Birthday

Hello...

I know I haven't been posting much lately... I've been struggling with a health issue for 7 months now and some days are harder than others ... I've been waiting and waiting for my appointment at the hospital and my doctor has managed to bring it forward to next week then Finally, FINALLY!!  The hospital sent some medication. Yay! I'm feeling much better these past few days and hope it stays that way.

So today one of my team mates on the Double D challenge blog is celebrating a birthday...

Happy Birthday Vicki!

Here's a card I made for her ... I hope it arrived on time


I used the same BG as I have on previous cards but this time I added the musical notes die by Memory Box. 
To get that shadow look I first cut one of the musical note dies in black cardstock and inlaid it into my BG. I know, not the wisest decision as there were so many little bits to piece back...


Then I cut it again in white and adhered it over the other die cut but slightly offset. I think the effort was probably worth it in the end


I hope Vicki likes it ...

Have a lovely day and thanks so much for stopping by

I'm sorry to hear you are not feeling well Ros! Hope your doctor gets things sorted out sooner than later! Your card is fabulous! Love the pretty background!

This is gorgeous! I can practically hear the music! Sorry to hear, though, that it took such a long time for you to get treated (have you ever considered seeking treatment elsewhere?) - but then maybe it's better to focus on the fact that it finally happened and you're starting to feel better!

Super card Ros, love the background and you did have patience piecing that black layer back in. The result is stunning and I am sure Vicky will love it. Sorry to hear you are not on top form and do hope that you are sorted and raring to go again soon.

Hope the medicine helps you to feel better, Ros! The birthday card for Vicki is so pretty! Lovely background and fun music notes! I'm sure she will love it!

I know for sure that Vicky will love this and so do I! I immediately realised how much work it must have been . But your effort has turned this card into a gem. Frame-worthy. I love that background you created. Good to hear you got medication and feeling a bit better. It must be tough to deal with this for more than 7 months.
Sending a big hug!

I know Vicki loved it! How could she not? It's amazing how you created that watercolor background. Beautiful colors. Love the idea of inlaying the first die cut, too. Another one of those "why didn't I think of that" moments here. I didn't realize you've been having a health issue for so long. I'm glad you got some medication, anyway, and soon maybe you'll have it all resolved. I hope.

Definitely worth the effort. It's a great effect. I think the inking adds even more movement to the music notes. Wonderful!
