Be Happy, Be Bright, Be You!

Hi Everyone..

I have a lovely wee cream and pink card to share with you today…

I missed 3 days crafting last week, due to birthday’s and I had a real sore neck/back, glad to report the chiropractor fixed me yay!

However, this has made me a little behind with making stuff, recording videos and blog posting, but I will get there.. there is no real rush.

For the card today, i used up the leftover strips of patterned paper from when I made the rosettes the other day, I glued them down to a sheet of cardstock to create a nice shabby chic panel for this card

be happy

Supplies List:-

  • Daler & Rowney water colour card for the base tomake a 5.5″ square card
  • Glitz Designs beautiful Dreamer patterned paper
  • Leaf / Branch Die
  • Lace
  • Sequins
  • Sentiment is from a journaling card, chopped down to size
  • Stardust stickles
