First Kiss ahhh....

Well I think I've just about got over my fear of doing this, hopefully I'll more views soon and please feel free to leave me a message I need all the encouragement I can get lol!!

For my second post I would like to share a card that I have made using a Sarah Kay image called 'First Kiss', I think this is such an adorable image and is a dream to colour. It would make a beautiful anniversary card don't you think?

I really need to start taking more pictures when I am photographing my cards I promise I will do for my next post.

For this card I have used the stunning first edition papers 'Spring Feast' I totally love these papers, although I do find it very hard to use them at least there is more than 1 sheet of each design in the pad, 2 to use, 1 to keep and 1 to stroke. 

I've distressed all the edges with vintage photo and then glittered them with stickles.

The doily, ribbon and border are all from my stash as is the die cut swirl.

The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I have also put little pearl stamens in among the flowers, I think I bought these off eBay.

Well I'm off now to get my little boys birthday card made, he's 4 tomorrow! where does the time go!!
I will be back with his card tomorrow for you to see.

Thank you to anyone who is taking the time to read  this, its much appreciated.

I forgot to mention both these cards are on sale in my ebay shop for anyone who is interested.

Love and hugs Kat
