Colour Create # 5 - Blue and Brown



Evening folks!

I'm going to make this a lightening quick post because I am really late with this card and also seriously behind with my blog hopping and commenting. The weekend has run away with me, friends and family calling unexpectedly which isn't a bad thing, in fact it's lovely...... but you then have to put things like crafting and blogging on the back burner a bit. Never mind, I'm sat here now with glass of wine in hand, playing a quick game of catch up!

My card is fairly self-explanatory really - I had the pleasure of using this lovely Magnolia stamp which arrived in my yummy candy sent by Jacqui this weekend. I thought it would work perfectly for this week's extra option of lace and pearls..... oh and I am quite pleased with the sentiment, it came to me in a bit of an inspired moment, lol!



Materials:
Image - Magnolia
Sentiment - Computer generated
Papers - offcuts
Punch - Woodware
Die - Nestie Scalloped Oval
Embossing - Cuttlebug Script
Colouring - ProMarkers
Lace - Around the Block frame tape
Embellishments - Pearls from my stash
Accents - Stickles and Liquid Pearls

Right then, I'm off to start a hopping...
