I'm Alive...!

Honest, I am...! Although I'm not sure about my crafting mojo... (as this card might well attest, lol!)

I'm still having health issues - and family issues, but those are a whole other story - but I finally managed to drag myself to my craft desk today to make a card.

This is actually for a friend who's birthday is next month, but since I don't know how I'm going to feel from one day to the next, I thought I'd get it done while I was feeling well enough.

I used an image from digi darla and a computer generated sentiment. The image is coloured with promarkers: Black, cool grey 3, cool grey 4, warm grey 1, warm grey 2, cinnamon, honeycomb, spice, ruby, pine, sandstone, caramel, terracotta, mustard, gold, blush and pastel pink.

The paper is from papermania's bookprint pack, layered on black card. I added another computer generated sentiment inside and a stamp inside from stampin' up coloured with warm grey 1, warm grey 2 and pastel pink and embellished with gems.

I am submitting to the following challenges:
- Craft Room Challenge - In the Library
- Sketch N Stash #111 - Sketch
- Stamp With Fun #206 - Birthday
- Created With Love #36 - Recipe: 1 Image, 2 Design Papers, 2 Embellishments
