When the super talented Bev Rochester posted this card I commented that it was ideal inspiration for my mum in law's birthday and this is what I came up with.
I've tried to make it as different as I could, but it's not easy with such a large chipboard frame as this one, which I bought from Live and Love Crafts. It was too big to go on a 6" square card so I had to make one slightly larger than that (but not a square one).
The paper is LOTV which I distressed and stitched round the edges, a first for me, but it came out well on my machine. I then tore the two corner pieces and slid a bit of lace under one, but you can't see it very well. I glittered the frame and stuck on the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, as well as the little dragonflies. I stamped two separate sentiments onto vellum and attached it to the middle. I did have a go at putting some gesso on but chickened out as I didn't want to mess it up after it had taken me ages to do so you probably can't see it!
Her birthday's on Saturday so I hope she likes it.
