CARD USING THE BELLEEK TECHNIQUE



One of my very favorite cards to make is one using the Belleek Technique. Are you familar with it?  If not, Kittie at Kittie Kraft does a great tutorial on it here.  She also has some beautiful cards using this technique.
 I used an Anna Griffin Embossing Folder, Wendy Vecchi's Cornflower Blue Achiever Ink, Martha Stewart Flower Punch, several Marianne Leaf Flourishes and Magnolia Summer Foliage dies.  A Spellbinder frame die for the focal point created the look I was after.  I popped up a white card stock layer and also the Anna Griffin layer. 
I have a friend who is very sick and in ICU.  I plan to send her this card as soon as she is in a regular room.
Her name is Jean and can certainly use our prayers.  Thank you.

I love getting your comments and appreciate them so much.  It has been great hearing from so many of you.   Thanks so much.
