I stamped the large cross from Chocolate Baroque's Easter Traditions A5 sheet on Cason Cold-Pressed Watercolour paper and heat embossed it in silver. Then I did a background wash with TH Distress Inks: Dusty Concord, Seedless Preserves, Chipped Sapphire and Shaded Lilac. When completely dry and rubbed Silver Ice Gelato directly on the paper in a sweeping motion and blended with my finger. Next, I stamped the gothic window from the Texture Fragments A4 sheet with Dusty Concord and cleaned the embossed surface with some Kleenex.
To brighten up the card I added a few purple sequins and teeny tiny pale purple bling. The sentiment is from the Easter Traditions sheet and is stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black.
I took these photos with my iPhone. That's my excuse today for putting up photos that could be better... not that I do a grand job with my camera, mind you. Here's the thing, I took the memory card from the camera, went down to the kitchen to make a barrel of coffee with the memory card in hand.... and that's all I remember. Haven't the foggiest where it is now. I just hope I didn't drink it! :)

Today is a super special day - it's Richard Parker's birthday!!! He was born on 24 March 2014 and that makes him one year old today. Here are a couple of photos of my boy.
He is looking shocked, maybe embarrassed that his Mama started the day by belting out his birthday song at 6am today :)
|"Whaaat?! It's my birthday?"|

And this is baby Richard the day we got him - 8 weeks after his birth. Oh so tiny!
