Black With Cream!!!

Todays card is made using an Elusive Images stamp set that I love and haven't used for ages.
I've used the border stamp to stamp at the top and bottom of a cream card panel and then added a black card panel over the top as a background for the main image which is stamped onto another panel of cream. I have touched up the rose image with some Frosted Lace Stickles and offset the panel to the side so that I could fit a length of silver thread down the side.
The whole panel was then added to a cream DL card.

I'm sorry I haven't blogged for a couple of days. I just needed a little break as I was feeling a bit weary. A couple of earlier nights have put me right but I have got in a right pickle with my reading matter and have three books on the go at the!!!
DD took me out this morning for breakfast at Bridgemere garden centre. We had a stroll around Hobbycraft while we were there and I spent all of £3.25.......hey big spender eh? Mind you I did come straight out of there and spent twenty pounds in Cotton Traders on a couple of things from the sale so I wasn't as good as I intended to be.
Off to snuggle down and watch a film with Mr Manic and DD now so I'll say goodnight.
Thanks for your visit.

  3. I love this stamp set too Sheila and the resulting card is beautifully elegant.

    I reckon it's the winter that makes us all feel so tired Sheila. It's the SAD syndrome I reckon. I know it makes some people really ill but I think lots of us get is in varying degrees.
