Birthday Card

I have been sick again. This time, it was so much worse! I tried to come up yesterday afternoon to make a card and got sick just walking up the stairs. It was awful. I still feel ill, but a whole lot better than the last two days. Oh, and our cable went out. We took our box back to the cable company and were just going to see about keeping internet (or getting it from another company) and cancelling TV cable. It was out yesterday and I assumed that it was because of that- but as it turned out, everyone's was out in the area and it came back on in the evening.

I made this card for someone DH works with. He wanted a card with a beach and maybe some palm trees. He had no special request forr colors or anything, so this is what I came up with. I made the bow with my crafters ultimate companion. The picture is water-colored with Martha Stewart markers and I embossed the lines with colored pens and clear embossing powder. I added real shells in the corner too. He also gave me the most beautiful pic of him and his girlfriend in front of the bridge here in Charleston at sunset. I added it on the inside and decorated that too. Since it's personal, I will not be adding those pics, but it was a stunning photo! I really hopes she and he like the card.

I will be doing a tutorial later on the embossing and watercolor technique I used later today.
