Scene card

Good evening friends, very grey and rainy/thundery
here tonight. Where has the Summer gone?
After looking after our two grandchildren today
(including lots of football) I am shattered lol.
I do love having them here though and they 
certainly keep me fit! 
Just got the energy to edit a card I made yesterday
and show you it. Come and have a quick peek.
This is the 8th go at making this card!!! I wasn't
going to be defeated lol. So many in the bin now,
.........unusual for me.
I stamped the scene, shaded it using a circle mask,
then added a few gold splashes and a few touches
using a Copic.Hmm doesn't sound that hard does it?
.....it bloomin' well was I can tell you ;)
Anyway here it is, like it or not....I am still undecided.
ps. Here is a quick photo I took of our granddaughter
 Amelia. Isn't she a cutie....I bought her that butterfly
 dress. Infact I bought her another dress today lol.......
.....well how can a  granny resist ;) 
The party went well too btw., lots of food and drink
 consumed  and a good time had by all. My son told me
the children wanted to come back again when they 
got home aww ;)

  1. Hi Viv
    Another gorgeous header ... Stunning...
    Fabulous card... Beautiful picture of your grand daughter
    Hugs Sylvie xx

  2. gorgeous card, viv!! I would have given up after the third try!! oh your granddaughter is a cutie!! when I read the part about your weather I thought you must be living down the street from me as we are having rain/cold as well!

  3. This looks stunning! So clever how you've achieved a monochrome with that one shade of ink (which is lovely by the way). It feels very calm and warm. Fab! And Amelia is adorable! What a fun smile! x

  4. That looks fabulous Viv... well done for your perseverance - it paid off!

    And awwww to your gorgeous little grand-daughter - I think I'd be doing the same if I had one!

  5. Amelia is DARLING!! Look at those dimples!! Such a happy face. So glad the party went well.

    Sorry your card caused such grief in the making. 8 tries! Good for you persisting as you've ended up with a work of beauty!

  6. What a beautiful photo...of both the granddaughter and the card. Your card is stunning with the use of just one card. thanks for sharing at Less is More!

  7. Such a lovely card and an even cuter grand daughter! My boys wear me out with football so I know how you feel! :-)

  8. Love your monochrome scene Viv, beautiful! As is Amelia, how do you resist that dimpled smile?!

    And you card is a stunner, that image is gorgeous and perfect in the sepia tones with the gold accents.
