Birthday Hybrid card

Hi All

Did you have a good Valentine's Day yesterday? My OH had a meeting in London which only lasted the morning, so I got the train up and met him at Waterloo and we had a lovely afternoon walking round the streets, with a visit to Covent Garden where we sat sipping wine and listening to a quintet of violinists with one oboe player, playing music. We explored the market and after a great meal we headed back home walking across the golden jubilee footbridge and taking in the amazing sky line of London in the dark.

So for today here is another card created in PSE using downloaded image, papers and elements and just a couple of 3d embellishments on it.




I used the same elements to create the insert for the card.

Another easy one to put in the post box!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by to see me.

hugs {brenda] xox



EDIT and update
I am trying to learn some functions in PSE and have found out how to fade the edges - thought I would see what this looks like on the blog. Not bad but must try some other effects.



Update 2
OK found another way to fade the edges, think I might prefer this way!!

Hi Brenda,

Your day yesterday sounds like it was perfect. I love the oboe!

Your card is great. I haven't made any cards using digital images; maybe I should try it.

Hugs,

Hello Brenda
London is not renown as being the city of love, but you seem to have made a good job of it.....
Your card is just delightful, how would you feel about writing a tutorial on how you feathered/faded your edges Brenda, I get myself in all sorts of strife with this technique, it is the brushes that I cannot get sorted.
