Sisterly love!

Hello everyone from a beautiful and sunny east Ireland :) hope the sun is shining wherever you are.

In the past two months I have been lucky enough to catch up with my two older sisters. Both live far away, but we still managed to get more than a few snippets of conversations in while they were "home"! It is truly wonderful to reconnect and catch up with sisters after some time of being away.

My sister Emily's birthday was the end of April but I didn't get to see her until the weekend. This is the card I made for her.

I used vellum paper, beautiful glittery cupcake paper, pink embossed board, buttons, washi tape, Tim Holtz Bigz label die, flowers, outline stickers.

I only had a white oval shape, but needed it to fit in with the cream or colours. I used a blue ink pad to ink it up, to match in with the rest of the card. I LOVE the effect and colour!

I LOVE all the summer, fresh colours :D  I have looked at these papers (the printed vellum and the glittery cupcake paper) for months, and never got around to using them! I was so glad to combine all the different papers and boards to complement each other.

I hope you are having a great day! Thanks for stopping by, please leave a comment! :)
