simply Betty. I used Emma and Mercius and merged them in MCS before printing and colouring with Promarkers. I cut them out freehand and used Antique Linen Distress Ink to colour the background.
I printed the sentiment on the computer, punched it out and mounted it onto a Spellbinder die that I'd inked lightly in brown and rubbed with metallic gilding wax.
I made the embellishments with tags, ribbons, buttons, a peg, a metal charm and more gilding wax.To those of you blog hopping, your journey is now complete.
