Another Busy Attempt!

Hi Everyone

If any of you are regulars to my blog then you will know that I crave to make a card like the "Busy" Tilda Cards that you see around Blogland and you will know that I keep trying.  Here is another try lol!

I have a special card to share with you today.  I made it for my friend (and Teamie) for her Birthday.

This is one of her favourite Images.  It's from PPinkydolls and is called Looking For You.  I coloured her using ProMarkers.  I decided to try and have another go at making a "busy" card.  I don't have a lot of success with these (it has been a while since one was successful) and most attempts end up in the bin but I was quite happy with this one.  I recently acquired however some dies that a friend didn't want anymore so I cut all sorts of shapes and decided to have a go.  As most of the dies do not have any packaging I am unable to tell you the names of them.  I can however tell you that there are a couple of Tattered Lace Elegant Flourishes in there and a Marrainne Creatables Flourish!.  I cut the shape of the card using a GoKreate Frilly Frame and I actually used a pretty Kanban Paper but I have covered all of it so you can't see it lol!  The Patterned Paper that the image is layered onto is from Hunkdory.  I have stamped the Birthday Wishes Sentiment from Stampingallday using a Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad.  I added lots of Paper Flowers and finished with Pearl Gems for the Centres and some Clear Pink Flower Gems.
