So i need to make a card for my Grandmother’s birthday at the end of this month.  I thought i’d share.  I started with a blank A5 cream card, which i then coloured with distress ink.  I love distress ink, even though i only have 4 of the colours i still seem to use them for everything!  I then used a piece of patterned card stock and a gorjuss girls topper to make the main decoration of the card.

I then felt the need to decorate the card with something else, i almost used some die cut paper flowers, but decided the colour match wasn’t good enough.  I then had a poke through my ribbon collection and decided to colour in a white trim (Tim Holtz ideology) with the blue distress ink.  I then needed a bit of darker blue on the flowers of the trim so i used a darker blue alcohol ink.  I dabbed a little of that on with my sponge and i think it came out quite well.  I then added a happy birthday message topper, which also got the ink treatment as it started off a lilac colour.

all it needs now is an insert and an envelope….now if only i could think what to get her for a present!
