Pink, pink and more pink!

Before I made the rosettes that I showed here I tried out making a large rosette (6" diameter) using my newly acquired Hougie board. When I was looking for something else today (stickers etc to put on the notebooks that I've altered for tomorrow's sale - yes, I've actually done some at last!) I came across this pink and white rosette which was the trial one and thought I ought to use it. So my base card is 8 x 8 to accommodate it, matted with a bright pink card with a tapestry finish - corners were cut with Fiskars celestial scissors. I stamped the Hero Arts circle lace doily stamp with versamark and heat embossed with hot pink powder. I then cut it out with a scalloped nestie. The flowers with pearls were from the 99p store.

I'm not sure what I'll do with this card because it's rather large and I don't think anyone will buy it, but at least I enjoyed making it.

Christmas shopping with love

The background paper for this card is from the Kate Knight Christmas collection with a torn strip of paper that came with and old Making Cards, with a piece of gingham ribbon down the side. The lady laden with Christmas shopping is a decoupaged Jolly Nation character.
