Post number 3

I made this card for a birthday tommorow wanted to stay away from my usual light colours and try some darker shades so i used this Sarah Kay image and watercoloured it and layered it onto some red gingham paper, matted onto red card then backed it onto some dovecraft papers i used my fiskars border punch, the sentiment is one i made on my p.c and oh I 'tried' to ink the edge but it was alittle too heavy so will have to try a lighter touch next time....oh well you live and learn.........

Thanks for taking the time to read this slightly longer than usual post, it is most appreciated!!
