My mum is poorly with shingles at the moment so I thought I'd make this card to cheer her up. I have used backing papers from Joanna Sheen's Cottage Garden CD (in the backing papers section). I printed it straight onto the card I used for the front/back of the card and also the insert. I started cursing when it came out as it looked so wet but reluctantly left it on the floor to dry. After 30 minutes I picked it up and could see it still looked wet but poked a finger on the edge to check. After further looking it is a highly sparkly pearlescent card that a friend bought for me recently and it's so sparkly and gorgeous!! The stamp is a Joanna Sheen Forget-me-Knot stamp which I have coloured in with Lyra watercolours and added sparkle around the image with a 700 Sakura stardust pen. It's finished off with a sentiment from the computer and some organza ribbon.
The card fits the criteria for five challenges:
