Deja vu?

You might think you've seen  these cards before - well, you have seen similar, but this is a new batch made at the request of a friend. The beautiful Inkadinkado angel stamp was inked with versamark and heat embossed with silver detail powder, with just some glitter strips and peel off greetings added. This time I used deep blue card blanks instead of black (the colour is quite deep irl). Sorry, picture is very poor - no chance to take another as I needed to give the cards to my friend.

These are for:
