Good evening, Crafty ladies & gents...
I hope you've all had a good day? Mine's been a bit hectic so no crafting for me today but yesterday I spent a good few hours creating the card below. I found this image on the Public Domain at the end of last year, and fell in love with the image & colours. I've been waiting for a day where I just wanted to create for myself i.e, no commissions, no family birthdays etc, so create I did. The image is called Lady in yellow- Carter, Pruett (1891-1955) - House & Garden 1926 and it really is beautiful to look at, I just love the yellow. Yellow is not usually a colour I use much but I teamed it up with purple mirror card and the backing papers I created in CraftArtist from the lady's dress and the wallpaper ( You can't see it but it is a pale green/flowery wallpaper). The yellow in the flowers and the pale green are from the same paper, plus the purple mirri too. I chose a pale green pearlescent card for the leaves & flourish.

I decided after I made the card that it would be for My Mum, from my Daughter for Mothering Sunday.
It really is beautiful, purely because of the image, of course ;-)
