About Moi

I was born in June 1981, I'm a hearing impaired paper-crafter who loves all things crafty. I sew, although I'm still very much a novice at sewing. I bake and cook hopefully all kinds of delicious treats. I have a huge passion for photography and the camera {yes I'm old school I still use an actual camera} is never far from me. I also love creative writing from making up sentiments/verses for my cards and other paper-craft projects to penning some fiction. I am an avid reader and I may even throw in some book reviews on here too!

One Stitch at a time ~ Appreciation

Good Morning, it's appreciation week over at One Stitch at a time, and here is my inspiration.

Image used:

Peacock Profile by Ali Peeps Art

Products used:
Patients Strong insert
Gold mirri card
Floral embossing folder
Yellow Ribbon
Spiced Marmalade and seedless preserves distress stain {for the background of the card}
Liquid Pearls
Britania “thank you” die
Pruple gems
White cardstock

This is a really simple card in a friend’s favourite colour.  The image was chosen because it makes me think of her, beautiful as a peacock.  I’ve printed and coloured the image using promarkers.  The background is embossed and matted and layered.  I’ve used a yellow organza style ribbon down the side and some liquid pearls for some opulence.  

I am entering this in the following challenges:
