Joanna Sheen/Thomas Kinkade cd Birthday Card

Hello there again bloggin peeps,

Been quite a while since my last blog, have still been card making just forgetting to blog about it. 

A lot of things going on at work, overtime and shift changes just take their toll on ability to sit still at the computer long enough to blog.

Anyway a pretty 8x8 square with a lovely image from the Thomas Kinkade cd from Joanna Sheen made for a church friend of my sister.  I printed some backing paper from the cd too the lovely green stripes.

I matted the backing paper onto gold and then glued the orange ribbon onto the front so the ends would be hidden behind.  I then stuck this onto my card base. I matted the topper which I had printed from the same cd and matted that onto gold and glued to the top of the card.

I used a cheery lynn die cut and added some spellbinders die cut leaves into the middle of it.  I cut some spiral flowers from another spellbinder die from orange and red paper and assembled them onto the card glued it all into place and posted a little sentiment into the middle of them.

Not quite sure why I decided on orange, green and red I think it came from the picture with the green from the foliage and the orange from the lights in the church and red from the trees in the background.  

It all seemed to come together at the end anyway and her friend liked it so I was pleased lol.

Anyway until next time,

Take care
