It is challenge #6 at Paper Blooms this week and the subject is "Women of Influence" and that could be your mother or a woman in your life that means something special to you. Well I have chosen my best friend Sonya who means the world to me and I don't tell her enough. If she could she would move the world for me or my daughters. She has stepped up to the plate on countless occasions when I needed her to and does not expect anything in return. These people are rare indeed and I know that I have discovered a very rare gem and I do treasure her as do my girls. . . thankyou Sonya for being who you are. (She does read my blog on occasion so I hope she sees this entry)
This card was an order for someone for her friend to say thankyou and all the criteria she gave me was that she loves autumnal colours. I hope I have managed to encapsulate those colours. I have used the faux metal effect on this card. . .lots of embossing!!! I have also Cuttlebugged the background and then sanded the cardstock which is co'ordinations cardstock. I really like how it turned out. Anyway please enjoy.
Walk about your day with beauty.
