Pearls in My Hair

Sorry I never got back to the previous post, just never got time on Tues! My Dad underwent an op on Tuesday and got home early evening in a considerable amount of pain.  Glad to report now that after a few nights sleep he is doing really well and is much more comfortable.  Now all we need do is keep him out of the garden for the next two weeks! (He's not one to be an invalid for long!)

Back to my card now and it's another Day for Daisies image that Colin gave me for Christmas.  Again everyone else seemed to use it over a year ago, but that's me just getting round to it now!

She's called Pearls in my Hair - Available here.  Colouring is by Promarker & I added liquid pearls to her hair - as instructed in said title! Papers are the lovely Bo Bunny - Pincushion Collection and the sentiment LOTV.

I Love Promarkers - Use a Digi - ADFD
As You Like It - Favourite Embossing technique - Why? Tried both powders and folders but have to say folders are my preferred option as there are just so many great folders around whice create such super backgrounds and strips.
ADFD - Kraft - 2nd entry - please say if this isn't allowed?
Sketch Saturday - Blast from the past - SS -228
I'm quite bad for doing this!
Once I see my card on the computer screen once I've photographed it I want to make changes! Above I thought the embossed border was just a bit broad and needed to be broken up.  Couldn't cut it to make it thinner.  Couldn't add ribbon as it was all stuck down - so went with buttons!
