First I'd like to welcome my new follower Tracy who makes some beautiful cards. I hope you'll have time to visit her blog.
The card I'm showing today was made for my friend who celebrated a Special Birthday on Christmas Day.
She made me laugh when she told me recently that when she was at Primary School the teacher asked the children "Who was born on Christmas Day" - you guessed it. Lily put up her hand and proudly told the class "I was".
This parchment card was made using a Christine Coleman pattern. I drew the outlines with a black fine liner and coloured the back of the flowers and leaves with Promarkers.
It was the background pricking and embossing and the cutwork which took the longest time to do.
I mounted the card onto some pastel rainbow paper and strengthened it by putting a white card inside.
I would like to enter my card into the Promarkers Challenge Week 329 - Flower Power
