I forgot!

Hi Folks,

Just a short post, I made this card last week which was for the challenge over at the Stampman - Time or Travel, and guess what  -   I forgot to post it!

I have used IndigoBlu stamps that I bought at a recent craft show, I wanted to make it 'girly' and used Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick as well as some Antique Linen to tone it down lightly.  The stamping is all done with Memento Rich Cocoa.  My flower is made from an old book page, some gold organza ribbon and lace, its misted with bronze perfect pearls and is quite sparkly, although that doesn't show in the photo.

I would like to say 'hello' to my new followers Darnell and May, lovely to see you!  My Celebration Candy is still open for another week, so you still have time to enter.

So - I will enter this card into:
  Crafty Creations - 3 Different embellishments (Flower, swirl and ribbon)
  Love to Create - Anything Goes
  Make It Monday - Anything Goes
  Paper Playtime - Anything goes with a Sentiment

Thanks for looking,

Avril xx

Think the 'girlie' colours and the vintage style images work beautifully together. At least you made something even if it was late! I spent ages thinking about an entry and then never got round to it in the end!! Enjoy your weekend.
