A step away from the usual cuties !!



Ok so this is a little different for me !! I see so many elegant cards on my travels through Blogland, some with few elements but still manage to be gorgeous, it looks so easy but in practice it's not really. I wanted to try and create something elegant than my usual cutie cards...quite a challenge cos i LOVE my cute stamps,lol.

So here is my attempt...i used a sentiment stamp i have had from the beginning of my step into crafting..papers 7Gypsies were a steal at 33p in the sale..butterfly is from a K&co kit..scalloped mount is from Craftworkcards..satin ribbon from my ever growing ribbon stash.

Thanks for popping by xx

  12. It's worked VERY well Katy. I've been trying to experiment a little lately. I think it's nice to learn a few new tricks and have some more skills to draw on isn't it? Maybe I'll be brave enough to post them one day! lol!
