Something A Bit Different

Hi All, sorry not been around for a while, been a bit down as hubby has lost his job so haven't felt much like making cards! Have had to give myself a good shake this week though as I've had a few requests for cards so really need to get my finger out! Hopefully he'll pick something up soon and life can return to normal (if it ever was! lol).

My card today was one I made for a girl I work with. It was her birthday last week and I wanted to try something a bit different for me (have to confess I couldn't think of anything I wanted to put on her card so took the simple option). I've seen so many white on white cards that are just beautiful so decided I'd give the idea a try but used the cream linen card that I had. (The flowers on the pic have come out a bit yellow but it's all been made with the same card!). She seemed to like it, hope you do too xx

Recipe :

Outer Edge - Martha Stewart PATP Eyelet Lace
Embossing Folder - Peacock Design free with magazine

Leaves - Poppystamps Meadow Leaf
