BLIMEY I MADE A CARD!


I don't often make cards but a dear friend's birthday is coming up and I wanted to create something special for her. There's a new challenge here which asked you to use "fresh" colours, and this was the result. I used a scrap of striped paper which went well with the cardstock, then I used a background stamp from Crafty Individuals in grey on some ice blue card. The image is one of my all-time favourite stamps from Hampton. Added some stamped scrolls, a silver charm, and some paper lace.
