A Good Read

I made this card for a friends birthday, she is an avid reader and this new Editor Tilda stamp is just perfect for her.
I`ve coloured with distress inks and added glossy accents to her glasses for the lenses.

The background papers are Teresa Collins, other products used are Magnolia DooHickey Doily die, Hero arts lace, Tim Holtz ideology Adage Tickets and the large flower is handmade from the Tim Holtz tattered pine cone die which is my latest acquisition and I cannot stop using it, it makes the prettiest flowers!

I don`t usually decorate the inside of my cards but I was inspired in the workshop I did recently with Claudia Rosa who always decorates the inside of her cards, so I thought I`d have a go with this one. I`m going to tuck a waterstones book gift voucher under the string on the left for my friends birthday.

The sentiment is on the little tag that pulls out from behind the back layer.

I`d like to enter this card into the Just Magnolia challenge. This time around the theme is "Anything goes with the option of handmade flowers"

Thanks for looking in, bye for now and happy crafting xx
