A grand day out

Hi everyone, I hope you've had a good week and the weekend is off to a good start. A card and it's presentation box to share today which was made for a very special lady who's just had her birthday. 

Tilda and Edwin siblings are having a grand day out in the country, sitting among the flowers under the old oak tree :). Everything is watercoloured and background scene doodled in. The swirly roses are hand cut from colour washed thin paper and the Magnolia DooHickey vintage flowers were cut from the same paper. I added lots of pearl pen pearls, faux stitching and a handmade background paper.

I made a box for the card to be presented in using thick blue card and Prima paper.

All the flowers and leaves are made using DooHickey dies cut from the same blue card and Prima paper with the edges either inked or distressed with sandpaper. I made a band for the middle using a Martha Stewart punch on the edges.

Thank you for visiting as always and I'll be back soon with a post about the gift that went with this card :)

your project is out of this world gorgeous. I love the soft colors, the very pretty little box, and this fabulous card. Your coloring of tilda and Edwin, makes me dream you would live close by, and I could take a workshop, and see your work. I love the scenery you created, love the flowers you draw around them, FABULOUS.
Have a love weekend.

Your scenery on this card is so lovely. I love how you doodled on the tree leaves and the circle of flowers around Tilda and Edwin look so lovely.
