I am 47 years old, married to my soulmate, with 3 grown, married children. I’ve always loved crafting of all kinds, but started carding in 2009, because finding ‘just the right card' for loved ones was really important to me, and I wasn’t happy with what I found on the shelves. I am currently on 7 Design Teams and spend a LOT of my time crafting! I love to add a personalised touch to my cards, so I enjoy knowing as much as I can about the recipient.

I took some time to consider what I enjoy most about this art we love, called card-making. I whittled it down to 3 main aspects: A light 'shabby-chic' look; colouring, and flowers as embellishments.
For this card I used an image from Sweet Escape Digis, called Winter Girl, and coloured her with markers, then cut her out with a blade. I decided to oversize her on the card, to be able to do some detailed colouring. She's been mounted onto the background with puffy pads.
My papers are from the Stamperia House of Roses paper pack. I've distressed the edges. I've added 3 plastic swirls by Anna Belle, and KaiserCraft pearls. My flowers are all Prima.
Thank you so much to Linda for sharing her beautiful creation. Please do check out Linda's Blog
