hAnglar stAnglar - Girl holding rose


I have managed to make a card, the first since before Christmas and now I know the reason why it has taken me so long. I cleared all my crafting stash away from the Lounge to the bedroom for the festive season and could not bear to fetch it all back down again. I decided what I would need for the card and took it downstairs. It has taken me two nights to make it as I was up and down stairs like a yo-yo for bits and pieces. I will never make another card under these circumstances again, so I need to sort something out.

Do I craft in the Lounge or do I craft upstairs??

I have also decorated the inside of the card ...........

The image is from hAnglar and stAnglar which I adore, she has been coloured using promarkers. The backing papers are Botanical range from Prima and the circle diecut is a Marianne Design. Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts which have been touched up with a glimmer mist spray and brushed with Walnut Stain Tim Holtz distressing ink. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz Adage Ticket. The seam binding ribbon, corner silver embellishment and pearls are from my stash.

I have made this card for the following challenges:

    I have the small box room as a study cum craft room and I sit up here every night, but I have just bought a new laptop so that when I blog and comment etc I will be able to do that downstairs, then I will have the best of all worlds.
    Hope you are well.
