Sweetpea birthday

Hi Everyone, my card today is for the Outlawz sketch challenge, this has been a "real" challenge as I still have no mojo.

I found this image in my files listed under freebie images, so bad of me, as I usually file under the designers name. I coloured it in PS and added a green shadow behind the image, maybe a little too pale? I designed the papers in PS, adding images to add texture for the pink and the green.

All were printed and cut out, the front layer 3D'd so that I could add the die cuts made from Create and Craft pale pearl card, which matched wonderfully with the paler pink and the darker, although it looks the same in the photo. I also chose the Tattered Lace die, as I felt it looked like sweetpea tendrils curling around the corners.

I decide it would be a birthday card as you can see from the insert I also did in PS.

Faith, that is gorgeous. Back in the day, I didn't save images with Designer Names because I never thought that I would be posting this info that it would matter, hehe. Love those colors.

Commented o this over at Outlawz, Faith, but had to come by for a closer look and to read the details. I love this card! Fab color combo and you are absolutely correct about the die cuts looking like sweet pea tendrils. Incredible card - how can you say there was no mojo? lol

Wow, what a stunning and elegant looking card Faith! I don't know what mojo you are looking for because it doesn't look like you lost it to me! Love that image and how you shaded and such. The die you used is so pretty and goes perfect on this card. I love how you have some of the "loops" hanging on the image. The colors are so pretty as well that you have used. This makes a great birthday card! Hugs, Brenda
