A Card From Anne (Redanne)

Hi everyone. As many of you may know I share a birthday with my bestest crafting buddy Anne (Redanne) and beg your indulgence to share the most beautiful card she made for me - this is so special it deserved a post of it's own.


I'm afraid I can't tell you how this was made, I just know the design is perfect - a whole heap of texture with the paste stencilling and inks yet you look at that butterfly and then see the sentiment because of the clever placement of those arrows. And it doesn't feel overcomplicated because Anne's kept the colour palette limited so that it all blends seamlessly (can you tell who's been doing a composition class?!!!) Here are some close ups...





Isn't this a wonderful card? Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share this. Anne is so clever and I feel honoured to be her friend. At the end of the day isn't that what it's all about?
Whatever you're up to take care of yourselves, Jenny xxx
