Todays card looks so much better in real!!!
I have great difficulty getting decent pics even using my daylight lamp. They turn out much sharper in real daylight but unfortunately I am not home during the lighter hours at the moment.
Anyhoo....I am pleased with everything about this card except for the gold silk paper.....where was my!!! That paper is sooooo going in the bin when I get back upstairs. I think I will dismantle the card and redo it using maybe a black and white check as the background.

The tulip is Magenta and has been stamped onto green and red papers then cut and layered before being coated in Glossy Accents.
Central tile is black/turquoise Core'dinations from the Spell Caster collection which has been Cuttlebugged and sanded then layered onto gold card.
Edge trimmings are Doodlebug Paper Frills and I added brads to the side edges.

Really, really sorry about the bad photo but I will retake it at the weekend and replace it.

Nothing much exciting going on at the mo. Had a very quiet weekend just pootling about and setting up my new blog which you may have seen. Hoping to have a bit more energy this weekend and get some house jobs done that should have got done last weekend. I always seem to be playing catch up but's all part of lifes rich tapestry.........she says with tongue very firmly in!!!

Right.....I am off back upstairs to clear away my mess. Steptoe's rag and bone yard would look tidy compared to my room as I have been sorting out all my altered art stuff and putting it all together in one place.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Hi Sheila, love the card, am I right in thinking that it is a 4 x 4 size.
    Have saved your new blog to my favourite blog sites, I don't know where you find the time to do two blogs as well as working in the shop.

  2. Hi Christine
    No this card is a 6 x 6 favourite size.
    Mmmmm.....I don't know where I find the time!!!

  3. Oooh I hope you do take another picture! As I read about the gold paper, etc... I'm sure this card is absolutely stunning in person!
